El Cerrito (Calif.) cornerback Marcellus Pippins (5-10, 175), has seven offers as he prepares for his final prep season.

"I have seven offers right now, from San Diego State, UCLA, Utah, Utah State, Washington State, Fresno State and UNLV," said Pippins.

And Pippins said that two more schools could also be jumping into the mix.

"I think possibly Oregon could offer and I think Iowa State could offer too," said Pippins.

Two schools, Pippins said, are recruiting him the hardest.

"Washington State and UCLA are definitely recruiting me the hardest right now," said Pippins.

And Pippins said that those two, plus two others, are standing out to him.

"My top four right now is Washington State, UCLA, San Diego State and Utah," said Pippins.

Pippins said he's likely to take all five official visits.

"Washington State and UCLA are ones I definitely want to visit. It's looking like I want to take all five visits and then decide. I'll take some of them after the season."

Academically, Pippins has a 3.2 and will take the SAT this fall.

Last fall, Pippins had 10 touchdowns and picked off seven passes.
