Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian has several D-I prospects for the class of 2010 one of them is linebacker Zac Stout (6-2, 220, 4.65). He already has four offers on the table and has interest from several more schools.
As a junior, Stout earned first-team all-state, first-team all-CIF, first-team all-county and first-team all-league after accounting for 112 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
Stout has been making a name for himself since his freshman season at Oaks when he played six games as a freshman on a State Championship team. Those six games included the league, CIF and state championship earning a varsity letter on a team that sent 11 players to the D-I level. He did that while rushing over 1,000 yards and leading the freshman team in tackles.
Then as a sophomore, Stout started all 14 games and helped Oaks Christian win their fifth consecutive league and CIF championship after leading the team in tackles with 112. He also accounted 22 tackles for loss, five forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception.
Stout earned first-team all-league and was Rookie of the Year as a sophomore.
On the recruiting trail, Stout is another player who came away impressed with Cal's junior day a couple weeks ago.
"Cal's junior day went well," Stout said. "I went there with (teammates) Cassius Marsh and Erik Kohler."
"Everything that Cal promoted was awesome, from their academics, to their football program.," Stout said. "I have nothing else planned in regards to junior days or camps. I have nothing scheduled."
What is Stout looking for in a college?
"A nice college atmosphere and the people I'm going to be around will be considerations," Stout said. "The football program of course will be important, as well the academics."
"I will be making my mind up pretty soon," Stout said. "Probably the summertime, but maybe even sooner, I'm going to try to visit all the schools that I have offered before I make a decision."
Stout currently holds offers from BYU, Arizona, Oregon State and Washington. He is getting recruiting interest from Cal, Oregon, UCLA and UCLA.
