Marcus McMaryion has received a bunch of good news recently and it could translate to new offers soon for the Dinuba, Calif., quarterback who looked good at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles and the Passing Down 7on7 tournament.
Cal assistant coach Barry Sacks stopped by Dinuba on Tuesday and told McMaryion some positive things as his recruitment moves forward.
"They kind of gave me the story that they're really interested," McMaryion said.

"Coach Sacks came by and he was the one that recruited Colin Kaepernick and he was saying that he really likes my game and compared to him I am a lot better than Kaepernick was at the same age.
"He really spoke highly of me and wants to see me at camp. They want to get me up there on an unofficial."
Last week, Fresno State was at Dinuba to see McMaryion, who already has an offer from Arizona, and another offer could be close.
It will probably have to wait until the three-star quarterback works out at Fresno State this summer but the coaching staff intimated that they're very interested in getting more involved in his recruitment. McMaryion is expected to participate in a 7on7 event there in early June.
"They basically said they're very interested and they're kind of hinting toward an offer but they said they don't see any sense in offering me when they know I'm going to be at their 7on7," McMaryion said.
"They want to see me throw first before they make a move like that. They were saying that's what they usually do. They said they like what they see and hopefully right after the camp they could offer me."
Location could be a key for Fresno State since McMaryion lives about 30 minutes south of campus. It might not be a major factor for the Dinuba quarterback but he said it will be something to consider.
"That does play somewhat of a factor," McMaryion said. "My mom is all for that school."
