The phrase "blowing up" is often overused in the world of recruiting, but sometimes that's the only way to put it. And over the last month, La Mirada (Calif.) wide receiver Dallis Todd has been "blowing up."
His junior highlights were released on January 21st and the next day he had his first offer from Eastern Washington. The offers wouldn't slow down from there, though.
"Its been crazy," Todd said of the offers coming in. "School after school, every week, every day is another school."
La Mirada high school is no stranger to talent but the 2014 class might be the most talented in recent memory. Along with Todd, the Matadores feature no. 1 TE Tyler Luatua and quarterback Kevin Dillman so it's no wonder why college coaches have been flocking to the school 19 miles Southeast of Los Angeles.
"Since my highlight tape came out, a lot of coaches have been coming to talk to me," he said. "I talked to Urban Meyer, Brian Kelly and Butch Jones. It's just been crazy.
I'm open to go anywhere so I look at every school the same. I haven't really narrowed it down yet because I want to let it play out."
For Todd, the recruiting process is in full-swing and he was thankful for those around him who are they to help him out, including La Mirada head coach Mike Moschetti.
"He's been the number one person to help me through it all," he said. "If it wasn't for him and all the work he puts in, this wouldn't be possible for me."
More offers are sure to come Todd's way this off-season but he has a few in mind that he would like to add to his list.
On the field, his six-foot-five frame is catching attention but Todd says he is strong where he needs to be as a receiver.
"I'd say my speed and route running are good and I want to work on getting more YAC yards."
