Locals accept walk-on offers

With National Signing Day now behind us, schools are starting to fill out their rosters with preferred walk-ons, and we’ve got a couple guys that have accepted offers to some pretty good programs.

One of those is Ygnacio Valley’s Grant Jones, who has accepted a walk-on offer to BYU. Jones played receiver and linebacker at YV, but projects as a pass-catching tight end in college with his 6-foot-5 frame and good hands. He had an offer from Dartmouth as well.

At Miramonte, offensive lineman Ross Dolbec has accepted a preferred walk-on offer to Washington, according to Rivals.com. Dolbec checks in at 6-foot-5, 306 pounds and he’ll head to Seattle to play offensive line for the Huskies. He also had a walk-on offer from Arizona.

And, finally, Dawgman.com reports that the Huskies have also snagged San Ramon Valley defensive lineman Ben Teichman. Teichman had offers from Army, Navy, Sacramento State, Cal Poly and North Dakota but decided he wanted to play in the Pac-10 and took the walk-on offer. Teichman is 6-foot-1, 275 pounds.

Congrats to all three!
