Reporting over 20 offers, wide receiver Andrey Baskin of Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, N.J., is already certain of his top two favorites.

The 6-foot-4, 197-pound Baskin completes his top five with Minnesota, Penn State and Nebraska and reports that all of his favorites have offered.

"Everyone is recruiting me for wide receiver," he said. "I play some defense but I don't like it. I want to be a receiver in college."

Baskin said he will not visit any camps or combines this year. He reports a 2.8 grade-point-average and said he will take the SAT in June. He said he would like to major in some kind of technical field, possibly computer science.
