Two Pac-12 Schools Stick Out for Center

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Despite sparse playing time on Friday, Nigel Center still managed five tackles against Salesian, and is speaking frequently with several Pac-12 schools.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland (Calif.) McClymonds is stocked full of transfers this season, headed by former Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley quarterback Kevin Davidson -- who threw five TD passes in Friday night’s 32-22 win over Richmond (Calif.) Salesian – along with Javin White from Fairfield (Calif.) Vanden, and former American Canyon athlete Nigel Center.

Center attended several camps this summer, and said that there is “a lot” new on his end, since he decided to make the switch from cornerback to outside linebacker.

Oregon State, Washington State and Washington have been talking to me the most, and Cal,” said Center after the Warriors’ win on Friday. “I’m waiting on sending out my tape from the first five games.”

Substitution miscommunications limited Center’s play on Friday, though he still managed to make five tackles, including two on the Pride’s first offensive drive.

Washington has been speaking to Center very frequently, in the person of Bob Gregory, but so have the Golden Bears, in the person of recruiting coordinator Pierre Ingram, who saw Center at Cal’s camp back in June.

“They like my size and switching over to linebacker,” said Center, who’s now 6-foot-2, 200 pounds – a full 15 pounds heavier than he was this summer.
