Greg Hoyd is still focused on Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta's playoff run but the 2014 linebacker has also seen a lot of activity in recruiting as well.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect already has offers from Utah, Duke and New Mexico State and then a bunch of teams are showing interest.
No favorites have emerged yet as things are still a little scattered for Hoyd but the new intrigue is good since Vanderbilt, UCLA, Nebraska, Oregon State, Oregon and Ole Miss have all reached out.
All those schools and a few others appeal to the 2014 prospect.
"Ole Miss just called and said they're going to start evaluating," Hoyd said. "I'm happy about that because it's an SEC school.
"[Oregon] is a winning team and I want to go where we're going to win. I like to leave a mark.
"I like traditional schools, too. Ole Miss and the SEC schools are all about tradition. I like Notre Dame as well. They always play the same way, a hard, physical game. It's the same way with Stanford and I like them, too."
Hoyd and his Vista Murrieta team face Corona (Calif.) Centennial in the state playoffs on Friday night.
They're coming off an impressive shutout win against Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., last week and have not lost a game this season. Most have been comfortable victories or even blowouts.
Hoyd is excited about where his recruitment is headed and also how his team is playing late in the season.
"It was a huge win," Hoyd said about the Rancho Cucamonga game. "We shut them out. We didn't think that was going to happen but the defense was fired up and it was our game.
"I'm happy for the win and happy for the team. People are putting their stuff away now but we have another week of this. We made our mark right there."
