List for Todd keeps growing
The surprises keep coming for Dallis Todd as offers from major programs across the country keep arriving and the La Mirada, Calif., wide receiver said many of them are completely unexpected.
Mississippi State is the latest offer for the 6-foot-5, 205-pound four-star recruit who reclassified from the 2013 to the 2014 class and has seen his recruitment take off in unimaginable ways.
Last week, Notre Dame, Miami, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Washington State and Wyoming offered. Offers have been steadily flowing in for a long time and Todd said he's taken aback by it all.
"It's been really busy," Todd said.
"It was all a surprise last week. The offers just came in out of nowhere with the Notre Dame one, the Miami one, all the offers I got this past week were really out of nowhere."
Todd, who finished with more than 1,000 receiving yards last season, had planned to narrow down his list to a more manageable level since so many offers have come in but the La Mirada standout isn't prepared to do it just yet.
"I still want to wait a little bit," said Todd, who's expected to visit Oklahoma this weekend. "Not long but I do want to wait a little bit. It will definitely be before my senior season."
Thirty programs have now offered Todd but the two local Pac-12 teams - USC and UCLA - are still only minimally recruiting him.
Neither has offered yet and while Todd has been invited to some practices and spring games, the Bruins and Trojans are not all that involved in his recruitment at this time.
Todd also said it's a tad early to name leaders.
"I've talked with USC and UCLA, not a lot, but we've talked," Todd said. "USC has sent me some letters and invited me to their spring game and some practices. It's been the same with UCLA but it's not like it's been a lot."
