Jarek Hilgers on Hot Prospect Watch List for 2012

Jarek Hilgers will certainly be a hot prospect to watch for in 2012. Hilgers’ Desert Vista Thunder are coming off an Arizona Class 5A Div. 1 state championship, where he played an instrumental role as part of a deep group of quality running backs. Two of the backs in that group were seniors Michael Arredondo (New Mexico State commit) and Dominic Kereluk, therefore, opponents should expect to see a lot more of the athletic and powerful Hilgers in 2012.

The Thunder finished the 2011 season ranked No. 11 in the nation by USA Today. However, because they lose big-time players like Arredondo, Kereluk, QB Hunter Rodriguez (Idaho Commit) J.J. Dielman (Utah Commit) most analyst are predicting that it will be difficult for the team to repeat as state champs in 2012.

Desert Vista will quickly learn where they stand in 2012 as their first contest of the season will be against USA Today’s No. 5 team in 2011 Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas, Nevada). The game will also be a big test for Hilgers—no doubt there will be plenty of college scouts on hand for the high profile battle.
