Van Dyke could be special

Alex Van Dyke has the size, the skills and the pedigree to be something special and that's why Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks coach Ryan Gomes raves about the 2014 wide receiver.
Van Dyke is a 6-foot-4, 200-pound prospect who's father by the same name was an All-American receiver at Sacramento City College and Nevada before pursuing an NFL career.
The 2014 standout already has an offer from Cal and many other major programs are showing early interest.
It's really coming in from everywhere, Gomes said, with the entire Pac-12 along with Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Florida and others in the mix.
"He's a freak," Gomes said.
"He had three touchdowns the last two games. He has the official offer from Cal and Notre Dame, Florida, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Tennessee and many others are coming in on him.
"He's 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds and he runs like a deer. He has his dad's expertise leading him on. He's just starting to scratch his potential because he's a three-sport kid so we don't get him a lot in the off-season. He's just really starting to learn how to play the position."
That might be the most exciting aspect of Van Dyke's game - that he still hasn't reached his full potential. He's also a track and basketball star and Gomes said he's just an overall outstanding athlete.
"He's going to be something special," Gomes said.
