One the fastest rising prospects on the West Coast is Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame standout Shane Horton (6-2, 205, 4.4). He received two offers in the last week and it could more before this recruiting season is done.
Washington offered Horton a scholarship last week and UNLV offered him Tuesday. Ohio, Utah State and Wyoming were the first schools to offer.
Horton has set visits to both schools. He will visit UNLV on December 15th and will head to Seattle to visit UW on January 5th. It is not official yet but Horton has a visit in the works with Oregon on the 19th of January.

"I'm going to take my visits and get to know more about the schools," Horton said. "They are all pretty schools from what I know of them."
"I took an unofficial visit to Oregon," Horton said. "I should be hearing more from them because my coach just sent them my senior tape."
Most schools are recruiting him as a safety, but Washington wants to bring him in as a quarterback first and if that doesn't work out then they would move him to another position. Oregon likes him as a wide receiver.
Horton had a great game in a losing effort to Long Beach (Calif.) Poly the quarter-final. He racked up 10 tackles and caught seven passes for 115 yards and one touchdown.
Horton was a jack-of-all-trades his senior season as he played five games at quarterback and the rest of the season he played wide receiver and safety.
From his quarterback position, Horton threw for 473 yards and eight touchdowns. He rushed for 636 yards and scored seven rushing touchdowns.
As a receiver, Horton caught 36 passes for 635 yards and had seven receiving touchdowns.
On defense, Horton picked off two passes his first game and the opposition avoided him the rest of the season.
