NorCal campus is D-I hot spot

It is readily apparent that Matt Summers-Gavin (6-5, 271, 5.1) from San Francisco (Calif.) St. Ignatius College Prep in one of the west coast's best offensive tackle prospects. He six offers from schools on the table and interest from schools from coast-to-coast.
"Last Monday (May 8th), Cal, USC, Nebraska, UNLV, and Utah came by the school," Summers-Gavin said. "Oklahoma came last Friday (May 5th)."
"Colorado came by yesterday," Summers-Gavin said. "Then I received a call from Colorado and they offered me a scholarship."
"I now have six offers along with Nebraska, Georgia, Cal, Arizona State, and Washington," Summers-Gavin said. "I don't think I'll be attending the combine this Saturday. I'll most likely be pretty late to the event because of a track meet."
"Spring ball for me starts next week and I know there will be a bunch of schools stopping by to check me out," Summers-Gavin said. "I'm pretty excited."
Boise State and Miami were also by the school last week. Other schools that are planning to come the school in the very future are Oregon, Arizona State, Boston College, Georgia, and Notre Dame.
Summers-Gavin has the size and frame that the D-I school are looking for. He's also very aggressive and physical as he had approximately 100 pancake blocks as a junior. He also has an excellent first step and has pretty good technique.
As a junior Summers-Gavin earned first-team all-league honors. He was one, of only two underclassmen honored. He also was an all-city selection. He was a participant in the US Army All-American National Combine in San Antonio recently and it was there that he measured 6-foot-4 and half. He also recorded a 4.5 shuttle and had a 26-inch vertical. He has recorded 22 reps of 185 pounds on the bench and a 435-pound squat.
In an earlier interview with St. Ignatius coach Steve Bluford he had the following thing to say about Summers-Gavin.
"Matt is tough, physical, strong and quick. He's our best offensive lineman and is a two-year starter."
"Matt was selected first-team all-league because of his physical play and athleticism," Bluford said. "Plus he's a great kid and a pleasure to coach."
