One of the top two-way players for Los Flores (Calif.) Tesoro’s squad this year was receiver/safety Brett Gudim (6-1, 175).
Gudim received his first offer, from Air Force, last weekend.
“I had been talking to them for a while and they were watching the video and liked what they saw,” said Gudim. “The offer came last Friday and they were coming on Wednesday for dinner.”
For Gudim, it was a relief to get that long-awaited offer.
“It was my first D-I offer so it was really exciting,” said Gudim. “I never really thought, I would get a D-I offer, but now that I got it, it’s like a dream come true. I know the education will be great, I know it’s a longer commitment than most D-I schools, but I know it’s a great opportunity for us. The education will be really, really good. I think it’s a really good thing to get my first offer from Air Force.”
Other schools have been expressing interest in Gudim as well.
“San Diego, they told me that I have a spot on the team,” said Gudim. “Kansas, I went there this summer and I grew up in Kansas. I went up there and they offered me a preferred walk on spot. I’m also hearing from Navy, Cal Poly, Wyoming, and UC Davis.”
Gudim did damage on both sides of the ball, but all of his interest is coming as a receiver.
“Air Force they like me as a WR, but they think I can turn into a good safety. But everyone is looking at me for a WR,” said Gudim.
Gudim said that two teams are standing out for him.
“I would say it’s a 2-man race between Air Force and San Diego,” said Gudim. “The Air Force offer definitely catapulted them in my top two.”
Gudim hails from Kansas and said the Jayhawks were his childhood favorite.
“I love watching KU football and basketball, and I would definitely say that’s my favorite school as a fan, but they’re my backup really,” said Gudim.
Gudim is hopeful to have a decision by Signing Day.
An excellent student, Gudim has a 3.8 and scored a 25 on the ACT.
During his senior year, he had 45 receptions for 905 yards, averaging 20 yards a catch, and had 15 touchdown receptions. Defensively, he had 51 tackles and nine interceptions, three for touchdowns.
