Orphey is one of the more versatile players in the Southland, playing both running back and defensive back, and he's eager to land his first offer.
"I'm getting a lot of early interest from Boise State and UCLA and I like USC and Washington, they're an up-and-coming program," said Orphey. "I like mostly Pac-10 schools. I'm hopefully getting some offers this month."
Boise State has long recruited well at Edison, and head coach Dave White's son, Hunter, is currently with the Broncos.
"I have a lot of interest in Boise State," said Orphey. "Coach White's son works out with us and he's telling me about the program and it's a great program."
UCLA is another school that has recruited Edison well, with recent signee Jordan Zumwalt the most recent Charger to ink with the Bruins, and a good friend of Orphey.
"Jordan and Luke Gane (a walk-on) are both going there and I like UCLA a lot," said Orphey. "I was invited to their spring practice."
The 6-1, 190-pound Orphey said he'd like to take some time in the recruiting process and see what his options are before he makes a decision.
The other decision will be what position he'll play in college.
"I want to play safety or running back, and I feel most comfortable at running back, but I'm playing corner this year, so there or safety will probably be where I play," said Orphey.
Last fall, Orphey had 58 receptions for 603 yards and eight touchdowns, caught 17 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown and had 45 tackles with six breakups defensively.
Academically, he has a 2.8 GPA with plans to take the SAT in the spring.
