Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks cornerback Marcus Rios (6-0, 165), has been focusing on three schools since parting ways with Boise State, and a couple of other schools are picking up their interest in the four-star.

"We thought there might be some other interest from other schools after Marcus decommitted and since then, a couple of other schools have come in," said his father, Richard. "And then he's looking at the three he's visiting, UCLA, Nebraska and Arizona State."

Rios visited UCLA officially the weekend they hosted Texas and he'll take official visits the next two weekends.

"Marcus will be flying out on Saturday to Arizona State with Coach (Ryan) Gomes (the Cosumnes Oaks head coach) for an official visit and then Thanksgiving weekend, he'll be going out to Nebraska officially," said his father.

Oregon and Notre Dame have also gotten in touch with Rios.

"Oregon has come in pretty heavy. Coach (John) Neal was at the game on Friday and he was very happy and interested in Marcus. They want him to visit so we're going to try and set that up," said his father. "And Notre Dame has called a few times and has requested tape.

UCLA hosted Rios two months ago but still stay in regular touch with Rios.

"Marcus talks to the coaches at UCLA weekly and he's still very interested in UCLA," said his father.

If he chooses to take his last two visits, Rios will try to do those in December.

"He graduates December 15th so he's going to try and get them done before then," said his father.

Rios will play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in Phoenix in January.

This weekend, Cosumnes Oaks will take on Rocklin (Calif.) Whitney in the second round of the CIF-SacJoaquin Section playoffs, and he'll face off against a team quarterbacked by Oregon commit Jake Rodrigues.

"Marcus and Jake were on the same 7on7 team at The Opening so they're looking forward to it," said his father.
