Arizona State was the first school to offer Cameron Countryman and now the Beverly Hills, Calif., wide receiver is hearing from a few other programs and believes things might really pick up over the spring evaluation period.
UCLA and Idaho are two schools showing more interest in Countryman, a 6-foot, 170-pound prospect who finished with 24 receptions for 616 yards and five touchdowns last season.
Countryman recently had a long talk with Idaho wide receivers coach Luther Carr and the Vandals could be close to offering.
"I recently got off the phone with coach Carr at the University of Idaho and we were talking for about half an hour and he was really interested in recruiting me," Countryman said. "He's supposed to get back to me soon.
"I actually think they're close. (Carr) said he wanted to offer me but just wanted to look at another piece of game film. I think they're pretty close to offering me."
How the Bruins got involved in Countryman's recruitment is unique since his father apparently ran into new UCLA offensive coordinator Mike Johnson at a restaurant and talked about his son during the meeting.
According to Countryman, Johnson said he's supposed to stop by Beverly Hills sometime in May. That's especially exciting to Countryman since UCLA is one of his favorite programs.
"My dad ran into their offensive coordinator at a restaurant and started talking to him about me and he told my dad he was coming to the school in May," Countryman said. "That was the first thing I heard from UCLA so I'm really excited about that. It's one of my top schools to go to.
"So I heard from UCLA, Montana again and a lot of people are saying they're coming to see me in the second and third week of May but I haven't gotten any offers since ASU. I've gotten a lot of interest from other schools and I hope the ASU offer kind of sparks other offers once people get down here."
Oregon, Arizona, Cal and Harvard are also interested in Countryman, who doesn't plan to do any football-related activities until after track season.
