Greg Hoyd had a productive junior season and the 2014 linebacker from Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta is starting to see his recruitment get busier.
So far, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect has landed offers from Duke, New Mexico State and Utah and he said many others are showing interest.
Hoyd believes his recruitment will pick up even more after National Signing Day.

Northwestern and Boise State have invited Hoyd to its junior days and Arizona and Cal are showing more interest. The two Pac-12 programs were recently at Hoyd's school.
"They can't talk to me yet so they'll wait until after signing day," Hoyd said. "I got invited to some camps and some junior days so I'm excited about all that. I'll have a busy schedule this spring."
Next up is a trip to the UCLA junior day and Hoyd is definitely looking forward to that one. He grew up watching the Bruins and it's the hometown team so the 2014 standout is highly interested in that trip.
"That could be really exciting," Hoyd said. "I'll get to see a school that's close to me. I grew up watching them and they're coming off a great season.
"I want to really meet the coaches and start building a better relationship there with an unofficial visit. I'd love to have an offer from a school close to home."
Since it's so early in his recruitment, Hoyd said he remains open to all programs. The Vista Murrieta prospect said he needs to keep an open mind in recruiting because his best option could be a school that's far away.
Hoyd remains wide open to all programs as the off-season continues.
"I'm thinking about all of them," Hoyd said. "They are far away but sometimes you have to go that far to get that scholarship offer. You have to do what's right to get what you want.
"I'm getting hit up every day from schools saying they'll be in touch. It could be big. I grew up seeing guys get all this attention from coaches and all these guys older than me so it's my year to get a chance to get those looks and I have to take advantage of it."
