Basketball has been the main focus for San Marin (Calif.) Novato quarterback Manny Wilkins but as the spring gets closer he's looking at scheduling some visits.
Arizona State has made a serious push for the 6-foot-3, 185-pound prospect who shined at the Oakland Elite 11 and NIKE Camp last spring and he said Utah State, Oregon, Washington and Cal are pushing a lot as well.
The Sun Devils have made up some ground, though, and Wilkins said he's definitely going to visit Tempe this off-season.

"I kind of connected with coach (Mike) Norvell about a month ago and we've been talking a couple times a week now," Wilkins said. "That's a really cool school, too.
"A lot of schools said they want to see me this summer at camp. The coaches especially coach Norvell has been talking to me because my tape is pretty good. He said they loved watching it and they want to get me down in person and meet me in person."
Utah State has been heavily involved with Wilkins, who has seen that team play when they visited San Jose State this past season, and he said Oregon, Cal and now Washington are in the mix as well.
For Wilkins, who is yet to pick up any offers, summer camps are going to be important for him to show coaches what he's capable of as a quarterback.
The Pac-12 interest has picked up and Wilkins said other teams are getting involved, too, but many coaches want to see him in person, see him throw in person and then determine whether they want to offer.
"I have some visits planned and then I'll try to do a couple more," Wilkins said. "It's going to be pretty busy."
