Denzell Dotson recently picked up an offer from Arizona State and while the Glendale (Ariz.) Cactus offensive guard is excited about the Sun Devils he doesn't plan to make a quick decision and instead will wait things out for a little longer to see if other programs get involved.
Dotson said the new Arizona State offer is big but he has a trip scheduled to Georgia Tech in mid-July and many other schools are showing interest so the 6-foot-2, 300-pound prospect plans to hold off making any decisions.
"It's pretty big for me," Dotson said of the Sun Devils offer. "It's one of the bigger offers I have and it draws more attention toward me. It means more to know that I'm getting noticed more than I was before. It's good to be noticed by more schools that like me and how I play.

"I'm not really picking any favorites. I'm kind of weighing what every school has to offer and I'm going to make a big checklist. At the end of the day, I have to figure out what best fits me and what I'm most comfortable with. That's what it's going to come down to."
Arizona State, Washington State, Wyoming, Montana and Northern Colorado have now offered Dotson, who's rated No. 42 at offensive guard by Rivals.com.
He performed well at the Elite Linemen Challenge in Las Vegas this spring and said he's seen his recruitment take off since that time.
Indiana, Missouri, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Michigan, Washington, Oregon and Nebraska have all started to show interest so Dotson wants to see how things turn out with those programs.
Dotson said it's a waiting game in his recruitment and since things are looking better all the time he's going to be patient making his commitment.
"The list is getting bigger but it's kind of a waiting game," Dotson said. "Those schools have been contacting me but they didn't say I'd get an offer. If I visited that might be a different story and I could get an offer. We'll see how it goes."
