Recruiting Update: Jonathan Gaye

Mullen RB Jonathan Gaye

RB Jonathan Gaye from Mullen HS (Denver, CO) has informed Scout.com that he has received an offer from a Big 1o program.

RB Jonathan Gaye from Mullen HS is making a strong case to be Colorado's number one prep runner. Already holding offers from Colorado State, Wyoming, Air Force and New Mexico State, Illinois has offered and Gaye seems to be excited about the offer.

 

The 6-1 190 pound Gaye says, "Illinois and Syracuse were the first schools to contact me during this recruiting process. Illinois came out to see me over a month ago. For me to get an early offer from them is a big deal. They're in the Big 10 Conference. That conference has three teams ranked in the top 10, including Ohio State that was ranked #1 all last year until they lost in the BCS championship game. The Big 10 is probably the best conference in the NCAA right now except for maybe the SEC. When a team in a tough conference like that tells you they think you can help get them back to the top of their conference its got to mean something to you"

 

Gaye just finished track season, where he is one of the state's top sprinters and is going to keep on working through the summer. He adds, "As far as football camps this summer, I can't say for sure what camps I'll be going to but I'll probably go to the Nike Camp in Boulder on June 2nd."

 

Quite a few other schools are expressing interest in Gaye and may be close to offering. He says that Georgia, Louisville, Boise State, Kansas State, Washington State, San Diego State and Utah are among those schools. He also adds, "I got a call at home a few nights ago from one of the coaches at Notre Dame. We talked for about 15 minutes. He said he'll be watching me when the season starts."

 

Gaye currently lists a top seven of Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico State and Wyoming in no particular order.

 

Gaye was hurt for most of his junior year but was very productive on his limited touches. He had 275 yards rushing and 4 TDs on just 12 touches.
