Riggins hopeful for more
D.J. Riggins recently landed his first offer from Hawaii and the Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian running back is confident others are coming.
Riggins, who excelled at the Rivals Camp Series in Phoenix, said he continues to receive a tremendous amount of interest from Utah and Oregon State and recently Washington, Washington State and San Jose State have reached out.
"I've been talking to San Jose State and they've been messaging me on Facebook," Riggins said. "They say they really want me to be their back and they're saying if I'm interested they really want me down there. Pretty much all the Pac-12 schools are saying to wait for the first few games."
Riggins is perfectly fine with that message.
The Oaks Christian standout did a lot of damage in the passing game last season and then put together a nice rushing attack later on in the year.
With a few televised games early on in his senior year, and many Pac-12 coaches keeping a close on his progression, there could be no better motivation for the three-star.
"There is a lot of interest," Riggins said. "Pretty much all the Pac-12 schools like Utah and Oregon State said they would love to have a back like me.
"Most of my carries I got in the second half of the season and I got a lot of receiving yards the first half, and they all want me as a running back so they said the first three games of the season they want to see how I do and I could definitely get an offer.
"I'm really looking forward to the first few games and two of them are televised so I think that could be really big."
Hawaii is the lone offer so far for Riggins, who said that program will always stay in contention throughout his recruitment because it was the first one to offer.
