4-star WR Khalil Shakir Shines In Vegas

Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta four-star receiver Khalil Shakir was one of the standouts at the adidas 7v7 National Championships last weekend...

Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta receiver Khalil Shakir continues to add offers and with more performance like this past weekend in Las Vegas, there may be even more on the horizon.


San Jose State offered the four-star this week and they followed offers from Nevada, Hawaii and Arizona in the past couple of weeks.

Shakir also had early offers from ColoradoUCLA and Washington State.

Another Pac-12 school is in conversation with Shakir.

"I'm hoping to get an offer from Arizona State," said Shakir.  "That is a school that I like and I've been talking to a lot."

A pair of Pac-12 schools are standing out a bit from his offers.

"I'm still pretty wide open and don't have a certain school that I'm favoring, so I'm open to anything," said Shakir.  "But from my offers, I like Washington State and UCLA."

Shakir said the passing offense of the Cougs has his attention.

"I like Washington State a lot," said Shakir.  "I know they love to throw the ball and that's big for me."

Meanwhile, UCLA is close to home and has his interest.

"UCLA is close and I'm going to visit them in the next couple weeks and visit with Coach (Jimmie) Dougherty," said Shakir.  "Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) is recruiting me and they like me as an athlete but its looking like receiver is what they want me to be."

Shakir said he will take his trips before making a decision.

"I definitely want to take all of my visits before I decide," said Shakir.
