Slavin adding more interest

Corona (Calif.) Eleanor Roosevelt three-star receiver Tyler Slavin is another talented playmaker from California's Inland Empire.
The 6-foot-2, 182-pounder already has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, UNLV, Washington and Nevada and more are surely on the way.
The one he just received from Colorado State is a good example.
"I got an exciting new offer from Colorado State," Slavin, who has been timed at 4.6-seconds in the 40-yard dash and has a 31 inch vertical leap, said. "Colorado State is cool, but I don't know too much about them. I would say the school I've been talking to the most is Arizona. I've been talking to coach Tim Kish a lot. Their coaches seem real, and I like that.
"I'm starting to talk to Cal a lot, and I've been keeping up with Washington and Northwestern and ASU."
Of those schools, one coach is building a really good bond with Slavin.
"Kevin Daft from Cal is cool," Slavin said.
"But I would have to say Washington is really standing out to me at this point. I like that their coaches came from a high-powered school (USC) and offense. They're looking forward hopefully to making some new traditions there. I like the program, their stadium, their facilities, and the chance to play as a true freshman."
Slavin said he's not tied down to playing in the Pac 10, which is why programs like Nebraska, Northwestern, Colorado State and Nevada are still on his list.
He said he got an early offer from Nebraska, but hasn't heard much from the Cornhuskers lately. He's hoping to also more from a few more schools out West and grab more offers to consider.
"I'd say Stanford, Nebraska and UCLA are the schools that I want to hear more from for sure," he said. "Stanford, I like their receivers coach (David Shaw) a lot. I'm thinking about visiting Arizona and Washington this summer. Then I'll be at the UCLA one-day camp and hopefully the Cal one, too. Coach Daft from Cal really wanted me to come up for their camp."
Slavin said a few things will be important when it comes time to pick the perfect school.
"I'm looking for a good environment, a good offense and coaches," he said. "I'm looking for, most likely, a spread offense – that's what we run right now. I want to decide before or after my senior season."
Slavin, who is ranked a 5.5 on the Rivals Rating Scale, said schools like his physical play at receiver.
"I'm aggressive off the line," he said. "I've got good hands, and I jump up and get the ball. My vertical is high. I'm explosive."
