Speedy wide receiver David Gettis, who is from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey, is now up to three scholarship offers, but more will undoubtedly be coming the way of the all-league performer. His offer list only includes Pac-10 Conference schools right now. As a junior, Gettis caught 24 passes for 496 yards (20.7 yards per catch average) and he scored seven touchdowns.
His offer list includes "Washington, Arizona, and Arizona State." However, Gettis is also receiving lots of attention from Oregon, USC and UCLA and the rest of the Pac-10 schools.
His statistics are not bad by any means, but they might be the reason he has not received more offers by now. Gettis has an almost perfect size and speed to be a big-time performer at the college level.
Gettis measures 6-foot-4 and weighs 192-pounds. He has been clocked at running a 4.3-second 40-yard dash and currently has a bench maximum of 210 pounds. If for some reason Gettis cannot get by his man with his speed, he should be able to leap and reach over shorter defensive backs.
As of now, Gettis is listing five favorite schools that stand out above the others.
“USC, Washington, Oregon, Arizona State, and UCLA,” Gettis said about his favorite schools.
The schools he would like to take official visits to vary slightly since he is from Los Angeles and already knows plenty about USC and UCLA. Oregon, Washington, Arizona State, Notre Dame, and LSU are the schools Gettis would like to visit this fall.
Gettis explained why he liked some of his favorite schools.
Oregon: “I’ve met the coaches from Oregon at a UCLA game actually. They seemed nice. Most of the players from my school go to Oregon - Jerome Boyd, Jerome Johnson, Marques Binns, and a lot of others. Always sticking together with teammates is in the back of your head.”
USC: “(I like) the coaching style. I like the coaching staff also. They seem open to the players. It is close to home – I could have family and friends watch the games.”
UCLA: “(I like) the coaching staff. The new coach, Bienemy, didn’t really have a chance to recruit his players. I feel confident in him.”
LSU: “I’m really liking them lately. They’ve been showing me a lot more attention.”
Playing early could be a deciding factor for Gettis when choosing a school. He mentioned the aspects of a program that are important to him.
“The best offer and me being able to perform at a school where they play freshman. A lot of the prestigious programs don’t play their freshman and I want to be able to play.”
Gettis was selected second-team all-league as a junior and with a 47.1-second time in the 400-meters, he won the state championship as a sophomore.
