2012 WR Prospect Has Emerged

After a standout performance at the U.S. Army Combine last weekend, junior receiver prospect Trent Sewell from Bothell, Washington, talked to us about his recruitment, and his two Pac-10 scholarship offers...

Moving to the balanced offense of Bothell (Wash.) from Seattle O'Dea worked out well for 2012 receiver Trent Sewell (6-3, 195).

One of the top pass-catchers in the West in what will be a deep year, Sewell, who already has a pair of Pac-10 scholarship offers, has emerged as one of the Northwest's top recruits.

"I already have offers from Washington State and UCLA," said Sewell. "And I've been hearing from Oregon, Boise State, Nebraska, LSU, Washington and USC."

Sewell said that Washington and Oregon have both been by his campus, and he attended the Washington-Oregon State game this fall.

Last summer, he took in numerous camps, including one down to UCLA, and plans to do the same this summer.

"I'm going to wait until the summer to do more camps, but this summer I know I want to go to Oregon, USC, Cal and Boise State and not sure where else but I know I'll take in a few more."

Sewell, a two-sport standout who also runs track, says he's in no rush to end his recruitment.

"I want to go through the whole process and take some trips," said Sewell. "I'm in track right now to stay in shape, but once it's done I'll focus on football and my recruitment more."

Sewell said he doesn't have a favorite yet, and he's enjoying initial conversations with college coaches.

"I don't have a favorite school and I can't say a school is recruiting me the hardest but I've got time," said Sewell.

Sewell was one of the standouts at the U.S. Army Combine last weekend, after coming into his own as a receiver this past season.

In 2010, he caught 44 passes for 1,058 yards and scored 11 touchdowns, earning all-league honors for the state semifinalist. Academically, Sewell has a 3.0 and will take the SAT and ACT in the spring.
