It's a big spring for Scott Starr not because the Norco, Calif., outside linebacker doesn't have offers - he has six of those - but because there's a good chance over the next few weeks he can pick up even more.
Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, UCLA and Washington have already offered Starr, who said USC, Oregon, Oregon State and a few other schools are involved as well.
He's definitely focused on his Norco team heading into his senior season but recruiting is also a priority and many more programs could get in the mix soon.

"I'm going to have to work on everything right now," Starr said Sunday at the Rivals.com Five-Star Academy.
"I'm just busting my tail every day with my teammates. It's going to be a big deal with spring ball. USC is going to come out. A lot of scouts are going to come out. I have to show what I have this spring and show what I've been working for this entire off-season.
"What I first want to do is focus on my team. We want to win a CIF championship this year because it's been a while at Norco. Besides that, I want to get a little more attention college-wise and figure out where I want to go for college."
There are no favorites yet for Starr because his recruitment could blow up soon so he doesn't want to pigeonhole himself. He recently took unofficial visits to USC and UCLA last week and said both were worthwhile trips.
"Every school is pretty much even right now," Starr said. "I don't want to say I have any favorites because honestly I don't have any. I like all the schools. It's hard to pick just one out of any of those schools.
"I took an unofficial to USC and UCLA last week. It was a fun thing to go to because I hadn't been to UCLA's practice yet. I've been to USC one time before that. Every time I go out there I learn something new. It's like I'm in practice there because I'm listening to the coaches so much."
Starr, who plans to attend the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and the USC Rising Star Camp, said an offer from the Trojans would be big but didn't go as far to say he'd commit if that happened.
"It would be a huge deal if USC offered because that's one of the biggest programs in the country," Starr said. "If they do offer that would be great but I do have other schools I'd love to go to."
