The state of Washington is loaded with talent from top to bottom this year with over 40 players…
Options Growing for Flor
Seattle (Wash.) O'Dea offensive lineman Sam Flor took on a grueling camp schedule and impressed college coaches enough to pick up his first FBS offer over the summer. "Summer has been great," said Flor. "July was pretty quiet, but in June I was all over the place." Washington State was the first school to offer the 6'4" 270lbs lineman a full ride, but they won't be the last. "The same schools have been talking to me," said Flor. "I talked to the Stanford OL coach this morning. I am heading over to Washington State for a visit soon." I addition to the offer from WSU, Flor has the option of attending Princeton or Holy Cross, on what will likely be partial scholarships, as well a preferred walk on spot at Notre Dame. "I visited some Ivy leagues in June, a few of them offered me to play there, not full rides," said Flor. "I was also offered a preferred walk-on spot at Notre Dame." Most fans would assume a spot as a preferred walk on wouldn't get much thought with offers on the table. However, it is something Flor is considering. He has listed Notre Dame as his dream school and would love to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and play there. "It's definitely something I am considering," said Flor. "I talked about getting the education and playing big time football, this seems like a good mix. There is also an opportunity to earn a scholarship." The leader at the moment would have to be Washington State. While Flor like the Cougars, he isn't in a hurry to make a decision. "With Washington State there is no pressure to commit, I can wait and see," said Flor. "I really like Coach Wulff and I want to see that they stay on track through a couple games." The largest factor in Flor's decision will likely be education. Many prospects give lip service to the concern over their education, but Flor is one prospect that truly seems to value his education and it has him considering the Ivy league programs. "Princeton and Holy Cross are the two I am talking to," said Flor. "Right now I am not sure matters more… I want to play high level football, but also want the education." Flor lists the Stanford Cardinal as the program he believes could offer next, the Cardinal have been honest with him throughout the process and he knows his patience may pay off. "Stanford said they have all their offers out, nobody is committing anywhere," said Flor. "When they do, they said I am near the top of the next group." Flor plans on taking his time before he makes his final decision, but did leave the window open to making his choice much sooner. "Honestly I don't know… that could all change," said Flor. "If I go over and really love WSU I could commit. A Stanford offer could change that, you never know." Jake Worthen is a West Recruiting Analyst for Scout.com.
