Nick Santa plays for one of the top programs in the Pacific Northwest and now the Bellevue, Wash., defensive end is hoping for more recruiting attention.
So far, Washington, Washington State, BYU and Eastern Washington are showing interest in the 6-foot-3, 230-pound prospect in the 2013 class who recently worked out at the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio.
Santa, who helped lead Bellevue to a 14-0 record this past season, said he realizes things are still early in his recruitment but he's looking to gain more exposure in the coming months.
"Things will hopefully pick up after this weightlifting season so I'm looking forward to that," Santa said.
"I'm going to work hard in the offseason and I'm going to as many camps as I can. I've already gotten some great exposure and I'm going to do my best."
Santa plans to attend numerous camps leading into his senior season which could definitely help him land some offers.
At this point in his recruitment, it's still too early to gauge which schools stand out the most but the in-state schools are looking good for him.
"It's still sort of early," Santa said.
After such an incredible season where Santa's team defeated powerhouses like Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian, Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline and others, Bellevue could be in for another long run next season.
Santa, athlete Myles Jack, linebacker Sean Constantine and others are standouts in next year's class.
