After impressing at the U.S. Army All-America Combine in San Antonio, Denver Mullen tight end Ryan Hewitt became a name that many schools became more aware of.
It wasn't long after the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder impressed at the combine that mail began to pour in from all over the nation.
Letters from schools like UCLA, Cal, Notre Dame, Colorado, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State began to litter his mail box.
And then shortly after that the offers came.
The latest offer came from Washington State after he received an earlier offer from Stanford.
While Hewitt admits it's early in the process, the offer from the Cardinal has caught his eye.
"Stanford is a favorite since I went and visited them on Junior Day and have not gone to see Washington State yet," he said. "I would probably say along with Stanford, my top schools would be UCLA, Cal, Notre Dame, Colorado, Washington and Vanderbilt."
So why are the schools so interested in Hewitt?
"I think it's mostly because I run good routes, and I have a good set of hands," he said. "I would probably say the best way to describe my playing style is aggressive. I like to play hard and get the job done."
And he's not settling for where he's at now. Hewitt said he works out hard with his team every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
"We get up at 6:30 a.m.," he said. "Our whole team is getting stronger, and I'm doing what I can to get even better, too."
