Mark Andrews has already landed eight offers and for the 2014 wide receiver from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain the recruiting process has been a complete surprise.
UCLA, Michigan, Nebraska, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Ohio State and Utah have offered the 6-foot-6, 225-pound prospect who said he wants to stay at receiver and not move to tight end.
Some others like USC, Missouri and Oregon are showing interest and for Andrews the early attention is welcome but definitely a little stunning.

"It's a big shocker," Andrews said. "I didn't expect it to happen this early. It's basically a dream for me. I'm just taking it all in and I'm happy right now.
"I'm definitely going to just take my time and keep an open mind about everything.
It's definitely still receiver. I want to be a receiver in the future. It's very important to stay at that position."
Because he has not even started his junior season yet, Andrews said he wants to take things especially slow in the recruiting process.
There are many offers to consider and other programs could get involved at any time. The only visit he has planned so far is to Arizona State this Friday and then he'll soon be at Arizona for a passing league where he can tour the facilities.
No other trips are planned yet. No favorites, either, since it's so early.
"I'm going to take a visit down to ASU this Friday," Andrews said. "After that I don't have any set plans to take unofficial visits besides U of A I'm going to for a passing league and I'll be able to see the facilities."
