Matt Morin has been hearing from numerous schools and last week Colorado State quarterbacks coach Daren Wilkinson stopped by Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral to watch the strong-armed lefty throw the ball.
Soon after, Morin had his first offer and he said Friday at the Elite 11 regional workout at Stanford that he's going to seriously consider Colorado State moving forward.
"On Monday they came down to our practice and he watched me and then that night he gave me a call and told me straight out they're going to give me a scholarship offer," Morin said.

"I'm very thankful for that because it's an awesome program and all I've heard is good things about the offense. I'm really excited about the offense."
Washington, USC and Miami are the three other programs involved with Morin, a 6-foot-2, 217-pound prospect who threw for 1,719 yards with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions in his junior season.
Since no other offers have come in yet Morin said he plans to be patient throughout the process this spring. He'd prefer to make an early decision but doesn't want to rush anything just yet.
"Right now I'm waiting a little bit to see how spring goes and then I'll just see what happens after that," Morin said.
"I want to make my decision a little bit early but whatever I have to do to get in the right spot I'll do it because I won't rush anything if I don't have to. I'll just wait if I have to but I'd like to make an early decision."
Coming up next for Morin, who's been busy with camps and showcases all spring, are the USC and Boise State camps in June.
He's also been getting positive feedback from Miami tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator Brennan Carroll so Morin wants to see if anything happens with the Hurricanes. USC remains the favorite so his camp performance could be crucial.
"I was talking to coach Carroll from Miami and he's really impressed with me," Morin said. "I'm really thankful that they're even considering an offer for me and hopefully I get an offer from them.
"I've been talking to USC a lot, too. I love that school. Right now it's No. 1 on the board so if I get an offer from them I'd probably commit right there."
