Penny looks to build off season

Rashaad Penny put up huge numbers in his junior season but the Norwalk, Calif., running back has not seen his recruitment take off yet.
That could change at any time, though, because the 6-foot, 185-pound prospect said he's hearing from numerous schools including UCLA, Notre Dame and Alabama and he's looking for as much exposure as possible this off-season.
Penny, who has an early offer from UNLV, is excited about how things could turn out and is hopeful it will be positive in the coming months.
"They're just sending letters," Penny said. "They've just been sending recruiting mail and UCLA keeps in contact with me about once a week.
"I'm just working out a lot. I'm getting bigger, stronger and faster and I'm really just getting ready for the season."
If his senior season compares to his junior campaign, then Penny could see his recruitment get really busy.
The Norwalk standout rushed 1,872 yards and 30 touchdowns on 176 attempts in his junior season averaging more than 10 yards per carry.
Penny, who will compete at the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour on March 10 in the Los Angeles area, was also used in the passing game and he finished with 383 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
Camps are going to be big for Penny, who doesn't have any junior day visits scheduled, for more exposure leading to next season.
"I am looking forward to doing a lot of camps this off-season," Penny said. "That will be important."
