Deontay Greenberry was arguably the biggest surprise at the recent Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 in Las Vegas and now the Fresno (Calif.) Washington Union wide receiver is seeing his recruitment perk up.
Washington State is the latest offer for Greenberry, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound prospect who also has Arizona State and Washington on his list.
He's expected to attend Notre Dame's upcoming junior day and getting an offer from the Irish would be big because he wants to play college football with his cousin, Tee Shepard, who has already committed to play in South Bend.

"I'm working on Notre Dame," Greenberry said.
"That would be a huge one for me. (Shepard) is my cousin and we're planning to go to the same school regardless. He likes it a lot and I'm going to take a junior day visit to there to visit the campus."
No other unofficial visits are scheduled for Greenberry, who was recently invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl following his performance in Las Vegas. He's looking to get some invites to junior days though.
In his junior season, he finished with 66 receptions for 1,208 yards and eight touchdowns. He also rushed for two scores. Greenberry said he's also hearing from Miami, USC and a few other schools.
Recruiting should pick up even more soon because Greenberry proved in Las Vegas that he's a legitimate national prospect. He was simply unstoppable during Saturday's round-robin play and at times almost toyed with opposing defensive backs.
Greenberry said he could have done better during the playoff rounds but he was generally happy with his showing at the Badger event.
"I liked my performance out in Vegas but I thought I could have contributed a little more offense on Sunday," Greenberry said. "Maybe we could have come out with a win but I was pretty happy with how I played."
