Lofty ambitions

Wide receiver David Sutton has lofty expectations for his first year at Compton Junior college. <br><br> "I want to be the top junior college wide receiver in the nation," he told

After a superb showing at the Combine in May several schools have been in contact with the confident player.

Colorado, Utah State, Michigan State and Oregon State all talked with the lanky receiver. Sutton has taken unofficial visits to Utah State, Colorado and Oregon State this summer.

While he was in Corvallis head coach Mike Riley and his staff told the 6-foot-6, 225-pound receiver that they are looking for a player who can catch a lot of passes.

"They need a receiver they can rely on to catch a lot of balls," he said. "I think that I can be that guy. I think I could go there, redshirt, and be ready to start tearing it up the following year.""

Sutton recently returned from trips to Logan, Utah and East Lansing, Michigan. He enjoyed each trip and moved the Spartans and the Aggies to the top of his list while sliding OSU to the bottom.

The California native will play alongside former Beaver recruit James Finely. The two will provide a formidable threat to opposing teams.

"Look for Compton to come out of nowhere," Sutton said. "I know they were 2-9 last fall but we'll be good this year.

We'll have a good passing game with me, James Finley, and Corey Fredericks. I want to go for 1,200 yards and 20 touchdowns."

Sutton would like to make his decision as soon as possible. Comment:
OSU is still in the running for Sutton's services. As expected he changes his top schools almost every week. He currently holds no offers, but could commit to the first school that offers him. Don't expect an offer to come from any of the schools before the football season though. The coaches want to see how he performs before giving him a free ride.
