Although just a sophomore, Issaquah (Wash.) Skyline quarterback Jake Heaps is already one of the top prospects in the entire West region. The talented signal caller had a huge sophomore season and picked up two more offers in the last week.
Heaps, 6-1, 180 pounds not only put up big numbers as a sophomore, but led his team to an undefeated season and a state championship. The signal caller completed 202-336 passes for 3,095 yards and 31 touchdowns and just seven picks.
He also rushed 95 times for 409 yards and 14 more scores. He shows up very well on film and had a lot of tools that translate well to the next level. Heaps has a live arm, is very accurate and throws the ball on time.
He throws a nice deep ball and is just as dangerous throwing outside of the pocket as he is in it. He's also able to make a play with his legs when the play breaks down, shows poise and toughness and most of all, he's a winner.
On the recruiting front, Heaps picked up early offers from BYU and Washington and added two more in the last week.
"Jake spoke with Coach Harbaugh from Stanford last Thursday on the phone and received an offer from them," Jakes father Steve said. "Jim thought Jake was the most polished sophomore quarterback that he has seen in a long time. It is an honor to receive any kind of scholarship, but Stanford is pretty cool.
"The following day, Jake visited USC and took in a team meeting along with a position meeting with OC Coach Sark and met Mark Sanchez, Mitch Mustain, and Aaron Corp. He also ttended their team practice which was a lot of fun.
"After practice we met with Coach Carroll for about 30 minutes and he had some very complimentary things to say about Jake and would love for him to come to their Rising Stars camp in June.
"Last night, Jake spoke with the coaching staff at Washington State and they offered him. We will be visiting Oregon and Oregon State this Saturday and Monday respectively. Jake is also excited about the NIKE Camp at Stanford. Our family and especially Jake are looking forward to competing there with the other guys that will be there."
