Michael Lazarus had an outstanding performance at the Rivals Camp Series by Under Armour in Los Angeles a couple weekends ago and his recruitment has gotten much busier.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound inside linebacker from Berkeley, Calif., said two Pac-12 teams along with Boise State have stepped things up already and he's encouraged about how the recruiting process is going.
"I've talked to UCLA again," Lazarus said. "They picked back up on me. They're saying I could pretty soon get an offer from them.

"Boise State is also talking to me more. The coach wrote me two letters and he said they want me at junior day and they really like me and want me to be a part of the program. I'm also talking more to Arizona State.
"My recruitment has been picking up. It's been going through the roof now."
Cal was the first offer for Lazarus, who said he's trying to get to the upcoming Arizona State junior day but that might be an issue. Working on getting to Boise State is also a priority for the Northern California prospect.
"I'm a little busy but I'm trying to make my way to a few junior days, the Arizona State one and the Boise State one," Lazarus said.
"Those are the two for sure but I'm not sure if I can make ASU but I'm going to talk to my mother to see if I can make the Boise State one."
The renewed interest from UCLA is important. Lazarus has already taken one trip to Westwood and he's definitely high on the Bruins even though an offer has not come through yet.
"That's big for me," Lazarus said.
"I've always liked UCLA. I took my unofficial down there in the summer and I fell in love with the whole campus and the program and I like the coaching staff. UCLA is big."
