Chandler Hawkins is staying patient.
The three-star defensive back from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco is still hearing from numerous schools and is taking some visits, but major offers still have not come in even after a tremendous senior season that ended in a state title.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect committed to Air Force in August, but many other programs have shown a lot of interest and he's hopeful in the weeks before signing day that teams will offer.
Schools from the Pac-12, Big 10, SEC and other conferences have reached out but haven't offered yet.
"There's nothing really too different," Hawkins said. "The schools that still really have interest are Vanderbilt, Nevada and I'm talking to my coaches to see what the latest is too with Purdue and UCLA. I'm taking a trip to Villanova on the 17th and I'm taking a trip to Navy on the 31st."
There are only a few weeks to go before Hawkins has to make a final decision.
While he remains committed to Air Force, the St. John Bosco standout said he remains open to all programs and is anxious to see if other teams get involved.
With the dead period over, Hawkins thinks things could pick up especially with the teams that have shown interest for months.
"There aren't a lot of new things that have come up," Hawkins said. "It's just those main schools really and me being patient. I'm just waiting to see if those other schools are going to offer."
