Marcus Rios was one of the best defensive backs at last weekend's Stanford NIKE Camp which means recruiting won't slow down for the Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks prospect who committed to Boise State on March 1.
Teams just won't give up on Rios, one of the top prospects in all of Northern California.
The Broncos are still in good position with Rios, a 6-foot, 170-pound four-star recruit, but he admitted that USC and Washington are still pursuing him non-stop and that other teams are staying in touch as well. There is a good chance Rios will take some visits leading into his senior season.
"I'm still a solid commit to Boise State," Rios said. "Other schools have shown interest like Washington and USC. Those two have been really heavy on me.
"I'm going to stay a solid commit to Boise. That's the only school that I really love right now but like I said a lot of other schools are showing interest."
Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Utah, Washington State, Cal Poly and Sacramento State have also offered Rios, who was used on offense, defense and special teams at Cosumnes Oaks last season.
He was one of the best defensive backs - which also included Shaq Thompson and Tee Shepard - this past weekend.
Recruiting will be hectic and Rios knows it.
"It will continue to be busy," Rios said.
"I'm going to keep all my options open. I'm going to be visiting a couple campuses and going to a lot of camps this summer."
The first place Rios wants to see is Washington, which continues to interest him mainly because the coaching staff is still heavily recruiting him.
Trips to USC and UCLA could also happen. While he remains committed to Boise State, there are other programs that pique Rios' interest and they won't back off.
"Those schools strike a lot of interest in me and I have a lot of interest in them," Rios said. "I'd like to visit those places this summer."
