Stovall lands more Pac-12 interest

Melquise Stovall finished with 2,785 total yards and 43 touchdowns in his sophomore season.
The 2016 running back from Lancaster (Calif.) Paraclete is looking for more with his junior campaign only days away.
"I actually want to put up a little more," Stovall said. "I want to put up 3,000 yards instead of 2,000."
The four-star prospect has already landed offers from Boise State, Washington and San Diego State and Stovall said plenty of other Pac-12 coaches have reached out recently.
Stovall, rated as the No. 14 running back and the No. 194 prospect in the 2016 class by Rivals.com, said the preseason has been great and he's hopeful some programs offer after a few games into his junior season.
The early returns have been positive.
"So far, so good," Stovall said. "We're just getting the team ready for our first game.
"I've been talking with the Cal coaches, the UCLA coaches, the Washington State coaches and a few other schools."
There has been a lot of communication and the Lancaster Paraclete standout believes more offers could be coming soon.
"From what I know of they want to see me this year," Stovall said. "Some of them wanted to pull the trigger but I guess some of them wanted to see me a little more in action."
As for unofficial visits this season, Stovall said he definitely wants to take a trip to Washington during his bye week and other Pac-12 trips could happen as well.
"I think week six or seven I'm going to a game at Washington," Stovall said. "We're still trying to work things out with that and I want to get to a Cal game and a few other games."
