Brett Rypien took a few days off after his junior season but not many as the 2015 four-star quarterback prepares for a big spring and summer.
The Spokane (Wash.) Shadle Park standout still has six offers but many others are showing interest and Rypien said he's solely focused on development this off-season.
"I took a couple days off but I'm back into things now," Rypien said.
"I'm not playing basketball for the first time in five years. I'm just focusing on putting on some more pounds and trying to build some arm strength. I self-evaluated myself after the season and wrote some goals down and I'm trying to work hard and get ready for next season."
So far, Rypien, who took another unofficial visit to Washington State this past weekend, has been offered by Boise State, Colorado State, Idaho, Mississippi State, Oregon State and Washington State.
A bunch of programs have reached out to Rypien, who put up big numbers in his junior season and he's hopeful more offers are on the way.
"I've been talking to Duke a few times," Rypien said. "I've been in touch with ASU a lot and I've been in touch with Stanford a little bit, too. I think I might be close to a couple more offers but nothing huge so far."
Like many West prospects, Rypien is keeping a close watch on Washington. Former Boise State coach Chris Petersen is with the Huskies now and he's interested to see how the recruitment goes with them moving forward.
"I have not talked to coach Petersen or any of the staff members at Washington yet," Rypien said. "They just offered the 2014 commit from Boise (Jalen Greene) so it will be interesting to see if they come with an offer or not. That's huge. That's a big pickup for Washington getting (Petersen)."
