Intro 2011: DT Mustafa Jalil

San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral Catholic defensive tackle Mustafa Jalil has a pair of offers and the junior-to-be has plenty more schools that are showing interest in him, including the Los Angeles' schools...

On a team that featured eventual California State Player of the Year, Tyler Gaffney, San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral Catholic defensive tackle Mustafa Jalil made his presence known on the other side of the ball.

The 2011 prospect served notice in the final game of the season, in which Cathedral won the California D-II State Championship, when he harassed the Stockton (Calif.) St. Mary's offensive line and constantly pressured Oregon State-signee Cody Vaz.

Jalil eventually was named to the GoldenStatePreps.com SuperSophomore Team, one of 15 sophomores in the state selected.

Now, Jalil is boasting a pair of offers, both from Pac-10 schools.

"My head coach told me I have offers from Arizona State and Washington," said Jalil. "And I've been talking to USC and UCLA lately too."

Jalil has a solid list of other schools he's interested in as well.

"I like Miami, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Clemson, Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia and Virginia Tech too," said Jalil. Jalil stands 6-4, 300, and plays nose tackle primarily for Cathedral, but this year, offense will be on tap for him.

"As of right now, I've been hearing just about playing defensive tackle, but I can also play left tackle or right tackle on offense, which I'm probably going to do next year," said Jalil.

Jalil is in no rush to make a decision, what with a year and half before he can sign a letter-of-intent.

He's coming off a decorated sophomore year, which included the state title and SuperSophomore selection, and he was also selected to the All-American Sophomore Team, All-North County Team, All-Eastern League and San Diego Hall of Champions Team.

During his sophomore year, he had 50 tackles, 20 for loss, 10 sacks and five forced fumbles.
