Desean Holmes has three favorites but the four-star wide receiver said he wants to take official visits before making a decision.
The Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany standout who briefly transferred to Pasadena (Calif.) Muir said USC, Oklahoma and Washington State stand out the most in his recruitment.
Many others are still pursuing Holmes, including Arizona and numerous Pac-12 schools, but the four-star said those three programs definitely look the best at this point.
"USC made it, Washington State and Oklahoma is the top three for sure," Holmes said.
"USC is close to home and you can't go wrong with that. Oklahoma had a great season last year. They're always good and they're always great at receiver.
"With Washington State, they started 17 freshmen last year so the coaches aren't afraid to play freshmen. I definitely like that."
The 5-foot-9, 170-pound prospect who's rated as the No. 21 receiver in the 2015 class by Rivals.com said his interest with USC especially continues to grow since the Trojans are changing their offense this season.
Going to a more spread look appeals to Holmes, rated No. 177 in the 2015 class, and the Alemany standout said he's had plenty of conversations with coach Steve Sarkisian and position coach Tee Martin recently.
"It's been going pretty good," Holmes said. "This year they're going spread so things have opened up with USC a little bit more. I've talked a lot with coach Sark and coach Tee and I have been talking it up a lot.
"I'm just going to wait and take the officials and then go from there."
Arizona State, Cal, Fresno State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah and Washington are some of the other programs that have offered the four-star prospect.
