Kenny Lawler committed to Arizona State in mid-February but the Upland, Calif., wide receiver has made it no secret that he plans to consider other options.
With Washington and Nebraska recently offering, Lawler said at last weekend's Los Angeles NIKE Camp that he's considering trips to both schools.
"Nebraska has been sending me letters and everything, showing interest, and then they just offered me the other day," Lawler said.
"I'm thinking about going out there this summer and checking out the campus. They said they're installing a new spread offense so I'm looking to see how that goes."
Lawler, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound prospect, said he's thinking about taking one of his five official visits to Washington. He's been talking to secondary coach Demetrice Martin and wide receivers coach Jimmie Dougherty about the Huskies.
"Washington is a good school too in the Pac-10," Lawler said. "I like it a lot. I'm thinking about maybe making it one of my five official visits so we'll see what it is when I get up there.
"I was talking to coach Martin, the defensive backs coach up there, and then I was talking to the wide receivers coach so I just got a message to call them and I called and they offered."
More schools are coming after Lawler, who recently picked up an SMU offer as well. He said Kentucky and South Florida are showing more interest and could be the next two programs to offer.
In his junior season, Lawler finished with 44 receptions for 887 yards and nine touchdowns. Not only did he shine at the NIKE Camp but also at the recent Badger Sports 7-on-7 event in Las Vegas.
Lawler said he plans to stay committed to Arizona State but will consider all his other options as his recruitment continues.
"I'm going to stay committed but I'm open to any other schools," Lawler said. "I plan on taking all five visits so my eyes are wide open to the other schools."
