It's shaping up to be a strong year for lineman in the Pacific Northwest and one player we're very high on is Bellevue (Wash.) offensive lineman David DeCastro. DeCastro is sitting on a host of offers and has a host of Pac 10 schools at the top of his board.
Bellevue has established themselves over the past few years as one of the elite programs in the West region. They finished 14-0 last season winning a state title and were ranked were ranked the No. 36 team in the nation in the Student Sports Fab 50 poll
DeCastro, 6-5, 285 pounds was a big reason for the Wolverines success earning 2nd team all-county honors last season and is one of the top true center prospects in the region. He's currently hearing from a host of schools but doesn't appear close to making a decision.
"I'm really not sure what I'm going to do right now," DeCastro said. "With the schools that are recruiting me right now, I just want to go through the process, take my time with my decision and just see what school fits me the best.
"I have offers from Washington State, Washington, Stanford and Oregon State," DeCastro said. "I've already been to Washington's Junior Day and may attend Junior Days at Stanford and Washington State as well.
"The schools that have offered are the ones I'm most interested but I really don't have a leader right now. My top five would be Washington, Stanford, USC, Washington State and Oregon. I'm going to the NIKE Camp at Oregon in June but I'm not sure about the rest of my summer camp plans right now.
"Education is big to me and will play a big role in my college choice. I'm also looking at location and where I'll be most comfortable over the next four or five years."
