Denzell Dotson performed well at the Badger Sports Elite Lineman Challenge in Las Vegas and then a few weeks later at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp and now his recruitment is picking up in a big way.
The Glendale (Ariz.) Cactus offensive guard has picked up offers from Washington State and Wyoming to go along with Northern Colorado and Montana and many other schools are showing interest.
Dotson said Arizona, Indiana, Stanford, Michigan, Washington and San Jose State are just a few of the teams that have reached out and he's excited about where his recruitment is headed.

"It means a lot and I'm really excited," Dotson said.
"The first big offer that came in, that gave me a big boost and there's not that much stressing out about offers and what's going to happen. You get the first one so you expect more to follow. Once you get the first one you don't really worry as much."
Because some major programs have started to show interest, the 6-foot-2, 300-pound prospect said he's in no rush to make a decision.
What he plans to do is wait through spring practice, see which schools are the most active and then maybe start figuring out some favorites.
But Dotson could wait until his senior season to make a commitment. More programs are expected to get involved and that means Dotson has time to see how things play out over the next few months.
"I'm just going through spring ball, doing what I do, help out with my teammates and then seeing what goes on," Dotson said.
"If they come out to watch and they're interested that's cool and if they offer that's great. I'm just waiting it out to see what happens."
