Troy Bacon excelled at the recent Army National Combine in San Antonio and the 2014 offensive lineman from Apple Valley, Calif., has seen his recruitment get much busier.
The last few weeks have been hectic, to say the least.
"Lately things have been skyrocketing," Bacon said. "James Cregg from USC came last week, Peter Sirmon from Washington came down and Stanford came down and we talked for a long time.
"Other than that, it's the same colleges and I noticed things have been picking up lately with more letters, more e-mails and more phone calls. It's been outrageous."
The 6-foot-4, 280-pound prospect is thrilled by the new attention.
Bacon reports an early offer from TCU and he said programs from across the country have been showing interest.
Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Duke, Florida State, Oregon, Washington, Washington State and many others have sent recruiting mail and Bacon is excited about where it all could lead.
He's planning for a big off-season of camp stops and unofficial visits and is hopeful that more offers could be on the way.
"It's very encouraging," Bacon said. "It's very eye-opening to know some of the best schools and some of the most prestigious schools out there are taking a look.
"It's something to really consider. I'm enjoying it a lot. It's not something that's making me cocky. It's opening my eyes. It's giving me that mental aspect to push harder."
Bacon recently received an invitation to Washington's junior day and others are expected as well. The Apple Valley standout has not scheduled any trips yet.
