DE Prospect Has Pac-10 List

The defensive end prospect from Washington, <b>Caeser Rayford</b>, says he's looking for a small town -- but has the Huskies and the Bruins in his final four. It's Seattle and L.A. vs Eugene and Pullman. Guess who he says there's an 80% chance he'll sign with?

"I'm very athletic and have great speed," says Spanaway Bethel (Wa.) DE Caesar Rayford. "I move good and people always refer to me as a Jevon Kearse."

Caesar favors Washington (offer, 1/9, 1.5 hours away, in-home 12/1) solid over Washington State, Oregon (offer, in-home 11/30) and UCLA (offer, 12/12, OL coach Mark Weber in-home 12/10).

"Washington was the first school to offer me. They have a great education and it's in the city. It's a great campus and they also have a great business school. I prefer a small town but it's a good place to get a job. There's an 80% chance I'll choose the Huskies but I still need to see them all in person.

"Washington State has been to my practice and have called but I'm not sure if they'll offer. They haven't talked about that at all.

"I like the area that Oregon is in. It's nice because it's a small town and everybody knows each other. It's a real nice campus and I have a friend who goes there (QB Johnny DuRocher).

"He says I should go there and it's cool to talk to someone who's gone through this.

"I haven't been down to UCLA but I hear they have a great business program. The football program is on-the-rise.

"I haven't decided if I'm going to try to also play basketball (F/C). I'm thinking about it and I may do both."

Rayford said he's in line to qualify, having a 3.5 GPA and scoring a 880 on the SAT.

Rayford's final senior season stats: 47 tackles/8 sacks/3 blocked FGs/2 BPs

Personal stats: BPs 270;SQs 400;VJ 39
