Cali ATH Ray Bass Has Speed To Burn

The fastest player at the Nike Camp in Los Angeles was Corona (Calif.) Centennial wide receiver Ray Bass. Bass played only half the season last year due to injuries but showed at the camp that he's more than 100% recovered and is poised for a breakout senior season.

Bass is the younger brother of Uni. of Hawaii running back Mike Bass and according to Matt Logan, Centennial head coach, Ray is an even better prospect.

"He's a very gifted football player and should have a big year for us next year," Logan said. "He has great speed and is one of the most athletic players we've had here."

Bass clocked the day's fastest 40 time, a 4.31 in the 40 to go along with the days best vertical jump, 40.4 inches. In the wide receiver drills, he showed he's more than just a track guy as he caught every pass thrown his way and looked very fluid running his routes.

On film, Bass played predominately defensive back and looked very good. His speed obviously jumps out at you, but he's a very sure tackler and is not afraid to come up and support the run.

On the recruiting front, Bass said he's hearing from Fresno State, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Arizona State, Kansas, Washington State and Wisconsin.

"Fresno State is my favorite school followed by Hawaii, Oregon and Washington," Bass said. "I'm still pretty open though and I know there's a long way to go before Signing Day. I'm going to wait and just sit down with my parents and Coach Logan next year and take it from there."

Bass said he plans to camp with Fresno State and possibly Arizona State.
