One good thing about having outstanding bloodlines is you get to work out and learn from players who have earned a certain amount of success athletically.
Cornerback Bryan Douglas (5-11, 170, 4.4) from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne had the opportunity to work out with his cousin Oregon cornerback Walter Thurmond, III and Oregon linebacker Eddie Pleasant.
Both D-I players were very impressed after their workout with the fast rising corner and are going to make sure that the Oregon coach in charge of recruiting the area, Don Pellum know all about him. Both players told, Bryan's Dad, Stacy Douglas that he is ready and will be getting offers soon.
Oregon isn't the only school that is beginning to see the light
"I spoke with Demetrice Martin, cornerbacks coach for Washington and he told me that they definitely want Bryan, but they want him to come to their Rising stars camp on June 26 – 27 and if he performs, there will be an offer made," Stacy Douglas said. "He received a hand written letter and had a phone conversation with Tony White from San Diego State. White wanted to inform Bryan that the Aztecs are keeping a close eye on him for his cornerback skills and told him to be prepared for a big summer of offers."
Oregon State and Idaho State are also showing early interest in Douglas.
As a junior, he was challenged a little bit because there was a senior playing at the other corner, but the opposition soon learned that they would play picking on Douglas.
Douglas racked up 40 tackles, had 11 deflected passes and three interceptions, a good enough performance to earn all-league honors in one of the toughest league's in the City Section.
Douglas is currently working on his skills working out with Beyond Elite 2000 (B2G) on a weekly basis and is planning on going to other camps.
Douglas is an outstanding student who is already qualified carrying a 3.3 GPA and a passing 1230 SAT. To give you an indication of his competitive spirit, Douglas is planning on taking the SAT again. He is also on schedule to graduate in December meaning will be able to enroll in school in time to participate in spring ball.
