SoCal WR receives two offers

Athlete/wide receiver prospect Christopher Potter (5-10, 175, 4.48) from Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian has received his first two official offers and it appears that there could be more on the way.
"Christopher is a getting a lot attention this spring," Oaks Christian coach Bill Redell said. "He has two official offers from Boise State and Colorado State.
"I just got off the phone from Houston and they may offer Christopher. I should know more later this week."
There have been rumblings that Ole Miss and Kentucky of SEC have offered, but this hasn't been verified.
It is interesting that Boise State and Colorado State are the first two schools to give official offers to Potter because he is the type of football player that helped both programs rise to prominence.
As a matte of fact, Potter has been compared to former Colorado State great wide receiver David Anderson now with the Houston Texans of the NFL.
Cal, Oregon State, San Diego State, Nevada and Montana are also showing interest in Potter and Redell seems to have the answer.
"In my 19 years of coaching high school football," Redell said. "Christopher is one of the best wide receivers that I have coached. He's a definite D-I receiver.
"I think he has dropped one pass in three years. He's a go to guy and a clutch player. Christopher is a great runner after the catch.
Potter is also an outstanding punt and kick returner.
Though it appears that Potter's ticket to the D-I level is as a wide receiver, he may have unenviable task of replacing Notre Dame freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen after being one of Clausen's main targets over the last two years.
For his career, Potter has caught 118 passes for 1,997 yards and 24 touchdowns. As a junior, he earned first-team all-CIF and second team all-state after catching 49 passes for 822 yards and eight touchdowns. He also rushed for 255 yards and two touchdowns.
In relief of Clausen, Potter hit on 16 of 25 passes for 261 yards and two throwing touchdowns.
"Christopher reminds me of Dave Anderson who played high school football at Thousand Oaks before being a four-year starter for Colorado State,". "He's also a great special teams player."
As a punt returner, Potter had 393 yards while averaging 15.1 yard per punt return and one touchdown.
Potter made the all-state sophomore team in 2005 after accounting for 37 receptions for 671 yards and eight touchdowns.
