RICHMOND, Calif. -- After a few early middling reps, Granite Bay (Calif.) offensive lineman Will Craig flipped the switch on Sunday at The Opening Regional at Richmond (Calif.) De Anza, and won his final two top-five reps to take home camp MVP honors for the offensive line.
"Just knew that there was going to be no off reps," Craig said. "That D-end was great, great player, but I just knew, the pressure, everyone was watching that last rep, I had to turn it up."

"I went not this weekend, but way back, I went with our running back/linebacker, Evan Tattersall, and they're interested in him too, I think," Craig said. "Definitely liked it. Definitely building a relationship with coach Greatwood. I really like him. Great guy. He actually coached Evan's dad, way back, at Oregon, so I knew him a little bit, even before he was at Cal, and he's such a great guy. Really low-key."
Relationships are a big factor for Craig, who said that the Ducks have been on him the hardest, as of late, particularly Mario Cristobal, who offered him.
"He's a great guy. Really knows his stuff. Really big on relationships," said Craig, who's hoping to make his decision before the start of the season, and then, he said, "shut it down."
"I'm pretty open right now, open to other offers," Craig said.
