Chino, Calif., defensive back and running back Shawn Oatis , a 6-foot-0 and 205 pounder, is one of the West Coast's top athletes. And as such, it is not surprising he has plenty of colleges in hot pursuit, including Midwest powers Ohio State and Notre Dame.
"I haven't really narrowed it down yet," Oatis said. "Right now I think I'm at 11 offers."
"I can tell you that Notre Dame and Ohio State will definitely be two of my official visits."
"I've already taken two unofficial visits, UCLA and Stanford. I'm definitely going to take a look at Arizona. More than likely I'll take a trip to Oregon. I'm debating on Washington."
"I'm trying not to limit my options. I'm trying to keep it open."
Why has Oatis decided to take official visits to Notre Dame and Ohio State?
"When me and my dad looked at some schools, I definitely thought Ohio State and Notre Dame are going to be competetive. I've liked those two since I was little."
Oatis made 69 tackles and intercepted two passes during his junior season. He also rushed for 1300 yards and scored 13 times as he was named all-CIF.
