He had decent showings at the Stanford Nike Camp and UnderArmour/Scout.com L.A. Combine. But the offers have not followed.
"All the Pac-10 schools are sending me invites to go to games," said Sears. "But no offers."
Arizona State verbally offered Sears in the spring, and schools like UCLA, Colorado State, and Fresno State showed much interest over the course of the year. Nonetheless, Sears is not discouraged about the lack of serious attention.
"If I don't get the right offer, I am going to COS," said Sears.
That is College of the Sequoias in Visalia, California, where former legendary Fresno-Edison DB coach Tony Perry coaches the Giants secondary.
Sears says he has no worries about going the JC route. He says playing under Coach Perry for a few years can get him where he wants to be in terms of landing the right college scholarship. He reports a 2.7 GPA, but he has not taken his SAT. Sears says he has not scheduled to take his test. However, he understands it is not needed if he enrolls at a California junior college.
