Molton ready to hit camp circuit

Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral cornerback Darrien Molton is getting ready to hit the camp circuit in an effort to rack up more offers this Spring.

Darrien Molton is receiving more attention from programs as Spring football approaches. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound cornerback has three offers from Cal, Washington State and Colorado, but more could be coming.

"Other schools that are looking at me are Arizona, Arizona State," Molten said. "Oregon just got my transcript so I think I'll be talking with them soon. Also, Northwestern."

The Ducks are a program that particularly intrigues the three-star Chaparral DB.

"My interest level is very high with Oregon," Molton said. "I think it's a great school. I love the school and I think they have a really good program and I think it'd be a big school if they recruited me. I definitely do like them."

One program that Molton would love to hear from is LSU, a program that he sees as top notch.

"They just started growing on me," Molton said. "I love the DB's. I love Patrick Peterson and his game. I just like all of the DB's that came out of that school like Eric Reid and Tyrann Mathieu and I think it's a top school."

Molton wants to take his time with the whole recruiting process. Although he doesn't have any visits planned at the moment, he wants to see all of the schools that are recruiting him, if he can, to ensure that he's making the right choice.

"I'm going to wait until I find the right one," Molton said. "I don't want to rush things and make the wrong decision."

While playing for an elite program is preferable, Molton made it clear that comfortability will be a key factor in finding the right fit for him.

"Obviously education has to come first," Molton said. "If football doesn't work out, I have to rely on my education for my future. But, also I want to feel comfortable at the school and get along with the coaches."

Instead of visits, Molton will be competing at a Rivals Camp and a Nike NFTC Camp in early March. He said he is training three times a week to build up his strength, speed and explosiveness. He is also spending his weekends participating in the B2G 7-on-7 tournaments.

Molton self reported a 3.0 grade point average.
