Safety/Receiver Prospect Justin Pack

A solid performer both in the classroom and on the field, Villa Park WR/FS <b>Justin Pack</b> is getting interest from several schools on the West Coast, as well as some Ivy League schools.

One of Orange County's top returning players for 2004 is Villa Park (Calif.) High's Justin Pack, 6-1, 195.

A two-way standout, Pack is getting recruited by several schools as both a wide receiver and as a free safety.

Currently, he's hearing from Cal, UCLA, Washington, Oregon State, Washington State, UNLV, San Diego State and Colorado, plus all of the Ivy League schools are interested.

"Right now, I'd have to say my list is Cal number one, then UCLA, Oregon State, Washington and San Diego State," said Pack, who is still waiting for the first offer to come his way.

As a junior, Pack had 15 catches for 185 yards and 3 touchdowns, and on defense had 40 tackles, 4 interceptions and 8 pass deflections.

Pack attended the San Diego Nike Camp, and clocked a 4.8 forty, a 4.45 shuttle and jumped 26 inches in the vertical.

"I thought I did well there. I did better in the drills (working with the receivers) than I did in the testing."

This summer, he will keep himself occupied with a host of camps.

"I'll be at UCLA's 4-Day Camp, Colorado's 1-Day, Cal's 1-Day, San Diego State's 2-Day and then passing league for our school."

Pack would prefer to stay close to home and play Division I football, but if that didn't work out, he said the Ivy League schools are a "nice fallback option."

Pack has a 3.8 GPA and will take his SAT's in the fall.
