VIDEO: Center of Attention

BERKELEY -- Nigel Center is drawing some major Pac-12 interest, and showed why this weekend, with physical play over the course of a three-day Cal full-contact camp.



BERKELEY -- A transfer may be in the works for current American Canyon (Calif.) defensive back Nigel Center, but for the moment, he's focused on learning as much as he can as a cornerback, which is what brought him to California's three-day full-contact camp this past weekend.

What did he learn most this weekend from the Cal staff, and current players?

"A lot of things – hip work, footwork, the mental aspect, watching the quarterback, watching his hips and paying attention," Center said.

Accompanying Center on Friday was four-star Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill cornerback Isaiah Langley, who's known Center since the latter was about six-years old.

"I've known him for a long time now," said Center, who's been drawing quite a bit of Pac-12 interest. "I've just got to keep working. He made a drastic change, and just learning about him, it's pretty cool and crazy how much he changed. I've just got to keep working as hard as he does."

Arizona State, Arizona, the Bears, USC, Washington State and Utah have all been talking to the 2016 prospect, who also played some wide receiver this past weekend. At 6-foot-2, 196, though, every team is looking at him as a tall cornerback, he said.

"I really don't have a dream school. Any school that will pick me up, really," Center said.
