Evergreen State Battle Brewing For Renfro?

Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Ca.) ATH Isaiah Renfro will visit Washington and Washington State in June and he recently told Dawgman.com that those unofficials could go a long way in helping him decide where he will play his college ball...

"Washington just offered me the other day," Renfro told Dawgman.com. "Coach (Brent) Pease is the coach that is recruiting me and I guess he was down here recently and he saw me at a passing league that we take part in after school and he told my coach they were offering me.

"That is a big offer for me. I was really excited about it. They are a great program and they have some great history. I also like the coaches a lot and I am really happy they offered me."

In addition to his offer from the Dawgs, Renfro also has offers from Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada, Northwestern, San Diego State, Utah and Washington State.

With all of those choices in front of him, Renfro said he's honed in on the two Evergreen State programs and that his trip north in June could help him make an early decision.

"I haven't set the dates yet because I have to work it out with my mom and dad and also the schools, but I'm looking at going up there to Washington to see both schools at some point next month," Renfro noted. "I don't think it will be to take part in camps, but I'll go to Washington State first and then I'll fly over to Seattle and see Washington.

"After that, I 'll go back home and see where things stand.

"I know that spots can fill up quickly, so I don't want to wait too long. In a perfect world, I'd love to take my visits and then decide, but with spots filling up, I don't want to miss out on the possibility of playing for a school because I wanted to wait, so I'll just feel it out and see what happens.

"Most likely, I will make my decision before my senior season, but I haven't really set a date or anything."

Renfro played last season at 185 pounds, but said he has added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame.

"I'm 6'2 and I've put on some size so I'm 195 pounds now," Renfro said. "Pretty much every school that is recruiting me has told me they like me at wideout, but some have told me they like me at both receiver and at defensive back.

"Washington wants me as a receiver and Washington State said they like me on either side.

"I'm open to playing wherever I am needed, but I'd say I prefer receiver just because I like to have the ball in my hands and I feel like that is where I'm at my best."

As a junior this past fall, Renfro received All League, All Mid-Valley Division, All CIF and First Team California All State Junior Team honors after he racked up 71 receptions for 1,302 yards and 20 touchdowns on offense to go along with 55 tackles and an interception on the defensive side of the ball.

While both the Huskies and Cougars have offered several of the same prospects, the battle for Renfro's commitment appears to be coming down to a head-to-head battle for the talented two-way star.

Dawgman.com will continue to keep tabs on Renfro's progress through the recruiting process and we will update news on him as it happens.
