John Plattenburg has been quickly landing offers in recent weeks and the Corona (Calif.) Centennial has an early top three.
With fresh offers from Cal and Washington, both Pac-12 schools jump way up in his recruitment and both will be taken seriously along with another top program.
"My top three, not in order, would be Cal, Washington and Boise State," Plattenburg said.

"It means a lot that they stuck by their word. Big schools like that don't just offer everybody. They really do their research on each player and they don't just hand out offers."
Both the Huskies and Golden Bears sent coaches down to see Plattenburg recently and it turned out both offered.
That's big for the Corona Centennial standout who looked good once again at the Passing Down Best of the West 7on7 at Fullerton College this past weekend.
"Cal came down and watched me run my track meet," Plattenburg said. "They saw me run, coach (Andy) Buh and coach (Randy) Stewart came down, and they offered me. They talked to my mom and she really liked them.
"Washington also came. Coach (Keith) Heyward kept talking to me and building a good relationship. Coach (Peter) Sirmon came to my practice on Thursday and watched what I could do a little bit. I even talked to coach (Steve Sarkisian) and he's really excited about me, too."
Another surprise offer for Plattenburg, who landed an offer from Arizona State on Tuesday, was Oregon State. He had previously talked to the staff but after a quiet period the Beavers came through with another offer.
"It was a surprise," Plattenburg said.
"My coach told me to call up coach (Trent) Bray and they surprised me. They said they were watching my film two months ago but something happened. They said they wanted to make up for lost time so that was great."
In total, Plattenburg has offers from Arizona State, Boise State, Cal, Colorado State, Nevada, Oregon State, San Diego State, Utah and Washington. He said Kansas, Northwestern, Washington State and UCLA all remain interested.
