Early Trio Leads for Jack

The Bellevue (Wash.) linebacker, Myles Jack, talks about his early offers and national interest...

Bellevue (Wash.) outside linebacker Myles Jack was a big part of the Wolverines state title season in 2011, when they finished in the top 10 nationally by Scout.com.

One of two junior linebackers for the Wolverines with D-I offers, Jack teamed with Sean Constantine to form the top linebacker duo in the state.

Jack has three offers to date, from UCLA, Virginia and Washington, and expects more during the spring.

"Washington verbally offered me, and it came from Coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian) before the coaching changes and it still stands," said Jack. "UCLA offered me when Coach (Rick) Neuheisel was there, but then Coach (Jim) Mora told me I still have an offer from them. And Virginia offered me too."

Jack said a few more schools nationally are showing interest.

"I'm hearing from Wisconsin, Nebraska, mostly Midwest schools, but I'm originally from Georgia so I have some interest down there," said Jack. "If it comes from the ACC or SEC, I'll be interested. Same with the Pac-12 or Big Ten. I'm not tied to one area."

Jack measured in at 6-2, 215, at the U.S. Army Combine and said most schools like him as an outside linebacker, but could use him as a defensive end if he grows.

"Most schools like me as an outside linebacker, but I play some defensive end," said Jack. "I'll be more of a 3-4, hybrid type backer."

Jack said he plans to take some unofficial visits during the spring and may do some camps and combines in the spring and summer. But his main goal is to win another state title at Bellevue.

"I'll be back for us to win another state title," said Jack. "They never get old."
