Victorville (Calif.) Victor Valley defensive back Kris Hawkins picked up his first offer late last month, from San Jose State.

And it shocked him when it came.

"It was an amazing feeling," said Hawkins.  "I wasn't expecting it. Where I come from, in the High Desert, no one really comes out here, so it was a surprise."

The 6-1, 180-pound Hawkins can play on either side of the ball but said the offer came for defense.

"I was offered as a safety," said Hawkins.  "Coach Will Harris offered me."

Now Hawkins is hoping more schools get involved, namely from the Pac-12.

"I've been hearing from WashingtonUCLA and USC," said Hawkins.  "I'm hoping to check out UCLA and USC and I'm for sure going to check out San Jose State."

Hawkins will be at The Opening Los Angeles regional this weekend.
