Offers Rolling In

The fastest player at the Nike Camp in Los Angeles and one of the quickest on the West Coast is Corona (Calif.) Centennial wide receiver Ray Bass. The talented athlete has seen his stock rise dramatically in the past few months and has scholarship offers coming in from all over.

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 ever had here."

Bass clocked a 4.31 in the 40 at the SoCal Nike Camp, which was the fastest of the day. His vertical jump of 40.4 inches was not only the best of the day but the second best at any camp we tested during the entire Nike tour. Bass worked out with the receivers at the camp but is getting a lot of looks for his work in the secondary as well. He played mostly cornerback as a junior but missed half the season with various injuries.

"He's 100% now and looks great," Coach Logan said. "Recruiting has really picked up for him. He has offers from Cal, Hawaii, Idaho, Fresno State, Colorado State, Colorado, Arizona, Oregon and Wyoming. I know USC is very interested as well but I'm not sure if they offered."

Bass liked Fresno State early on and then Cal took over the top spot. According to Coach Logan, his athlete has had a handful of schools high on list and will likely go back and forth multiple times.

"Mike is at Hawaii so I know he likes them," Logan said. "USC, Cal, Fresno State, Colorado State and Oregon are a few others he has mentioned to me. He hasn't set up any of his trips yet but when he does, I think we'll have a better idea of where he's really leaning."
