Thomas Toki recently reported a boatload of new interest and now two more programs have gotten involved - and they're big ones.
"Things have popped up," Toki said. "I got letters from Miami and Alabama. I think one of the letters, they verbally offered me but I'm going to have to check with the coaches out there.
"I'm going to try to give them a call. They gave me a letter and they said they can't offer me yet but they're really interested in offering me."
The 2015 defensive tackle from Kirkland (Wash.) Juanita said an offer from either the Crimson Tide or the Hurricanes would be huge and would have to be considered as his recruitment continues.
"That would be awesome," Toki said. "It would be crazy."
The 6-foot-2, 285-pound prospect already has offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington State. A recent batch of new interest has come in from Florida State, USC, Georgia, Cal, Auburn, Oregon, Boise State and others. Arizona and Utah could be close to offering as well.
Toki, who has seen his recruitment really take off recently, said he was even surprised by all the new attention. Alabama reportedly sent six letters and Miami sent three.
"I was surprised when my coach came up with these six Alabama letters," Toki said. "I started opening them and the first one I opened, that was the letter that said I might have the offer. I started reading it and it was pretty cool."
Toki said he's planning a stop at Oregon later this season for its instate matchup against Oregon State. A visit to Washington State is also a possibility.
