Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison linebacker Jordan Zumwalt (6-4, 220) is at a half-dozen scholarship offers and, as more schools visit the Edison campus and secure his film, that number should keep rising.

"My offers right now are from Washington, Washington State, Arizona State, Stanford, Boise State and Colorado," said Zumwalt. "Boise State and Colorado have already come by the school and my coach said a lot more will be coming by."

Zumwalt said that the Los Angeles schools have been picking up their interest in him.

"I've been getting a lot of letters lately from UCLA, a lot of handwritten stuff. They've been showing a lot of interest lately," said Zumwalt. "And I might be going to USC's camp and they've been showing interest. I think I'll have to wait for their camps to get an offer, but it's alright because I'm just being patient."

The most recent offer for Zumwalt was from Stanford, and it was one that made a big impression on him.

"Stanford is obviously a really big scholarship offer because, well, Stanford is Stanford," said Zumwalt. "You get a Stanford degree, you're pretty set."

Arizona State also has made a big impression, with his parents both Arizona State alums. "I love Arizona State, I always have, and they've been recruiting me pretty hard," said Zumwalt. "I love the campus and the area."

Zumwalt said he's narrowing down his plans for the camp circuit and plans to hit a few of them. "I'm going to the UCLA and USC camps most likely and I'm pretty sure I'm going to Oregon State's camp," said Zumwalt.

Zumwalt said that schools want him at linebacker, but no one has specified which spot he'll play. "Everyone says I'm very versatile, that I could play outside or middle," said Zumwalt. "I'm ok at either spot."

Zumwalt isn't racing to make a decision, though. "I'm just going through the process, taking my time and enjoying it," said Zumwalt.

Zumwalt finished his junior season with 111 tackles, seven blocked punts, three sacks and two interceptions.

Academically, he has a 3.3 GPA and will take the SAT this spring.
