San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills cornerback Dechaun Holiday has more offers than he knows what to do with them, with Texas A&M and Mississippi State the latest to offer.

Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Boston College, California, Colorado, Colorado State, Florida State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Utah, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State have all offered Holiday.

The 6-2, 200-pound four-star was the DB MVP at the Los Angeles NFTC and this week was selected to The Opening.

It's been that kind of spring for Holiday.

Oregon was the 11th of the 12 Pac-12 schools to offer, with only Stanford yet to offer, and Holiday was thrilled with the offer from the Ducks.

"It was real big," said Holiday. "I had been waiting on that one. When I got it, I was really happy. I definitely like them."

Holiday said a few schools stand out for him, in fact, naming a top seven, though not a final seven.

"I have a couple of standouts right now and then I'll narrow it down soon," said Holiday. "My top schools right now are UCLA, USC, Florida State, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Oregon."

Holiday visited UCLA unofficially in February and said he had a great time.

"I really like the coaches at UCLA," said Holiday. "Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) and Coach (Jim) Mora are great coaches and really cool. I really had a good trip to UCLA."

Holiday said he's aware that safety could be in his future.

"I really like corner, because that's what I played, but I'm not opposed to safety," said Holiday. "Some coaches have said they'll keep me at corner, while others said it would be a game time decision when I got there if I moved to safety."

Holiday said he doesn't anticipate making a decision any time soon.

"Right now I'm looking like a Signing Day decision," said Holiday.
