The other player who is getting recruiting attention from Sylmar, Calif., is quarterback/safety John Austin (6-0, 180, 4.6). As outstanding as C.J. Gable was for Sylmar, Austin may get the team's MVP.
"Everybody knows we have C.J., but John is had a MVP type season," Sylmar coach London Woodfin said. "We wouldn't have been as good without him."
"Oregon called last week," Woodfin said. "They're recruiting him but they have a couple guys ahead on their chart, but if they fall through the Ducks could go on him."
"Idaho State and Montana State are recruiting John real hard," Woodfin said. "Idaho State are coming back for the second week in row."
"It's a mystery to me why John is flying under the radar," Woodfin said. "He has size, he's rangy and he's very athletic."
"It is a good thing that his recruitment has begun to pick up," Woodfin said. "Someone going to get a very good player."
Austin had an outstanding senior season on both sides of the ball. As a quarterback, Austin threw for 1,493 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also rushed for 345 yards and had six rushing touchdowns.
On defense, Austin racked up 33 tackles and had five interceptions.
