Charleston Rambo still wonders how his recruitment took off so fast.
Double-digit offers have already rolled in to the four-star junior receiver from Cedar Hill, Texas, since Arizona State became the first. Just in the last week he added Notre Dame, Iowa State and Michigan State.
Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Houston, Miami, SMU, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, BYU, Indiana, Kansas and North Texas are among the other offers.
“It definitely surprised me,” Rambo said. “I wouldn’t have known I would be this far. It came unexpected but I’m taking it all in right now.”
Notre Dame joined the mix last week after offensive coordinator Mike Sanford visited Cedar Hill High School. Rambo wasn't the only prospect that interested Sanford.
Four-star junior quarterback Avery Davis also holds an Irish offer and visited campus late last season. Running back Kaegun Williams, wide receiver Camron Buckley and wide receiver Jaylon Jackson are also four-star prospects in the Class of 2017. Three-star linebacker Dimitri Moore has major scholarship offers as well.
“I don’t know too much about (Notre Dame),” Rambo said. “I know they’re nationally televised for their football games. I know they have some good receivers and a good program.”
Even though the process still has more than a year to play out, Rambo and some of his highly recruited teammates have had informal conversations about if they want to play together in college or not.
“We’ve never really brought it up,” Rambo said. “We’ve said some stuff on the side about me or Buckley going to the same college as Avery since he’s our quarterback. But we’ve never really sat down and talked about it.”
Rambo is beginning to explore his options a little bit more closely.
Florida State could be the next to offer. Rambo plans to visit Oklahoma this weekend. A few others are expressing more and more interest.
“I’m just taking all the schools in,” Rambo said. “It’s kinda wide open. But I’d say right now Duke, Miami, SMU and OU, they’re probably showing me the most love out of all my offers.”
Rambo expects more interest to come as his video makes the rounds, plus spring ball isn’t too far off. Working with his classmates is something that helps them all continue to improve, especially considering so many are headed on to play college ball.
“It feels good because we have competition on the field,” Rambo said. “It makes the competition better.”
