Greg Hoyd is having a strong junior season and the Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta linebacker has seen his recruitment get busier, too.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect said two SEC schools have recently gotten involved and he's encouraged more interest could come as the season continues.
"I got a few letters from Vanderbilt and Tennessee this weekend," Hoyd said. "I talked to the Vanderbilt coach but Tennessee was a complete surprise and that came out of the blue.
"They're both just trying to build a relationship early on."
So far, Hoyd has landed offers from Duke and New Mexico State and he said UCLA has shown lots of interest.
Arizona State, Cal, Oregon State, Penn State, Purdue and Washington State among others have been in contact.
Recruiting is going along well but Hoyd is more focused on finishing his junior season on a strong note.
Vista Murrieta is currently 7-0 and could definitely finish the regular season undefeated with three games remaining.
Getting more junior season highlight tape to college coaches is crucial this off-season to see if more offers come in.
"I'm just trying to get more exposure to get my name out there," Hoyd said. "After the season and during the summer I want to take trips to schools outside of California and I want to go to a lot of camps.
"Teams in the SEC and ACC I definitely want to see them. I like how they play ball out there."
