CARSON, Calif. - One of the most productive prospects Thursday at the Big Man on Campus Under the Lights 7-on-7 Tournament was three-star safety Chris Solomon, who had two big interceptions during one game and made plays all night.
More offers could be on the way for Solomon, a 6-foot, 188-pound prospect from West Covina who already has Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Nevada on his offer list. So far, the three Pac-10 schools are making the biggest impression on Solomon but it's still early.
"I love the facilities at Arizona State," Solomon said. "I like their coaches, too.
"At Colorado, I would like to see how this season goes and then we'll see from there. I'm talking to USC right now and we're communicating. They haven't offered me anything but I'm hoping I get one."
Solomon, who was second on his West Covina team in tackles and also rushed for 1,958 yards and 23 touchdowns in his junior season, is going to Oregon State's camp in a few weeks, hopes to go to Washington for a workout and just returned from USC's summer camp.
He's hoping those upcoming camp stops - plus more performances like he had at Thursday's 7-on-7 event - will garner him more offers. Solomon already has a few options but he's not close to a decision so he's looking for more.
"I'm going to camps and looking for more offers," Solomon said. "I want to get more experience with coaches, seeing some new faces and having a great time."
According to his coach, Mike Maggiore, UCLA and Nevada prefer Solomon at running back while the other schools could play him at cornerback, safety or he could possibly grow to be an outside linebacker.
