An offensive lineman we really liked on film just received his first scholarship offer and we're pretty confident it won't be his last. Matt Summers-Gavin, 6-5, 275 pounds from San Francisco (Calif.) St. Ignatius is hearing from schools all over the country and received the offer from a Big 12 power.
"Nebraska told my coach that an offer has been sent in the mail for me," Summers-Gavin said. "I'm very excited about it, it's always good to get that first one under your belt. It was really unexpected because I had just sent them my DVD not too long ago.
"From there, I got a few letters and then my coach said he talked to Coach Wagner and they're offering me as a center. I play tackle so center would be quite a change but I'm definitely open to it. My motto has always been whatever is best for the team I'll do and that means playing center, that's fine with me.
"I really don't know a lot about Nebraska to be honest but I'm definitely going to look in to them heavily. I know they have great tradition but I don't much else but I'm very interested."
Summers-Gavin shows good explosiveness on film and is a very physical player. We can see where center could be a very good position for him in college because of how quick he gets off the ball. He's strong, finishes his blocks and is one of those players who likes to play through the whistle, meaning even if the play is over and he's engaged with his man, he's still blocking him down the field trying to drive him in to the ground.
Most of the Pac 10 is showing attention and the lineman said he's also receiving letters from Florida, Miami, Wisconsin, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh and Hawaii. Along with the Huskers, he mentioned Arizona State, Miami, Washington, USC and Oregon as schools he's seriously looking at.
