A month ago Norwalk HS running back Rashaad Penny was still looking for his first offer. Fast forward to now and he's picked up four offers to go along with interest from a slew of others.

"SDSU is hitting me the hardest right now," Penny Said. "They're highly interested. It sounds like I can do a lot to help them out if I went there. They encourage me how great of a place it is. If I ever played they're I would be a big deal."

"I'm kind of a speed running back, but I can turn on the power when I need those tough yards. I use my juking ability to get by guys."

The Aztecs have joined San Jose State, Fresno State, and Eastern Washington as schools that have offered Penny.

Penny was hoping to visit San Diego State for "Warrior Day", but had a prior football commitment. "I've never been to San Diego State. I would love to get down to San Diego this summer. My aunt used to live there so I'm very familiar with the places down there."

Penny has been working very hard following Norwalk's early exit from the Southern Section playoffs this past season, "I do our football routines at the high school. Bench pressing and I do ropes and kettle bells. I just go outside and get tired. When I'm at home I go jogging to a nearby stadium and run the stairs. I feel like I didn't give it my all during my junior season and I want to leave with a bang my senior year."

Penny's recruitment has started to heat up and he doesn't plan on ending it early, "I'll wait for signing day to commit."

"Academics are important because if I don't get that much playing time I can say I majored in something. I'm gonna be dedicated for any program that I play for. I've thought about studying sports management and sports broadcasting, I like that stuff a lot."
