Jake Densley has been soaking up the gridiron lessons. Learningd for him is no problem as he carries a 3.78 GPA and scored 24 on his ACT. Right now though he's thinking about football and awaiting his first offer.
Defensive line coach Michael Grey and and offensive line coach Steve Greatwood watched the team Densley was on several times during the camp and Gray called Densley a "tough player."
"I thought the campus was beautiful," said Densley of the University of Oregon. "I had a good time at camp."
Densley came to know Jonathan Solomon pretty well at the camp and while remembering names is a little hard (the guys used mostly nicknames among themselves) Densley remembers one big offensive lineman from Nevada that may have received an offer. There were 178 defensive linemen (all grade levels) at the Oregon camp this year.
At the Boise State camp, he was named defensive line MVP for the second straight year.
Densley has some pretty impressive statistics. He bench presses 335 pounds, squats 480 and power cleans 300 pounds. His team finished 10-1 last season before losing to Highland in the semi-finals of the state championship. Densley is also a wrestler, taking 4th in state in the heavyweight division.
Right now Jake lists Oregon State, Washington State, Oregon, Boise State and Arizona State as his favorites. He thinks the University of Idaho may offer him soon as there may be some re-organizing going on with the Vandals because of the coaching change.
