Gig Harbor HS TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Gig Harbor, WA) is a 2011 prospect that has racked up thirteen offers prior to his junior season. The offers include programs from coast to coast and it's safe to say he will be one of the top prospects in the 2011 class. "I have offers from Washington, Washington State, Boise State, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal, Stanford, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Florida," he said.

Boise State became Austin's eighth offer just a few months ago. "They came to my school and Coach (Justin) Wilcox talked to my coach," he said. "He said they wanted to throw their name in the hat. I was excited that they offered me early," he added.

Defensive Coordinator Justin Wilcox has recruited both the State of Oregon and the State of Washington with loads of success the past few years. Boise State fans hope he can work some of his magic yet again. "I called Coach Wilcox and told him I appreciate the offer," Seferian-Jenkins said. "He's a fun guy. He's really honest and Boise State is a great program. They aren't in the biggest conference in the world but they play a lot of those teams and beat them."

The TE is one of the most important positions in the Bronco offense. That certainly hasn't gone unnoticed by the 2011 standout. "I like how they put guys in the pros and I want to play in the pros. I like the field and atmosphere too."

Seferian-Jenkins (6'7, 245, 4.8) hopes to form a solid top ten in December. "I'll have a top ten in December and have a decision by spring ball," he said. "It'll be Signing Day on my senior season if it's not by spring ball." Austin will take all five official visits if he does not come to a decision by spring.

Last season, Gig Harbor finished with a solid 9-2 record and the Tides hope to take that next step in 2009. The goal for Seferian-Jenkins and his teammates is the same goal of every HS team. "Win state," he said. "That's my only goal."

The Tides open the season on September 4th as they will travel to Olympia. "We play Olympia at Olympia," he said. "They are a great team and real strong. They lost a lot of guys. It was a senior dominant league last year and a focus on juniors this year," he added.
