Linebacker excited about offer

Linebacker Jake Woolley recently received his first major offer from Arizona. Read on for his thoughts on the offer, a timetable, and more.

College of the Canyons outside linebacker Jake Woolley recently received the first of what could be many Division 1 scholarship offers.

"Arizona is the only school to offer me," Woolley said. "I've talked with the Arizona coaches and they seem pretty cool. They like that I have more experience and that I can come in and play and be a leader right away.

"They said a player they were counting on just left and that they need more players to help the program."

In addition to Arizona, Woolley is hearing from a handful of others.

"I have other schools like Texas Tech, USC and Arkansas showing me interest, but Arizona is going after me the hardest," he said.

"It's a school that I would like to visit and just see what it's all about."

Besides narrowing down his school list, Woolley is looking to take his game to another level.

"I'm doing a lot this summer," Woolley said. "The main thing I'm going to work on this summer is my coverage and improving my strength. I'm doing a lot of running and quickness drills, so it's kind of hard to keep my weight up.

"I'm just trying to eat constantly and continue to work hard in the weight room."

In terms of a decision, Woolley is in no hurry to end his recruitment.

"I'm going to take my time," Woolley said. "I've seen a lot of players who have been in a rush to make a commitment only to decommit because they found a better fit. I don't want to do that.

"There are a lot of things that are important to me besides just football. I want to look at the school's academics and the school atmosphere. I want to look at all my options and come to a decision that I am completely comfortable with."
