Brandon Dawkins is in the spotlight at Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian and that's just how the 2014 quarterback likes it.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound prospect has already been offered by Notre Dame and Utah and said he's getting "tons of mail" from some of the nation's best programs including Alabama, LSU and Oregon.
"Mail has been coming in like crazy," Dawkins said. "LSU has been sending me a lot. Oregon sent me a few. Alabama is still sending me like 16 letters a week."

Dawkins, who has helped lead Oaks Christian to a 4-0 record against some outstanding opponents, plans to take an unofficial visit to Notre Dame when it hosts Stanford in mid-October.
It could be a revealing trip for the 2014 prospect who said he's really excited to see the campus, get a better feel for the school and the football program and soak in the atmosphere since it might be his future home.
"I haven't really seen many schools yet so I don't know what to expect," Dawkins said. "I'm going in there blind, just going in there to check out the school and to check out the campus. I want to see it for myself. It's going to be a really big game and it's probably going to be sold out so I'm excited.
"That's going to be a big game especially with Stanford beating USC. I'll get the whole college experience and it should be fun."
For the next few weeks anyway, Dawkins will be solely focused on leading his Oaks Christian club to more wins.
The game has slowed down for him since last season especially since he did a lot of homework leading into his junior year so Dawkins is excited to keep putting up big numbers - and maybe land a few more offers.
"All the teams we've played so far like Granite Bay, Del Oro and Chaminade are great teams and we've beaten them all so we're playing well and it feels good," Dawkins said.
"It's definitely easier. Pretty much this whole off-season all I've worked on is reading coverages so once I got them down, that's what I had trouble with last year, now I can go through my progressions and reads. It helps with the offense so everything is going well this year."
