Pac-12 calls Plattenburg

One of the top performers at the Passing Down 7on7 Tournament last weekend in Fontana, Calif., was John Plattenburg, who could see his recruitment really take off in the coming months.
Heading into the tournament, Boise State was a slight leader because he had the best relationship with the coaching staff and really liked what the program has been doing in recent years.
"Probably Boise is sticking out more than the other ones I have now," Plattenburg said last week.
"I really like the coaching staff and I really like the atmosphere that they bring and how they talk to me about the program. I have a better relationship with them."
Boise State is still one of the favorites but Washington and Utah offered this week and that could change things for Plattenburg, who also has offers from Colorado State, Nevada and San Diego State.
That's the thing with the Corona (Calif.) Centennial defensive back - he could be picking up many more offers into his senior season so it's still tough to gauge which programs stand out the most.
After solid performances at numerous 7on7 events in the last month, two Pac-12 offers have come in and Plattenburg, who was originally a running back in high school, said he's especially excited about Washington because of his budding relationship with defensive backs coach Keith Heyward.
There is another Pac-12 school that highly interests Plattenburg, too, and that is Cal. The Corona Centennial standout has already visited Berkeley and he gets the feeling the Golden Bears are highly interested in him as his recruitment moves forward.
"I came from Cal on the junior day and coach (Randy) Stewart and I had a really good conversation," Plattenburg said. "He was talking that they were interested but he wants to keep building the relationship."
Rivals.com rates Plattenburg as the No. 49 cornerback in the 2014 class.
