Kentridge prospect hears from Levy

WSU OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR Mike Levenseller was busy driving 'em high and far at the King County Cougar Golf Classic on Wednesday, but that didn't stop him from fitting in a little recruiting work between holes. One of the state's intriguing prospects -- a QB tailor made to play college wideout -- was on the receiving end of a phone call from Levenseller talking about the Cougars' summer camp.

Brandon Turner of Kentridge is is penciled in as the Chargers' starting quarterback but is most-definitely a wideout or safety at the next level.

"Washington, Washington State and UNLV have all said they like me a lot and want to see me in person," Turner said. "Coach (Mike) Levenseller called me just yesterday (Wednesday) and left a message for me.

"He basically said they would love to have me out to their camp and get a good look at me and that they like me a lot. Coach Cink (Kris Cinkovich) from UNLV is great coach and he's really made an effort to bond with me and get to know me. I really feel comfortable with him."

Turner said UW has also made contact as well.

"Coach (Tyrone) Willingham and I have talked and the Huskies are definitely a school I'm interested in. One of my friend's (Nate Williams) is going there and they are very close to home. I'm going to go to camp there as well." In addition to the Husky and Cougar camps, Turner plans to take in the Oregon half-day camp following the Nike Combine being held in Eugene on June 8th. He took part in the Barton Showcase a couple of weeks back.

Turner said, no matter who offers, he won't be jumping at the first school to offer, but he will definitely have his eyes opened to who wants him most.

"I want to wait on things no matter when I get offered," Turner said. "I'd like to take a couple of visits too and just see what is out there and whether I really fit in to the team and the program. I'm not in a huge hurry, but I'm anxious to get some offers."

ELSEWHERE ON THE recruiting trail, Spokane receiver Jared Karstetter (Ferris) says he has offers from UNLV, Air Force and Eastern Washington, but several other schools have let it be known they have quite a bit of interest as well.

"Arizona State, Idaho, Boise State, Oregon State and Cal are the main schools recruiting me," Karstetter said. "Washington and Washington State also came by last month and I like them both too because they're the state schools."

Karstetter took an unofficial visit to Washington before their spring game.

Karstetter plans to camp at Arizona State, Oregon State and Oregon this month and said he may hit a day of the Washington State camp as well.

O'DEA DB Johri Fogerson is plannng to attend the Nike Camp, the Combine and Oregon's half-day camp, and his team will be camping at Washington State. He also may attend the Washington camp for a day.

"Boise State, Idaho, Oregon State, Cal and Washington have all been recruiting me pretty hard," he said. "Coach (Chris) Tormey (UW) said he likes me as a running back or a free safety and pretty much everyone likes me at free safety. I break on the ball pretty well and this spring I ran a 4.46 so I feel like I have the speed to really do well next year and then when I compete at the next level." Free safety is where he'd like to play.
