Pascarella Still On Bruins' Radar

Corona (Calif.) Centennial tackle Gavin Pascarella, who attended the UCLA-Stanford game, is still hearing from both of those schools and will also be taking an official visit to a WAC program next weekend...

Corona (Calif.) Centennial offensive lineman Gavin Pascarella (6-4, 245), is still standing on a half-dozen offers, while being in contact with a couple more schools, and he's also scheduled his first official visit.

"I still have the original six (Air Force, Army, Navy, Boise State , Nebraska and UTEP)," said Pascarella. "I talked to UCLA and Stanford about a week ago and I went to the UCLA-Stanford game. We took game film and they grabbed that from me."

Pascarella is scheduled to head out to Boise State next weekend.

"I'm taking a trip out to Boise next weekend on the 8th and then I have a visit set up for Harvard and the military academies in January," said Pascarella.

Pascarella is also hoping to set up a visit to Nebraska.

"I haven't made contact with them in a while so we haven't set one up yet, but I'm planning to," said Pascarella.

Meanwhile, the Cardinal and Bruins are staying in regular contact with Pascarella, and he's open to hearing more from them.

"Coach (Tim) Drevno from Stanford is recruiting me and Coach (Wayne) Moses is recruiting me from UCLA," said Pascarella. "Between the two, if Stanford were to offer, that would be the best possible scenario. I'd get an Ivy League education and be able to play for a good football program."

Playing at Centennial, one of the most loaded teams in the West, has enabled Pascarella to be seen by numerous coaches.

"Arizona State was there for Will Sutton, me and Arthur Burns," said Pascarella. "Fresno State was there, Washington State was there. It's been a while, but the guy from Northwestern was there."

Pascarella said he didn't have a standout favorite, but Boise State has definitely made a big impression.

"Boise State has been recruiting me the hardest, we'll see how it goes when I'm out there," said Pascarella.

Pascarella has been playing tackle for Centennial prior to this season, and that has been where he's been recruited at, but of late, he's been playing guard and center.

"But all the schools I've talked to, it's been for the tackle spot," said Pascarella.

One of the top student-athletes in the West, Pascarella is carrying a 4.5 and scored an 1820 on the SAT.
