Reaching out helps Todd

La Mirada, Calif., four-star wide receiver Dallis Todd recently brainstormed with his coach, Mike Moschetti, about schools that haven't offered yet that he was still interested in and Miami was the top one.
So Moschetti tracked down contact information for the Miami coaching staff, Todd reached out via Twitter and a few days later the 6-foot-5, 205-pound wide receiver landed his latest offer.
"It was kind of weird because (Sunday) was the first time I talked to the wide receiver coach on the phone," Todd said. "We had been messaging each other on Twitter so we've only talked like three times.
"I was surprised because I messaged their coach probably Friday night and he told me to call him and they offered so quickly, like two days, so I was surprised by it."
The Miami offer was a surprise and it's a big one for Todd, who reclassified from the 2013 to 2014 class and has seen his recruitment take off.
Todd, who finished with more than 1,000 receiving yards last season, said he loves the Hurricanes' program and even studies how Michael Irvin played the wide receiver position for tips on how to improve his own game.
"It's a big-time offer for me," Todd said. "Coach Moschetti and I sat down and we were talking about colleges that I was interested in that hadn't offered yet and I said Miami so he got me the wide receiver coach's contact info.
"It was a college I wanted an offer from, it's a college I was watching for a long time and I study Michael Irvin. I study his plays so that was a big part."
Todd has many big offers including Arizona, Arizona State, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Ole Miss, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Utah, Vanderbilt, Washington and others but there is still a select group of programs the four-star wants to hear from.
Miami was one of them but the Hurricanes just offered. Todd still hopes to get in contact with West Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Alabama. The La Mirada standout has no plans of narrowing down his list any time soon.
