Devian Shelton has been impressive at numerous B2G Sports workouts this spring and finally the Inglewood, Calif., defensive back has picked up his first offer.
San Diego State came through with an offer earlier this week for Shelton, a 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback who hasn't been talking to the Aztecs much but who should be in more communication soon.
"It's been cool with them," Shelton said. "They haven't been recruiting me for too long. That was my first time talking to San Diego State really. I was told that San Diego State wanted to offer me so I called (assistant) coach Tony White and they offered me.
"They told me they run five defensive backs and they run a lot of man coverage and so I really like that. That's where I'm comfortable."
Arizona State, Oregon State, Boise State, Nebraska, Miami, UCLA and USC are some other schools showing interest in Shelton, who said he's going to take things slow in his recruitment, wait for some summer camps to come around and then figure out which situation is best.
Two summer camps Shelton definitely plans to attend are the USC Rising Stars Camp and the B2G Elite Camp. An unofficial visit to San Diego State might also happen soon but Shelton wasn't sure of dates.
Inglewood is also the home of wide receiver Derrick Woods, who has offers from Arizona State, Florida, Idaho, Miami, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Washington.
Last recruiting cycle, Inglewood produced two Pac-10 signees in wide receiver Patrick Onwuasor (Arizona) and defensive end Jaswha James (Oregon State).
