Penny waiting for Pac-12 offers

Rashaad Penny had a big game against Diamond Bar, Calif., last weekend and the three-star hopes his recruitment picks up even more.
The Norwalk, Calif., standout who can play running back or defensive back already has offers from Fresno State, San Jose State, San Diego State, Nevada, New Mexico State and a few others but he's hoping a few Pac-12 teams get involved soon.
"I played great," Penny said. "I had 149 yards, three total touchdowns and I had an interception on defense. We beat Diamond Bar and we were locking down those receivers."
Mainly, the two Pac-12 programs Penny is waiting on are Utah and Washington. UCLA is showing preliminary interest as well but the Norwalk standout said he's getting a better feel from the Utes and Huskies early in his senior season.
"Utah and Washington are highly interested and UCLA is too," Penny said.
"Utah said they're just going to have me as an athlete. Washington is going to have me as a defensive back and UCLA is still kind of open."
Fresno State is the latest offer for Penny, a 6-foot, 180-pound prospect who said he wants to wait until much later in the recruiting process to make his decision.
Playing running back or defensive back is an option for Penny, who's hopeful those three Pac-12 programs get in the mix soon. The Norwalk standout said he wants to wait and see what happens in the coming months.
"I'm taking my time," Penny said. "I want to see who comes after me."
