Jack Sula, the 5-foot-10.5, 205-pound two-star running back/outside linebacker from Carson, Calif., continues to favor Washington, but is taking a wait and see approach before he makes a final decision. "I want to wait and see what else is out there," Sula said. "You never know who else may still offer or come along. I think the best thing I can do right now is to use my time wisely."
Sula said favors the Huskies slightly over California, Nevada, Utah, San Diego State and Oregon. All of his favorites have offered except the Bears and Ducks.
"I'm starting to hear from Oregon more and more," he said. "The coaches have been to my school and they've called my house. They said they are really interested and want to see more film from this season.
"But I don't really talk to Cal at all," he admitted. "The most I get from them is letters and questionnaires. I really like their program and how they do things there."
Sula also said he's also still considering USC and UCLA, but neither local team has offered. "I still get plenty of letters from both of them and they are definitely schools I'm looking at. We'll see if they offer."
The school that is recruiting him the hardest is Washington. "I actually just recently watched the USC game again and I was really impressed with how they fought hard and gave them a run for their money," he said. "I think they are improving and I like coach Tyrone Willingham. I hear he's not only a good coach, but also a good man.
"I just think that Washington needs to recruit some more big names and maybe get some guys from California up there," he said. "They are definitely a team on the rise and that would help get them to the next level."
Sula says the Huskies are recruiting him as an athlete, while Oregon seems to be leaning towards linebacker. The others (Cal, Nevada, Utah and San Diego State) are all recruiting him for running back.
"I've never really been off the field," Sula admitted. "I don't know what that would be like to not play. Playing time will be a big factor because I really don't want to go and sit on the bench. I want to be able to play early and for coaches that like me as not only a player, but also a person. I want to have good communication with my coaches."
The only official visit Sula has set up is to San Diego State in November. "I'm not really able to take any visits during the season," he said. "I'll probably take them all after the season ends."
Carson High School is currently 6-2. In a 56-28 victory over Washington High School, Sula had 140 yards rushing for five touchdowns. Carson plays two more games before starting the playoffs.
He reports a 3.8 core GPA and has a 930 SAT.
