Cali Defensive Tackle Pledges Wisconsin
"Blake (Ferras) has his academics in order now and he'll sign with Wisconsin on December 19th." Said City College of San Francisco defensive line coach John Balano.
"Blake was being pursued by several PAC-10 schools and Nebraska recently came in but the Wisconsin staff really blew Blake away. From what Blake told us, Coach Bielema is real no-nonsense type of guy. He doesn't tell you what you want to hear and Blake loved that."
City College of San Francisco won a National Championship this season and Coach Balano said the defense was anchored by Ferras.
"Blake is strong enough to be a one-gap run stuffer and he's athletic enough to be a two-gap pass rusher," Coach Balano said.
"Blake only has one motor. He puts it in 5th gear and goes. Blake has great practice habits, he practices like he plays and he leads by example. If you go half-speed around Blake, you're going to get run over."
City College has an outstanding junior college program and they send several players to play at D-1 programs year in and year out.
"We have a great program here," said Coach Balano. "Our kids are prepared once they leave here. They know what they have to do once they get to the college of their choice. It's all business.
"C.C.O.S.F. actually has a Wisconsin tie. Coach (Paul) Chryst used to recruit a lot of our kids when he was at Oregon State so we tell our kids that Coach Chryst is a great coach and a great guy to play for and be around. We feel good about sending kids to play for Coach Chryst and now Coach Bielema."
