Tadman Can Do it All

<P>The second prospect from the Mission Viejo duo is Marty Tadman. Tadman played quarterback, safety, wide receiver, cornerback, tailback and also returned kicks for his team last year. The 6-0, 182-pound prospect ran a 4.56 at the Nike Camp but says he will run a better time at the Stanford Nike Camp this Saturday. </P>

Marty Tadman had quite a junior season. "I played a lot of positions," said Tadman. "Our quarterback got hurt so I played a lot there." Tadman wasn't certain on his stats but he knew he threw for 750 yards and 12 touchdowns. He rushed for 500 yards and six touchdowns. He also caught two touchdowns, had three defensive touchdowns, a punt return for a touchdown and seven interceptions.

Tadman doesn't have any offers yet. "None yet, UNLV, USC, UCLA, Washington, Washington State, San Diego State and Colorado State have stopped by my school. I am getting a lot of letters from the PAC 10 schools and Nebraska."

Tadman is also a great student. "I have a 3.5 in my core GPA and I just took the test last weekend."

Besides the Stanford Nike Camp, Tadman also plans to camp at a few schools as well. "I am going to the USC and Colorado camp. I might attend one more but I am not sure where yet."

Tadman would like to make an early decision. "I would like to make my decision sometime in the summer. If I find the right school I will. If I am happy and confident in my choice I will commit."

Notre Dame is a school he is very interested in but they haven't shown much interest yet. "It's my dream school. I've watched them since I was little. I have the sweatshirts, hats, I love them. They haven't sent me much stuff yet. I am very interested and I am hoping to get more interest from them."

Comments. Tadman is a carbon copy of Jed Collins. I didn't ask but I bet these two are the best of friends. This is another kid I would hate to play against. Their coach must be thrilled to coach these two. I am not sure how interested the Irish are in either but I bet they can get both to camp to evaluate them. I would at least take a look at these two because these are the type of kids that become leaders on your team.
