Pac-12 leader for Rudinski

Last week was special for Eddie Rudinski. The offers started pouring in and the Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian linebacker can thank some morning workouts for all the attention.
"It's been a really good week," Rudinski said.
"We have these early morning workouts at like 6 a.m. and coach (Bill) Redell insists these coaches come out and watch because we do a lot of agility work and they get to see us move. They would come out and see me and then come later that day to watch practice.
"It started off with some recruiters and they liked me and then the position coach would come down and then they would talk to the head coach and then the coach would call and offer a scholarship."
So far, the three-star linebacker has been offered by Washington, Colorado, Nevada, San Jose State and Montana State.
The two Pac-12 offers definitely stand out most to the Oaks Christian standout.
"I definitely like Washington and Colorado right now," Rudinski said. "I'd like to stay in the Pac-12. It's always been a dream of mine since I was young. The top school right now is Washington.
"Academically, they fit what I'm looking for. They were the first Pac-12 school to offer me. What they said is they don't care about the stars. They could see I'm a natural athlete and they want me to think purple and gold. I just admire that about them."
Rudinski likes Washington the most but he plans to wait a little longer to make his commitment. Duke, Vanderbilt, Arizona, Arizona State and Oregon State are showing more interest so the three-star doesn't want to rush a decision especially since things have just picked up in his recruitment.
"I'll probably sit back and wait a little bit," Rudinski said.
"I wouldn't be surprised if those offers came soon. I just have to keep doing my thing and see what happens."
