Major Looks for High-Major Interest

The talented receiver from Las Vegas, MarQuan Major, sat out most of his junior season because of an injury. Even with that he has some scholarship offers, but he's starting to get the attention of some bigger schools...

Las Vegas (Nev.) High's MarQuan Major (6-3, 175) is one of Nevada's top prospects in the class of 2011, and despite missing much of his junior year with an injury, he has two scholarship offers.

"Idaho and UNLV have offered me," said Major. "But a lot more schools have been saying they're watching me and want to watch my senior film."

One of those schools is UCLA, which sent Major his first recruiting letter a year ago, and where he camped last month.

Major was one of the standouts at the UCLA Camp, earning praise from the coaching staff during the drills, when he was routinely beating defensive backs.

"I thought I did really well at the UCLA camp," said Major. "Coach (Reggie) Moore was working a lot with me and said I was one of the best receivers there."

Major said the Bruin staff has been up front with him in his recruitment.

"They said they could offer me early, but they do want to see some of my senior year," said Major. "But they said they're really interested."

Major said the Bruins are atop his list, along with UNLV, the hometown school.

"UNLV showed me a lot, offering me early and with my injury and Coach (Bobby) Hauck is building something there."

Colorado, Oregon State and Utah have also been showing interest in Major, who's in no rush to make a decision.

"I want to wait and take some trips before I commit anywhere," said Major. "I want to play my senior year and get some bigger offers."

The three-star prospect said he's solid academically.

"I'm already fully qualified," said Major.
