Sewell Has Two Offers, Looking for More

It has been awhile since Notre Dame landed a recruit from the state of Washington, but the Irish may look to do that in 2012. Junior wide receiver Trent Sewell from Bothell High School (Wash.) has been receiving recruiting material from Notre Dame and would like to make a trip out to South Bend at some point.

Trent Sewell (6-foot-2, 192-pounds) hasn't had a chance to check out a game at Notre Dame, but he's hoping to get that chance in the future.

"I've received a few letters from Notre Dame, a couple weeks back probably at the beginning of the season," Sewell said. "They've sent me some game invited. I tried calling them a couple times to figure out what games I'd be able to attend, but they were on the road and I wasn't able to talk to any of the coaches.

"They're a good school, and I've heard a lot good things about them. Growing up, it was one of those schools that you thought would be a great place to be.

"My uncle played football in college," he said. "Notre Dame is one of the schools he liked, but he ended up going to Oregon State."

Sewell played at O'Dea high school in Seattle, his first two years of high school, but after making the long commute back and forth to school every day, he just felt he could be more productive making the switch to Bothell.

"I went to O'Dea through my sophomore year and then I transferred this year," he said. "I started as a sophomore. O'Dea isn't a passing team, but last year I led the team in touchdown receptions with two.

"I loved it at O'Dea. It's a good brotherhood and good team, but Bothell has a lot of the good qualities just as O'Dea did, it's just a faster pace offense. I think I have 26 receptions, 580 yards and eight touchdowns now."

Those are number through seven games, and number that are getting him noticed by several top programs.

"Have offers from UCLA and Washington State," Sewell said. "I've also been hearing from Oregon, Cal, Washington, Michigan, Duke, LSU, and Texas A&M, but I've mostly been talking to Oregon and the PAC-10 schools.

"I'm honestly keeping my options open. I'm looking to get a great education, but also be a part of a great program. Anything that will work for me and what will be a great school for me, because there's a lot to life other than football." Top Stories
