Lawler: Im open, widely open

Kenny Lawler still considers himself a soft verbal commitment to Arizona State but the Upland, Calif., wide receiver is definitely looking around, going to camps and thinking about all the options in his recruitment.
"Right now it's a soft verbal," Lawler said at the Dana Hills Air Strike Passing Tournament this past weekend. "I'm still open to everything so that's where I'm at right now with everything.
"I'm open, widely open."

Arizona State, Arizona, Nebraska, Oregon State, SMU and UCLA have offered Lawler, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound prospect who was arguably the top receiver at the Air Strike tournament.
He camped at USC on Sunday and was at Nebraska's camp on Monday. He told Rivals.com that the Huskers are high on his list after his trip to Lincoln.
The four-star recruit will also see SMU this summer when his 7-on-7 team travels to Dallas for the Badger Sport finals. In the last few weeks, Lawler has also visited Oregon and Oregon State during his trip to the Eugene NIKE Camp.
"Oregon had all the top-notch facilities," Lawler said.
"I liked Oregon State a lot. (Wide receivers) coach (Brent) Brennan is a good guy. We got to hang out a little bit and coach (Mike) Riley is great, too. I like that program up there."
The USC trip was especially important for Lawler, ranked as the No. 44 wide receiver nationally, because he's hoping for an offer from the Trojans and he said UCLA has crept into his recruitment mainly because he likes that it's close to home and his family could come see him play.
"I'm working for an offer from USC," Lawler said. "USC is very local, my family could come see me play and it's a school I like.
"I like UCLA too because they are local and my family can come there, too. I like them a lot."
