Five-star QB receives Crimson Tide offer
"He offered me," Jake Heaps said. "I'm pretty excited about it, to be honest. They run a pro-style offense; they've been very successful under Nick Saban. He's a great guy. He really cares about the players and has a lot of great things set up for them."
"He was very, very impressed with me on film and loved how I threw the ball and handled everything and how the ball came out of my hand and my quick release. It was very weird, because he was very excited to talk to me, and I was like, 'I'm very excited to talk to you!'
Will this newest offer - Heaps' 23rd to date - affect his decision timeline?
"I don't think it will," he said. "I just have to do as much homework as I can and get to know the Alabama coaches and get a good feel for the program."
"(Saban) is very excited about the opportunity to gain a relationship with me and possibly get me down there to their university. It was a great conversation, and I was very excited to talk to him."
Heaps is intrigued, to say the least, to see how things with the Crimson Tide affects his current top-10.
With things the way they are economically, Heaps noted that it's probably going to be tough to take a lot of visits to schools so far away from the northwest, and the family just unofficially visited Tennessee in the past few weeks. "We'll try and figure something out," he added.
Jake and his family are headed out this weekend to the Beehive State - his older sister Brittany lives in Orem. Orem is just a hop, skip and a step from the BYU football offices in Provo.
"Right now I'm just going down to see my sister, really," Heaps said. "I miss her. We're going down to take a family visit."
"But I'm right there, so I might as well stop by and say Hi, so why not?" he added, noting that the chances of visiting the Cougars are 'likely'.
Other than the family trip, Heaps said that right now he just plans on continuing his workout regimen and catching a few spring practices at Washington.
