Prior to last weekend's Stanford Elite 11 regional workout, Jake Rodrigues was known as one of the better quarterbacks on the West Coast. Following Friday night, the Rocklin (Calif.) Whitney prospect made it clear he's a hot commodity who could move way up the rankings.
"My day has been awesome," Rodrigues said after the workout.
"The atmosphere around here has been great. Competing against my boy Zach (Kline), (Connor) Brewer, everyone out here has just been fun. The competition and the coaching we got were amazing. I just got so much out of it and it was awesome."

In terms of recruiting, Rodrigues said he has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Colorado State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Utah and Washington. More could definitely be on the way.
He said Florida, Tennessee, USC and Washington State were showing interest but after word gets out about how well Rodrigues performed at the Elite 11 then many other top programs could get involved as well.
Rodrigues, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect, said he's still open to everything but plans to make his decision by July because he's an early enrollee and wants to be set for college before his senior year starts.
"I'm open to everything right now," Rodrigues said. "I'm not set on a school or a couple of schools. I'm still just taking in offers and looking at what everyone has to offer."
Rodrigues, who threw for about 2,000 yards, rushed for 1,000 and had 40 total touchdowns in his junior season, has already visited Washington. He's going to Oregon and USC this summer and could be ready to make his college choice soon after those trips.
It could be difficult, though, because Rodrigues has quickly become one of the hottest commodities on the West Coast and more colleges are sure to recruit him moving forward.
