Jason Rivers, a 6-2, 185-pound receiver from Honolulu (Hawaii) Saint Louis, is still reeling a bit…
Rivers trickling down with offers
Even though Kahuku won state last year, Rivers was named 2001 State Championship MVP. He puts that honor on his mantle next to the All-State and All-ILH selections he received. In the corner are his track accolades. He is Hawaii's reigning prep champion in the 100 and 200 meters, running an 11.0 and 22.5, respectively. He has an older brother, Frank, who will be a redshirt freshman receiver for the University of Hawaii this fall.
Rivers is especially looking forward to his senior campaign. The Hawaiian teams get to showcase their top talent against (arguably) the top two high schools from California in Honolulu this fall. Kahuku will take on Long Beach Poly, and Saint Louis will get to test their mettle against De La Salle and their 125-game winning streak. "I have a cousin who will be the starting fullback for Long Beach, and he told me that they have more talent, but De La Salle has more discipline," Jason said. "It's going to be a long battle. It's going to be really fun and interesting this year. Kahuku lost almost their whole team, and we've got a lot of players coming back."
Who has been recruiting Rivers the hardest? "Well, Colorado showed a lot of interest early on, but they run the ball a lot," he said. "I want to go to a place where the ball is going to be in my hands. Washington State, Washington and San Diego State have offered scholarships in writing. UH (Hawaii) hasn't sent anything to me yet. It's surprising to me."
His Top-2 are Washington and Oregon. "I really wanted to make my decision before the season started but I don't know if I'm going to yet," he said. "I wanted to commit to Oregon, but they haven't offered me yet, so I'm going to wait it out."
The Huskies have put the new guy on Jason. "Coach (Bobby) Kennedy went to practice and said he liked my work ethic and said I have good hands," he said. "He talked to me about some of the little things, like running routes and stuff like that. He seemed pretty excited."
