Michael Floyd, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior receiver from St Paul (MN) Cretin Derham Hall, is having an outstanding season as he has paced the Raiders to a 6-0 start. Floyd caught 10 passes for a school record 228 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 28-7 win over White Bear Lake Friday. Floyd attneded the Minnesota-Penn State game SAturday and Golden Sports.Net learned of his latest offer.

He caught two passes in their season-opening 3-0 win over Hastings, totalling 134 yards and two scores. Floyd caught 10 passes for 173 yards and four touchdowns in the Raiders' 42-14 win over Wayzata in the second game.

Floyd had six catches for 107 yards and two receiving touchdowns and one rushing score in their 42-0 win over Mounds View in Week 5 and has scored at least one touchdown every week.

Floyd had previously told GoldenSports.Net that he has already received scholarship offers from Minnesota, Notre Dame, Nebraska and Iowa. However, he said that Kansas State had recently extended an offer and he is also hearing from Ohio State, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

Cretin head coach Mike Scanlan said that list will likely continue to grow.

"Everybody wants Mike and for good reason," Schanlan said.

Floyd, who is already drawing comparsions to current Arizona Cardinal wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He attended the Notre Dame and Iowa football camps this summer.

Floyd is also a basketball standout who played for the Minnesota Magic 1-and-under team that participated in the Hoosier Shootout, Kentucky Hoopfest and Orlando Super Showcase.

Floyd led Cretin Derham Hall to a 26-3 mark in basketball last season, losing to Woodbury 84-70 in the section finals. The Raiders return most of their team, which are also standouts on the football field. Floyd averaged 10.9 points per game as a sophomore. He scored more than 20 points three times last year.

Their top scorer for the past two years is Broderick Binns, a highly-sought defensive end. Binns averaged 17.9 points per game and scored in double figures 26 of 29 games last season.

Floyd said that he did not have a favorite team growing up, but admits that he does have a slight favorite in his recruitment.

"Notre Dame is my favorite. I like the coaching staff a lot. They offered me a scholarship right after their camp and I might try to go the Notre Dame-UCLA game October 21st," he said.

Minnesota head coach Glen Mason and wide receiver coach Luke Tressel attended the Raiders' game versus Roseville in Week 3.

Despite being a good basketball player, Floyd said that he plans on playing just football in college.

"I might just focus on the one sport."
