Steffon McKnight is a 2016 prospect who has emerged in Southern California recently and on Thursday he landed his first Pac-12 offer.
The San Diego (Calif.) Mira Mesa wide receiver talked with UCLA coach Jim Mora and the Bruins offered the 6-foot-1, 165-pound standout.
Landing the UCLA offer is definitely big to McKnight, who has also been offered by San Diego State and Idaho early on.
"He told me that he watched my film and he thinks that I have speed, hands, agility and he thinks that I'm going to be great the next level," McKnight said of Mora.
Prior to his UCLA offer, the 2016 prospect said San Diego State had been recruiting him the hardest and that coaching staff has been making a push early in his recruitment.
McKnight has been mainly talking with San Diego State assistant LeCharls McDaniel and said he's definitely interested.
"San Diego State is the one that has shown the most interest," McKnight said.
"Coach McDaniels has talked to me a couple times and I've had one of their recruiting coaches come talk to me a few times. I've only seen the University of Idaho coach one time and that was in my freshman year."
Nevada has also shown early interest and McKnight said he especially is looking at one other Pac-12 team as his recruitment picks up.
"I most definitely like Oregon of course like all the West Coast kids," McKnight said. "I just want to go to a school where I could play big ball. It doesn't really matter where."
