"So far, it's been Boise State and Washington State who've offered me," said Zumwalt. "I'm going up to check out Arizona State for an unofficial visit and I just went to UCLA's practice (Saturday). I'm talking to Oregon State too and I'm going up there in a month. Mainly, I'm just getting a bunch of letters from them."
Zumwalt has the size that he eventually grow into a defensive end, but he's adamant about staying at linebacker.
"Linebacker, everyone so far is saying linebacker," said Zumwalt. "I like middle but I'll play anywhere. I just like to play linebacker. I play tight end and receiver but I love defense."
Zumwalt was heading to Tempe this week to visit Arizona State, a school that's been showing a lot of interest in him. He took an unofficial to UCLA over the weekend.
"UCLA was a blast," said Zumwalt. "I thought it was really fun. The school looks pretty cool. I played with Nick (Crissman) and we're good friends with the family."
Boise State, meanwhile, is one of the schools who've offered him, with current Bronco Hunter White a former Charger and the son of head coach Dave White.
"I'm trying to get time to go up to Boise and visit the school, but I've known a lot about them since I was a freshman," said Zumwalt.
Washington State started the process out by offering Zumwalt early on.
"Washington State was the first school to offer me and I was pretty excited," said Zumwalt. "It was pretty awesome. Boise State came after that.
Zumwalt isn't in a rush to make a decision, wanting to go through the process before deciding on a school.
"I'm just keeping all of my options open, I still have like another year until I can sign," said Zumwalt. "I want to make sure I make the right one because this will be a big choice. I'm just taking my time. I want to play the Pac-10. Whatever school gives me that option, my goal in life is to play the Pac-10."
Zumwalt said he'd look at some key factors before deciding where he'll sign.
"Playing time, how well I fit in, the coaches, the surroundings and most importantly, the academics," said Zumwalt.
In describing his play, Zumwalt noted the physical nature of his game.
"I love to hit, so I like to blow people up," said Zumwalt. "I'd like to say I'm pretty fast. I can move a lot better than linemen so I'm a combination of both.
Zumwalt will take in at least two camps, Oregon State and the Nike Camp in Los Angeles.
Academically, he has a 3.3 GPA and will take the SAT this spring.
