Schools Are Coming After Tremblay

2017 American River DT Caleb Tremblay (6-5, 270) has seen his stock surge quite a bit over the last month with several offers rolling in over the past couple of weeks and he could see more once schools learn he will have four years to play three following the season...

"I have offers right now from New MexicoSan Diego StateCalSyracuse and UNLV," Tremblay told "San Diego State and New Mexico both offered me before the season and then Cal and Syracuse offered me after our fourth game and UNLV is my most recent offer.

"So far, those are the only schools that have really been talking to me, but my coaches have said just to be patient because more schools will start to come in once they see my film and after our season is over."

So far this season, Tremblay has played in five games and has totaled 16 tackles, two tackles-for-loss, one sack and one forced fumble while playing almost exclusively at defensive tackle for the Beavers.

"I basically had played just defensive end up until this season," Tremblay said. "All through high school, I was a defensive end, but once I got here, the coaches said they felt I was a natural fit at defensive tackle and I wanted to help my team any way that I could, so I moved to tackle and I've really sorta enjoyed it.

"I power clean 365, so I'm pretty explosive and I feel like I'm pretty strong and I use my hands pretty well.

"Another thing I think I do pretty well is use my technique and flip my hips and one thing that surprises people is how quick I am for a guy my size."

As a prep at Vintage High School in Napa, California, Tremblay strained the MCL in his right leg the week of his first game, so the recruiting interest fell off for him. Once he graduated he decided to take a year off and that gave him a different perspective and helped him realize how much he loved playing the game of football.

"One thing about me, I was pretty small when I graduated high school," Tremblay admitted. "I was just barely 200 pounds and no one was really after me, so I took a year off and worked out and just sorta got myself focused on things and what I wanted to do.

"I was able to put on a lot of size and strength and then when I started to look at places to play, my brother had gone to American River and I liked the coaches and the program here, so it just felt like the right place for me to be."

Tremblay was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he can leave immediately after the 2016 football season is complete and he will have four years to play three wherever he winds up.

We'll have more on Tremblay in the coming weeks as he gets closer to making a decision on where he will play in 2017.
