The spring evaluation period has been very good to Jalen Nailor.
Through a couple weeks, the three-star wide receiver from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman has landed scholarship offers from Arizona State, Michigan State and Washington State, adding to a list that had already grown earlier in the offseason.
Among the newcomers, the Spartans were the first to join the chase and Nailor, the top-rated receiver in Nevada for the 2018 class, told Scout.com it was a notable offer in his recruitment given the program's recent success.
"The offer means a lot because it's a big-time program and I could see myself going there to make plays for the school," Nailor said. "On Wednesday I was able to chat with coach (Brad) Salem and he told me the whole coaching staff really likes me. They think I could make an impact there. On Friday, I talked to coach (Terrence) Samuel and they offered me. I could play outside, inside and all around in their offense.
"I'll try to take a visit out there in July when I head out to Wisconsin and some of those other schools out there like Purdue. At Wisconsin I've been talking to coach (Ted) Gilmore a lot. Our bond is really growing. The offer sticks out a lot still."
Nailor was able to visit Tempe in early March and, though he didn't have an offer from the Sun Devils then, said he could see himself fitting into the campus. Arizona State signed Nailor's former teammate, Alex Perry, in February.
"I liked the school and how they're building a new facility," Nailor said. "The football program will be growing in the next couple years and I really like the atmosphere at the school a lot.
"I like how they spread the ball around offensively. They get their receivers involved. I had a conversation with coach (Rob) Likens and we talked a bit while watching some film. It was a good time. I'm planning to get out there again in July after my visits out east."
Washington State had a representative drop by Bishop Gorman a week ago and the offer arrived Monday afternoon.
"It's big because they throw the ball all over the place," Nailor said. "Eventually, I definitely want the get up there and visit."
The 6-foot, 175-pound Nailor was credited with 51 receptions for 929 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior last season.
