California OL Juarez gaining interest

12/21/2012

His Under Armour All-American teammate gets all the attention, but offensive lineman Anthony Juarez (Corona, Calif./Centennial) only thinks of that as a positive.

"Coaches watch film and come to see Cameron Hunt and they see that some of us can play, too," Juarez said. "I have heard a lot of good things from some of the coaches."

Good things aren't the only things the 6-foot-6, 310-pound offensive tackle is hearing from college coaches.

"Idaho and New Mexico State have offered me so far, but I have been hearing from a lot of other schools lately," said Juarez, a three-year starter. "Ole Miss, San Jose State, Washington State, Arizona State and Utah State have all talked about getting me out to visit."

The massive tackle said that he is using this week as an opportunity to see how he compares to some of the best defensive linemen in California.

"I just want to see how I do when I face some of these guys," Juarez said. "I have gone against Kenneth Clark (Rialto, Calif./Carter) in practice and that guy is big and powerful. He provides a huge challenge every time."
