DALLAS - Dallas Jesuit has had coaches from schools all over the country flocking to it to check out junior wide receiver Jake Oliver. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound standout has been putting up big numbers ever since his freshman season. However, he is not the only top junior that plays for the Rangers.
Offensive tackle J.J. Gustafson and linebacker Jordan Mastrogiovanni are also receiving their fair share of interest. In fact, Gustafson has picked up an offer from an in-state program and could be close to another.
"So far I have an offer from SMU," the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Gustafson said. "Texas Tech might be (close to offering) but it's still up in the air. I don't really know."

Mastrogiovanni is still waiting on his first offer but has been hearing from several programs.
"I get mail and I've kind of talked to a couple of coaches," the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Mastrogiovanni said. "Mostly right now it's Texas Tech. Other than that I'm just getting letters - nothing too serious yet."
The two have had a chance to take in a couple of games on college campuses so far this fall.
"I've been to a TCU game and a Texas Tech game," Gustafson said. "TCU, I liked it a lot. It's a great campus. Texas Tech, I really liked the feel of the school. All the players are nice and all the coaches are nice."
"I went to Texas Tech and I also went up to a TCU game against SMU," Mastrogiovanni said. "I liked them both. I got a chance to talk to coach (Sam) McElroy from Texas Tech. J.J. and I spoke to him for a little bit."
Though it is still very early in the recruiting process Gustafson admits that four programs currently stand out above the rest.
"I have kind of four top schools going in," he said. "(Texas) A&M, Texas, OU and TCU - those have been my four top schools since I started the process."
Mastrogiovanni, on the other hand, says that everybody is equal in his mind at the moment.
"I didn't really grow up a fan of anyone in particular," he said. "It's all up in the air. I just want to see where I fit best if I'm lucky enough to have schools offer me."
