Woodson Greer has not picked up any offers yet but he's so physical and talented that Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra coach Scott Altenberg thinks it's only a matter of time until most Pac-10 schools are all over his outside linebacker.
"Everybody that comes by loves him," Altenberg said. "When you look at him, he looks like a stud. You watch him on film and as the season went he became more dominant and more dominant. In that state game, he was running around and looked like a blue-chip, No. 1 linebacker in town.
"Washington loves him. Oregon loves him. These guys just love him. People see him and they're like, man, what about that guy? He's a great leader. He's all cut, arms down to his ankles. He's a player."
Greer said Washington, Washington State and San Jose State are showing the most interest in him and he seems to like the Huskies a lot - not only because of coach Steve Sarkisian but the way the program is being run these days.
"They talk about chances to play when you first get there," Greer said. "I like the way they run their practices now with Sarkisian and how they're changing things up there and how they have a new way of doing things.
"Everybody likes how Pete Carroll used to run his practices and coach Sarkisian took some of that stuff up to Washington. It's kind of a live practice, competition every day. You have a chance every day to get on the field."
Getting on the field early is not incredibly important to Greer but that's one reason why he wants to listen to San Jose State. It's not in the Pac-10 but there is still opportunity for exposure - and a better chance to play as a freshman. Greer is at least willing to listen early on.
"A couple players from here went there and they started sophomore year and played some their freshman year," Greer said. "It's a great place to play. They have some big-time games. They're playing Alabama the first game of the season this year. I'd get a lot of exposure through that."
Greer has called Washington State a few times but nothing major has happened with the Cougars yet. He plans to attend the Los Angeles Nike Camp and hopefully the USC Rising Stars Camp this summer to gain more exposure.
A big senior season will certainly help his recruiting stock. Since so many scouts will be on campus because of wide receiver George Farmer, defensive end Jason Gibson, athlete Marqise Lee and other top prospects.
"That's probably the most important thing is showing I can play college level," Greer said. "People who have been here since freshman year, Jason, George, David (Moala) transferring in and Conner (Preston) being here, a lot of scouts come through because of them, everybody else gets seen. There is a lot of exposure because of the people who came before and the people who are here right now."
