Two-sport recruit has busy summer

Fullback Cole Huntley (6-0, 253, 4.8) from Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley is getting serious recruiting attention for his skills in two sports. The two sports are football and rugby.

Huntley has offers from Cal and UCLA for his skills on the rugby pitch. He is being looked at by Boston College, Colorado, Stanford, Washington, UC-Davis and Brown for football.

Huntley had a very busy summer.

"I was contacted in early June by Coach Tim Lappano the offensive coordinator at Washington and he invited me to Washington's camp," Huntley said. "I had a great time at the camp and several coaches worked out with me one-on-one.
