The next Clay Walker?

Mike Pollak is a 6-4, 275-pound lineman prospect from Chandler (Arizona) Corona Del Sol, and Pollak has the same size and frame as another lineman from the land of the sun - Washington signee Clayton Walker. Does he like the Dawgs as much as Walker does? There certainly seems to be interest on the Huskies' side of things.

"Some schools are recruiting me as a guard, others for both sides," Pollak told "Recently, Arizona State, Washington and Vanderbilt are showing the most attention. They seem to be sending letters every day."

So what makes Mike a special lineman? "I think it's the quickness I have, especially because of how big I am," he said. He runs a 4.9 40, benches 300 pounds and jumps 25 inches in the vertical leap. He is a all-conference and all-region performer on offense and a second-team all-conference and all-region pick on defense. "There's a rule they can't put a player on the first team on both sides," Pollak said.

Offers have come from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington and Vanderbilt, with possible offers from Cal, Colorado State, Oregon and Stanford looming on the horizon.

"Washington and Arizona State are my top two schools," Mike said. "I went to ASU's camp and I met their offensive line coach. I like him. I also talked to Coach (Rick) Neuheisel in May and I feel like Washington would be a real comfortable place for me to go to."

Pollak plans on taking official visits before determining anything. "I will wait and take my trips, make sure I make the right decision for me," he said. "I'll be taking trips to Washington and Vanderbilt for sure, just because of all the attention they've shown me." Top Stories
