Nevada D-Tackle is Open to CU

Colorado NEEDS defensive tackles. What else is new? It seems as if it has been impossible for the CU staff to land prototypical defensive tackles from the high school ranks for many years now. Top defensive lineman are the main thing that separate the elite handful of teams in the nation from the rest. It is not from a lack of effort. The CU staff has offered many top d-tackles, they just can't seem to bring them in. Nevada stud Jerzy Siewierski has a CU offer and is looking at the Buffs.

Jerzy Siewierski has written offers from Colorado, Colorado State, UCLA, Washington State, Fresno State, Wisconsin, BYU, Boise State, Oklahoma State, Nevada, UNLV, Purdue, Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona, and Arizona State.

On the year thus far, he has 17 tackles in two games. "I have a motor that never stops," he says. "Coaches also tell me that I am good with my hands. I don't just bull-rush, I use my hands a lot."

Siewierski is not originally from Nevada as he grew up in the Northern California Bay Area. He arrived at Reed HS his freshman year. "It would be nice to go back to California. I am looking to stay kind of close because I have a single mom and I have two sisters that are five and nine. I want to help out with them."

Since the beginning of the month, the d-tackle says that he has received calls from all the schools that have offered him. One of those schools was UCLA, and he says the Bruins are recruiting the hardest. "UCLA is probably my favorite. I also like Oklahoma State, Boise State, Oregon and Oregon State. But really, I am still open to these other schools."

Coach Inge recently called him for the Buffs. "He told me that they have some guys leaving and that they can offer early playing time. I am looking into them."

Siewierski has no visits scheduled. "I'll start setting those up soon."

He carries a 3.0 core GPA and scored a 20 on the ACT and a 1587 on the new version of the SAT. The big man is undecided on a major.

Reed takes on Monague, this Friday.
