Three-star wide receiver Ricky Marvray (5-11, 184, 4.5) from Corona (Calif.) Centennial has seven offers on the table. Like for many players the offers have slowed down since July, but it's a very good bet that if he performs the first month of the season like he did during camps he attended, his offer total could double by October. He does have a favorite or two.
"I have not received any new offers lately," Marvray said when asked about his recruitment. "The last offer that I got was from San Diego State. "UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State and pretty much the whole Pac 10 are recruiting me hard right now."
"My favorite overall right now is UCLA," Marvray said. "Also, Northwestern which is one of my offers is another favorite. Those are my two highest right now."
"I don't have a timetable for a commitment ," Marvray said. "If I do get a school that I really like and they offer me then I will commit, but as far as putting a timetable on it I don't have a deadline where I want to be committed or anything like that."
"I'm in the process of setting up some official visits," Marvray said. "One is to Wyoming and the other is to Northwestern. I'd also like to take an official visit to Utah; I'd like to visit there."
Marvray was one of many top recruits in attendance at the UCLA/Tennessee game on Monday and according to his dad, he a great time. He was able to get some face time with head coach Rick Neuheisel, his recruiter Wayne Moses and wide receiver coach Reggie Moore.
What is Marvray looking for in a school?
"Most importantly is where the school stands academically," Marvray said. "I want to be able to get a strong education wherever I go because I know football isn't going to last forever. Also, the type of offense they run is important, and finally location."
"Pretty much everyone is recruiting me to play wide receiver, but UCLA is telling me that if they were to offer me it would be as an athlete."
Besides Marvray's offers from Northwestern and Dan Diego State, he has offers from Wyoming, Utah, Army, Air Force and Montana State.
As a junior, Marvray earned all-league honors after accounting for 33 receptions for 753 yards and scored eight touchdowns.
"Ricky is one of the hardest working players we have ever had here at Centennial," Centennial head coach Matt Logan said in an earlier interview. "He really matured last season and truly came on at the end of last season."
"Ricky has great ball skills and he's a perfectionist at everything he does," Logan said. "He takes great pride in his routes and works long and hard perfecting them."
"Ricky is also a great downfield blocker and takes great pride in his blocking too," Logan said. "He helped spring some long runs for us."
Marvray was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 58 prospect at any position.
