Jack Sula, the 5-foot-10.5, 205-pound two-star running back/outside linebacker from Carson, Calif., is getting ready to play in the Los Angeles City Championship game on Dec. 7 against Birmingham High School.
Sula helped lead his team to an 11-2 record, and he has rushed for over 1500 yards and 23 touchdowns while catching nearly 300 yards in passes for five more scores. He also has 80 tackles, three sacks and one interception.
Favoring Washington and Nevada solidly over Stanford, San Diego State and Air Force, Sula says all of his favorites except the Cardinal have offered. "My coach says that Stanford has talked to him about me, but I haven't talked to them myself," Sula said. "I know that I need to improve my SAT score (significantly) for Stanford."
Sula has a 3.8 core GPA and a 930 SAT, which he is retaking on Jan. 26.
He says the school that is recruiting him the hardest is Nevada. "I've been in touch with running back coach Jim Mastro and they've been showing a lot of interest," he said. "They have a good team and they say they love my downhill running and how I fight hard for my yards."
Sula says he hasn't scheduled any official visits yet, but intends to take several in January. "I've talked to Nevada, San Diego State and Washington about setting up an official visit, but I couldn't really do it sooner because we're still in the playoffs," he said. "I guess I'll try to take as many as I can in January."
All of Sula's favorites are recruiting him as a running back, expect for Washington which says they like him as an athlete. "I really like the coaches at Washington," he said. "They really know what they are talking about. I'm being recruited by (running back) coach Trent Miles and we have a pretty good relationship. Plus, Seattle seems like a great place to live and a good place for football."
Two of Sula's previous favorites, Oregon and California, neither of whom ever offered, aren't recruiting him anymore. Sula had an offer from Utah, but says he isn't hearing much from the Utes either.
He hasn't had any in-home visits yet.
