Rambo excited by first Pac 12 offer

Pasadena (Calif.) La Salle athlete Evan Rambo has made a smooth transition to a new school and picked up his first Pac 12 offer on Thursday.

Evan Rambo played his junior year at Los Angeles (Calif.) Verbum Dei, where he stood out on both sides of the ball. He was a dual threat quarterback who threw for 963 yards and eight touchdowns and rushed for 569 yards and 10 more scores. He also had 51 tackles and picked off four passes while playing safety.

"Things are good at La Salle, I'm really happy here," Rambo said. "It has been a real smooth adjustment so far and we have a nice team here. We have a lot of good skill players, good quarterback and running backs so I think we're going to have a good year."

On the recruiting front, Rambo landed his first offer from San Diego State and picked up his first Pac 12 offer earlier today.

"I got an offer from California," Rambo said. "This is a big offer and I have a lot of interest. Coach Burns has been talking to me and said he liked my tape from last year. Then he came to our practice and watched us workout and today I got the offer.

"They offered me as an athlete and I'm comfortable on either side of the ball. I think I can play receiver, corner or safety and honestly, whatever gets me on the field the fastest is what I want to play. Cal has a great combination of academics and athletics and that's what I'm looking for so I like them a lot."

Rambo visited San Diego State over the summer and also camped at UCLA.

"I liked SDSU a lot, it's a beautiful place," Rambo said. "Tony White is the coach recruiting me and he's a great guy. They offered me as an athlete as well. The UCLA camp was great and I got some good feedback from Coach Yarber and Coach Martin.

"I worked out on both sides of the ball and they seem interesting and will be watching me this year. Washington State is another school that is recruiting me and I have high interest in them too. Right now, I'm just going to play out the process and work on having a big senior season and we'll see where things go from there."
