With his broken foot fully healed, Clovis (Calif.) linebacker Zack Follett (6-2, 230) is determined to have as productive a senior year as possible.

"I feel great now. I'm just trying to put last year behind me," said Follett. Last year, Follett was off to a stellar start, when in the fourth game of the season, he broke his foot. Though he had 50 tackles up to that point, he couldn't make it back on the field for the rest of the season because of the injury.

Once he realized his season was done, Follett turned his attention to preparing for his senior year and the camp circuit in the spring and summer.

"I just wanted to get focused, and do what I could to help the team. I wanted to go to the camps this year to see where I stood," said Follett.

Since then, he has received six scholarship offers, three from Pac-10 schools, but there are three other Pac-10 schools who have yet to offer that he has high praise for, including his leader.

"Oregon is definitely my top school. They haven't offered yet, but they said they wanted to see some more film. UCLA, Washington, Cal and Arizona are also in my top five."

The Bruins and Huskies have both offered him, in addition to Arizona State, Fresno State, Duke and UNLV. Cal and Arizona haven't offered yet, but could also be close.

Follett said he wouldn't commit if offered right away by Oregon, choosing to take some visits before making his decision.

He hasn't set a date for when he wants to make a commitment, wanting to hold out until he knows all of his options.

Follett has a 3.3 GPA and scored a 1030 on his SAT, qualifying him for college.
