Four-star offensive lineman Alex Crosthwaite (6-5, 298, 5.1) from San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral Catholic picked up a huge offer last week from another Pac 10 school. He now has offers from seven D-I colleges, four of which are from Pac 10 schools. With the amount of schools checking him out this spring, there is reason to believe, he will have more offers before the spring evaluation period is over.
The latest Pac 10 offer came from Cal and needless to say Crosthwaite is very excited about his latest offer.
"My Cal offer feels real good," Crosthwaite said. "I really like Cal and I'm real excited about the offer. They are probably in my top five.
"Oregon's and UCLA's offensive line coaches are coming to watch me practice during spring ball."
Crosthwaite attended the recent NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto, Calif., and gutted the camp out though he wasn't 100 percent.
"The NIKE Camp was good, but I didn't feel or do too good because I got the flue the night before," Crosthwaite said. "So after the Nike Camp, I got the flu got real bad."
"I didn't go to school until Thursday," Crosthwaite said. "I ended up missing a couple a schools that came to watch me practice, including USC. I'm better I practiced but I felt weak and like I got tired real quick but I'm getting better."
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com, Cathedral Catholic coach Sean Doyle had the following to say about his offensive line prospect.
"Alex is technically sound at both, run and pass blocking," Doyle said. "He is on par with all the great ones I have coached."
Crosthwaite was outstanding as a junior, earning all-state, first-team all-league and second-team San Diego Section all-CIF for his performance on a state championship team.
Crosthwaite earned a spot on the Rivals.com preseason Rivals250 team for the class of 2010.
