Pulsipher receiving recruiting visits

Quite a few college coaches have been down to Temecula High School in California over the past week to take a look at a prospect who plays on both the offensive and defensive lines. One of those schools was BYU.

Among the coaches that have stopped by Temecula High School to see Addison Pulsipher is a former Cougar coach.

"Coach Anae from Arizona came by the other day," said Pulsipher. "In fact, a couple coaches have come by. SDSU came by two weeks ago, [as did] Washington State, Boise State and USC. There should be some more schools coming by next week. When they're in the area they stop by to see me.

"I'm usually in my coach's class, social studies and U.S. history, when they come by and then I go talk to them. We also have another football player in the same class that comes in at around 6'6", 280 pounds."

One of the schools that will send someone to Temecula High School next week is BYU.

"BYU is coming next week on Thursday," said Pulsipher. "Coach Weber is coming down to our spring practice. I'm excited about that."

Needless to say, Pulsipher is getting excited about the amount of interest he's receiving.

"Yeah, I'm getting excited for next year and it should be a lot of fun," said Pulsipher. "With a lot of colleges, things are starting to pick up. They're coming out and talking to me, so I'm getting excited.

"Boise State, Washington State, USC and Arizona and all four of them sounded interested in me. They would tell me, ‘We need a tackle or a d-end.' I would tell them that I also long snap and they would say, ‘That's just a bonus.'"

Pulsipher, who comes in at 6 feet 6 inches and 260 pounds, plays both offensive tackle and defensive tackle, in addition to long snapper.

"I'm going to play left tackle and d-end this year," he said. "We're looking to run a 4-3 as well as a 3-5 defense this year. In the 4-3 I'll be more of a stand-up end."

Pulsipher's performance in the weight room is also very impressive.

"I've gained 45 pounds since last November," Pulsipher said. "I benched 275 pounds six times, which is a max of about 320 pounds. I clean 275, squat 425 and incline about 280. I spoke to Coach Kaufusi when he was down at a place called Prodigy, which is a workout place. I found out he was down there, so I went down there. He said, ‘The weight room found me.'"

A member of the LDS faith, Pulsipher has two brothers that will be attending BYU in the near future. One is linebacker recruit and Nike Camp MVP Adam Pulsipher. The other is quarterback Andrew Pulsipher, who served a mission to Guatemala.

"I'll be going out to BYU on June 12 to attend the invitations-only Junior Day on June 13," said Pulsipher. "I'll be going up there with my brother Andrew and he's going to school in the summer up there. It's kind of cool to be invited to that and then I'll be going to their camp the next week."
