Gable is widely considered one of the top all-around prospects in the west coast class of 2005.

"I can make a play out of nothing," says Gable. "I can make something little turn into something big. I never give up. Even if our team is down by 50 points I am still going to play hard. I am a leader."

The running back/safety/corner prospect is currently sporting five written offers. "I've been offered by USC, Nebraska, UCLA, Mississippi, and Colorado."

Only two of these five translate to his top list. "My top five are USC, Miami, Oklahoma, LSU, and UCLA. My favorites are USC and Miami.

"I like how USC runs their offense and they will take their running backs and split them out wide at receiver. They create different situations for them to be weapons in the offese."

'SC is giving him the option to play at different spots. "The coaches told me that I could play running back, safety or cornerback for them. It does not matter to me where I play. I like offense and defense the same."

Gable will be attending the Trojans' Junior Day, April 3rd. He was set to visit UCLA's recently, but couldn't make it. "My mom had to work so I didn't have a ride."

He explains his interest in the Bruins. "I like how they pound the ball and then go to the air. They give their backs a lot of carries."

Running Backs Coach/Recruiting Coordinator Eric Bieniemy is after him for UCLA.

He will be attending the UCLA Adidas Camp this summer.

Gable carries a 3.0 core GPA and is scheduling his tests soon. He would like to major in Architecture.
