The Evergreen State of Washington has another strong year for football talent especially for elite talent. There could be a good case for at least three players to get the highly coveted five-star ranking from Rivals.com.
One of them is defensive tackle Cameron Elisara (6-3, 275, 4.9) from Spokane (Wash.) Ferris.
In only four games as a junior, Elisara racked up 35 tackles and 10 sacks. His 10 sacks projects to a 25 sack season or more. His short-lived season still saw him earn all-league honors in 2004.
Elisara had a high ankle sprain but he is now totally healed. He is running at full speed and doing cut and agility drills at full speed.
Elisara already has five offers on the table. The latest offer came in from Nebraska.
The Cornhusker brass told Elisara that they think he's the best defensive tackle prospect in the country. He also has an offer from Stanford and the Cardinal staff has the same sentiments about Elisara.
Idaho, Oregon and Arizona State have also offered Elisara an offer.
The Washington Huskies also think that Elisara is among the very best defensive linemen in the country and the Seattle school could be next to offer.
Another school on the verge of offering Elisara is Cal. K-State is also very interested and are recruiting Elisara hard.
Though Elisara hasn't heard from Michigan or USC, he would love to hear from them.
"If a school shows interest in me," Elisara said. "I will be open to them and be interested."
Elisara will participate at the NIKE Camp to be held in Palo Alto on May 21st. He will possibly camp at Washington and Oregon. As far as a full contact camp, Elisara is looking into possibilities but nothing is set.
Elisara is also an outstanding student who carries a 3.5 GPA.
