Arizona Western TE Demetrius Guice (6-5, 252) was received a two game suspension this year for a…
Two Pac 10 schools are after Guice
"I was getting recruited by a lot of schools when I was in high school," Guice told JCFootball.com. "It was frustrating because I worked really hard, but when it came to the tests I struggled a lot so we thought it would be best to head down (to Arizona Western) and just get football and school as the main two things I work on and that's what I've been doing."
Guice claims a 3.2 GPA and is working hard to get the classes necessary to finish up in December.
"As long as I get all the classes I need this summer, then I will be okay to graduate mid-year," Guice said. "I'll be able to sign in February no matter what, but I'd like to get out mid-year if possible."
As a freshman Guice managed to post seven receptions for 124 yards on a team that focused more on the running game.
"We got a lot of practice blocking and doing what we need to be to be successful all the way around," Guice said. "We run block, we pass block and we work on our routes, so I feel like I'm getting better all the way around."
At the JCFootball.com So Cal combine held at Orange Coast College on May 2nd, Guice was one of the top performers posting a 4.82 forty time, a 4.29 short shuttle and a 29-inch vertical.
Recruiting has begun to pick up for the talented tight end as well.
"Washington and Arizona both have been talking to me and told me they are keeping their eyes on me," Guice said. "I was recruited by Washington out of high school and with the new staff up there, they have a lot going on to be excited about.
"Oregon State is also recruiting me, but they aren't as serious about me as Washington and Arizona."
As mentioned earlier, Guice is working hard to be able to sign in December but if not he's on pace to finish in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
