Griz recruit: Caleb Statham



I have heard that the Griz football staff is recruiting Caleb Statham of Blain high school in Blain, Washington. Statham is being primarily recruited as a running back prospect but some schools are also interested in him as a converted corner back prospect. The other intriguing thing about Statham is that he has the ability to break plays for huge gains, and could see an action early in his college carrier as return specialist.

Stratham is 5-10 and 175 and runs the 40 in 4.48 seconds. In his senior season he had 182 carries for 1488 yards and 21 touch downs on the season. This included a 99 yard gain from scrimmage which set a new school record. As a kick off and punt returner he average 30 yards per return.

His awards were numerous including unanimous All Conference First Team and NWC All-Conference Running Back, Team Offensive MVP. Ranked in 2009 as one of National Underclassmen, West top 100 RB, as well as 2009- Marcus Trufant Seahawks Football Camp MVP

He is an excellent all around athlete and I am told is one of the better high school soccer players in Washington in addition to his football process.

I am told that Montana, Portland State, UNLV and Washington State are currently recruiting Statham the hardest, but also Oregon, Oregon State and Washington are showing some interest. Washington and Oregon would be his favorite schools

    While not a professional scout, but an avid fan, I have had the opportunity to see Statham play first hand. I have been living here in Blaine since the Luke Ridenour days and the while I see so many similarities about the level of superiority Ridenour and Statham had over their peers locally, Ridenour was given the red carpet, while Statham has been overlooked because of his size, his locality and, frankly, because of his race. Just ask Gearhart at Stanford if he thinks he is a better back than Mark Ingram.

    One thing for recruiters to check out would be video of the Lynden/Blaine game last season, where Statham ran away from WSU committed recruit Blair Bomber. Bomber, who just endured what can only be called a lackluster season for the state champions, was perhaps the 3rd best player on his team. It would be a shame for a strong program to let Statham go by and then have to play him when that program schedules their patsy sacrificial lamb. Ask Blair Bomber what its like to look at Statham’s heels.
