After picking up an early offer from Washington, Chino (Calif.) Don Lugo athlete A.J. Pickens landed his second offer from another Pac 10 school earlier this week.
Pickens, 5-11, 165 pounds is a talented two way player who could play receiver or cornerback in college. Most schools like him for receiver although a few schools like him as an athlete.
After his initial offer from the Huskies, things have picked up quite a bit for Pickens.
â€œArizona State just offered me,â€ Pickens said. â€œI got the offer letter in the mail yesterday and was totally shocked and surprised. They said they had just watched my film and decided to offer and Iâ€™m definitely going to check out ASU this summer on an unofficial visit.
â€œIâ€™ve heard a lot of good things about ASU and my god brother Rodney Cox, plays there and he really likes it a lot. I was already considering ASU, they have always been in my top five but now with the offer, Iâ€™m even more excited about them.
â€œI also got a verbal from Arizona and theyâ€™re recruiting me as an athlete. They came by my school this week and when I check out ASU, Iâ€™m going to take a visit to Arizona as well. Oregon State also came by and Iâ€™m still hearing a lot from Fresno State.
â€œMy dad played at Fresno State and I like them a lot. Iâ€™m going to visit there this summer. Iâ€™m actually planning to take a lot of unofficial visits. In addition to the two Arizona schools, I want to check out Washington, Oregon State and Fresno State.
â€œI donâ€™t have a leader but if I had to name a top five, it would be Washington, Fresno State, Cal, ASU and USC and thatâ€™s in no order. Iâ€™m in no hurry to commit anywhere right now and I still plan to take all my official visits during the season before I make a commitment anywhere.â€
