Casey Estrada Sports Two Offers

After breaking his wrist shortly before his senior season of high school, current Sacramento CC OT Casey Estrada (6-5, 280) didn't get any looks from 4-year schools so he decided to ply his wares in the JC ranks and that decision has paid off with two scholarship offers.

"I got offered by Akron back in October and Wyoming just offered me (Monday)," Estrada told  "I'm visiting Akron on December 1st and Wyoming on December 8th."

Estrada was a full-qualifier out of Folsom High School in California and headed to Sac City because he really liked the coaching staff and the system they run. 

"It's only 30 minutes from where I grew up so that was big, but they have a good program and they were really welcoming to me," Estrada noted.

Estrada played in every game of his two seasons with Panthers and started every game at weakside tackle this past season.

"I can play inside or outside, but I've played tackle my whole career," Estrada said.  "I have real good speed and feet and the coaches tell me that I'm good at getting to the second level on my blocks.

"I'm probably a better pass-blocker right now, but I think I do both pretty well."

Estrada reps 225 pounds 15 times and he knows he needs to increase his strength to play at the next level so he isn't opposed to redshirting if the coaching staff he commits to decides that is what is best for him.

"I'll go wherever I have a chance to play," Estrada said.  "I don't need to stay close to home, but that would be great too."

Temple, along with Wyoming and Akron, has gotten involved with Estrada and recently requested film and made contact by phone.

"I'm basically looking for a good atmosphere and a staff that can help me get better," Estrada said.  "I like the systems that (Wyoming and Akron) run so I think I can fit in well there.  Mainly it will come down to atmosphere and the staff."

Estrada will enroll wherever he ends up committing to in January and he will have three years to play two.  He plans to major in business.
