Brayden Lenius has had a few big weeks.
The West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade wide receiver dominated against Gardena Serra and then played well against Newhall Hart, helping his team to the state bowl championship this weekend.
Not only is the end of his senior season going well but the 6-foot-5, 214-pound prospect is seeing his recruitment pick up in a big way with recent offers from Utah and Washington State. San Diego State had offered months ago.
Utah offered shortly after he was one of the best players in Chaminade's upset win over Serra two weeks ago, a revenge victory because Chaminade lost to that team by 36 points in the regular season. Washington State came through in the last couple days.
"Before the offer (the Utah coaches) reached out," Lenius said. "I was talking to them quite a bit. I kept communicating with them and they came to practice on Tuesday and I talked to the offensive coordinator.
"They said they saw my highlight film and then they liked me in practice. The Serra game was big, too. They just liked me and said they were really impressed and want me at their school."
Because his senior season is still going on, Lenius said he doesn't have his main focus on recruiting. That will happen after this weekend and he should be planning visits after the New Year.
Minnesota, Colorado, Miami and Idaho have also reached out to the West Hills Chaminade wide receiver so he's waiting to see if other schools get involved in the coming weeks.
"I'm going to wait until after the state championship and see what happens," Lenius said. "I'll be doing my visits in January."
