LAS VEGAS - Nine schools have now offered Kevon Seymour, a hard-hitting cornerback from Pasadena (Calif.) Muir, and the 6-foot, 170-pound recruit said here at the Badger Sports Elite 7-on-7 event that Washington is his favorite.
The main reason is because Seymour likes secondary coach Demetrice Martin so much.
"I like coach Demetrice," Seymour said. "I like that dude. The coach is great and I like how they're coming at me. He's a real guy.

"He tells me what's right, what's wrong. He's not just giving me the right side. He's giving me both sides of things and keeping it real. I ask questions, too, so I like when coaches are being honest with me."
Nebraska is the latest offer for Seymour, who sparked the Huskers' interest in an interesting way. Some coaches were out to see players at La Mirada, Calif., in a playoff game against Muir this past season and Seymour happened to score four times in a 33-14 victory.
Soon after that, Seymour received questionnaires and recruiting letters from Nebraska, which offered in the last couple days.
"I was excited about that," said Seymour, who played here with back-to-back champs B2G Sports.
"I was really happy to hear I have that offer from Nebraska. I might get offered by Boise sometime soon and I have to call the coach on Monday. I've been talking to Tennessee and Florida, too."
Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, New Mexico State, Oregon State, San Jose State and UCLA have also offered.
Getting more offers is certainly preferable - especially with Boise State, Tennessee and Florida now showing interest - but Seymour said it would make his decision even more difficult.
"That would put a lot of pressure on my shoulders," he said.
