Five offers and counting for Weaver

Having a corner you can put out on an island is a luxury that most schools crave, but Santa Rosa is lucky enough to have two. One, Diamond Weaver (5-10, 185), just hauled in his fifth offer on Tuesday and he could be close to some BCS offers as well. JCFootball.com caught up with Weaver recently and he updated us on things including which schools are showing him the most interest...

"Things are going really good for me and my team right now," Weaver told JCFootball.com. "I haven't had a lot of chances to make players, but that's because teams are throwing away from my side a lot."

Weaver had a solid freshman season for the Bear Cubs in 2007 and he's followed that up with an even better sophomore season, notching 30 tackles, six passes defensed and one interception.

On the recruiting front, heading into Tuesday, Weaver had four offers, but he had a fifth waiting for him when he got to school.

"Akron offered me so that makes five before my season is over," Weaver said happily. "Besides Akron, I have offers from San Diego State, Portland State, Sac State and Utah State and I have schools like Utah, Kansas and UCLA who have all told me they are close to offering me.

"USC talked to me today and they said they weren't planning on bringing in a JC corner this year, but after they saw me they said they might do it this year. They'll be at our game this weekend against City College (of San Francisco) to watch me and their old linebacker Josh Tatum who is at City, so this week is really important to me."

Even though he doesn't have an offer from the Jayhawks, he said Kansas is his number one school.

"Their DB coach (Je'Ney Jackson) is the one calling me for them," Weaver said. "All of the other schools send the coach who hands our region to talk and that's cool, but Kansas had their DB coach call me and that means a lot.

"The first time we talked, we talked for two hours and he calls me once a week and he tells me how much he likes me and the staff likes me, so they are the school that is my number one school right now."

At this point, Weaver doesn't have any visits scheduled and he said he will likely take all of five following the conclusion of his season, but he said he expects to visit Portland State, Sac State and Kansas in January.

Weaver is on pace to finish his AA in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
