Rivals.com recently introduced you to athlete prospect Max Gama (6-1, 195, 4.6) from La Mirada, Calif. Just a reminder, Gama is a two-way standout who played running back, wide receiver safety and linebacker. Gama picked up his first offer today.
"I am just excited to get my first offer," Gama said. "Washington State is a Pac 10 school and I'm just lucky and feel very excited. They want me to play safety.
Washington State was the first team out of the box with an offer, but undoubtedly not the last.
"Wake Forest, Notre Dame, UCLA, Vanderbilt, and Nebraska, are the schools that I am talking to," Gama said. "I'm going to UCLA on Thursday with my teammates (Isaac Luatua and Bryan Peters) and my coach (former CU quarterback Mike Moschetti)."
Gama is not one to rest on his laurels, he is planning on attending the NIKE Camp coming in Los Angeles next month and he has plans for improvement this offseason.
"I just want to get bigger and get my speed up," Gama said. "I am working really hard right now. I am doing track. I have another year with Coach Moschetti so I think he will teach me a lot more stuff.
What is Gama looking for in a college?
"I am open to location," Gama said. "I just really want to get a degree from a good school and I think Washington State is a good school. I like the west coast area, but I am open to all schools."
There are very good reasons why schools are looking at the versatile Gama. He earned first-team all-CIF and first-team all-league as a linebacker after racking up 81 tackles, four pass deflections, one sack, one fumble caused and one interception.
As an offensive player, Gama accounted for 701 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. While playing wide receiver, Gama hauled in 25 receptions for 331 yards and scored one receiving touchdown.
