Brayden Lenius played the game of his life last week in West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade's upset victory over Gardena (Calif.) Serra.
Numerous college coaches told him to play hard and good things would happen. They did. And now the under-the-radar senior wide receiver just landed another offer from Utah.
"I've been hearing from a bunch of schools," Lenius said. "They just said to play hard in this game and good things will happen."
Utah, Boise State and Idaho were the three programs showing the most interest in Lenius, a 6-foot-5, 214-pound recruit who already had an offer from San Diego State.
The offer from Utah is definitely big but Lenius said after the game that things are just starting to take shape in his recruitment so there are no favorites yet.
"There's no leader," Lenius said. "Not yet. I want to see how it goes."
Lenius was virtually unstoppable in Chaminade's upset victory over Serra last weekend. His size creates mismatch problems for cornerbacks and he has nice speed to separate himself.
Miami quarterback commit Brad Kaaya found Lenius over and over and Serra's defense could not stop him.
Originally from Canada, Lenius said the win was extra special since Chaminade lost by 36 points to Serra earlier in the season and lost in the playoffs to the same team last season when he was still north of the border.
"Coming down from Canada and I watched this game last year on TV, I thought it would be amazing to come and play in this game," Lenius said. "I'm actually here and we won. I played the game of my life. These are my brothers for life even though I'm far from home."
