PLEASANTON, Calif. -- Though J.J. Koski was held largely in check on Friday by USC-bound Isaiah Langley in a 40-28 loss to Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill, the Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley receiver still managed a team-high five catches for 30 yards, with three of those coming on the final drive of the night for the Wolves.
Last season, Koski hauled in a team-best 64 catches for a team-leading 1,003 yards, and this season, his recruitment is starting to heat up.
“A lot of Pac-12s, and a lot of schools from the Mountain West,” Koski told Scout.com on Friday. “All over the West Coast so far, so Cal, Washington, Washington State, Boise State.”
Koski – who’s seen several former Wolves move on to California in the recent past (including former Bears quarterback Zach Kline, long snapper John Shepardson and safety Patrick Worstell) – said that he “really like(s) Cal,” and that he “really love(s) UW” – Washington.
Cal has been talking with Koski “quite a bit.”
“They said they’ll see how the season goes, before they offer, so I’m trying to have a good season,” Koski said. “I’ve been talking with the receiver coach at Washington quite a bit, and I’m going to go up there for a visit pretty soon, so we’ll see what happens.”
Koski said he will visit Berkeley after the season.
So far, in three games, Koski has 20 catches for 204 yards and a team-high three receiving touchdowns. He currently has offers from Cal Poly and Montana.
