Pac-10 leader for Rodgers

Washington is the favorite for Blake Rodgers and the Las Flores (Calif.) Tesoro inside linebacker said he could be closing in on making a commitment.
"I'm looking to make my decision in a couple months probably," Rodgers said Saturday at the Dana Point Air Strike Passing Tournament. "I want to wait it out over the summer to see what else happens."
It could happen sooner though. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound prospect is visiting Washington this weekend and said he's thinking about making his pledge to the Huskies if everything goes well.
He has the support of his family and said the Huskies are definitely standing out in his recruitment right now mainly because of the Washington coaching staff and how they use their linebackers. Coach Steve Sarkisian and defensive coordinator Nick Holt stand out the most.
"Washington is pretty much my No. 1 choice right now," Rodgers said. "I like coach Holt and coach Sarkisian and they have a good program. They let their linebackers blitz a lot and I like that so it seems like a good fit.
"It's a possibility I commit on the visit. My parents really like the school too so we'll see. It's going to be exciting. I'm looking forward to it. It seems like a pretty good school for me."
Arizona State, UCLA and USC are showing the most interest in Rodgers, who said he recently camped with the Bruins and is hoping for an offer.
If UCLA is going to offer a scholarship it's going to have to hurry because Rodgers is leaving for Washington this weekend and could be close committing.
The Tesoro standout said he might reconsider things if UCLA gets involved but that right now Washington is tops for him.
"(The UCLA coaches) said if I go to the camp they'd be pretty close to offering me but I don't know yet," Rodgers said.
"I called them a couple times so we'll see. UCLA would be pretty big but they're going to have to move fast because I'm looking to commit pretty soon."
