NorCal picks up first Pac-10 offer

Offensive lineman Matt Summers-Gavin (6-5, 271, 5.1) from San Francisco (Calif.) St. Ignatius College Prep has picked up his third offer of the season and his first from the Pac-10.
"I received my first offer from the Pac-10," Summers-Gavin said. "Arizona State watched my filmed and sent an email saying an offer has been sent."
"That's my third offer overall with Nebraska and Georgia," Summers-Gavin said. "Al Simmons is the coach recruiting me from Arizona State and the one who let me know they offered."
"Distance is definitely not a factor," Summers-Gavin said. "I just want to go to the school that is best for me."
The scouting report on Summers-Gavin is that he has the size and frame that the D-I school covet. He's also very aggressive and physical as he had approximately 100 pancake blocks as a junior.
Summers-Gavin has an excellent first step and has pretty good technique. He is currently working on staying lower on blocks and the only negative at this time is he plays high, but when he does that it is rare.
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."
