Trosin patient with recruiting process

After a season-opening loss to Sacramento (Calif.) Grant, Folsom got back on track last weekend with a 55-7 win at Roseville. It also meant wide receiver Tyler Trosin had a big game finishing with 11 catches for 174 yards and four touchdowns.
"He had a big game and teams kind of rolled their coverage toward Kori (Babineaux) a little bit and it opened up Tyler a little bit and in the future they'll roll their coverage toward Tyler and it will open up Kori," Folsom coach Kris Richardson said.
Folsom is loaded on offense with Trosin, Babineaux, Stanford commit Jordan Richards, quarterback Dano Graves and others and all of them put up big numbers last season.
They were stymied against Grant - led by defensive tackle Viliami Moala, safety James Sample and defensive back Shaq Thompson - but Folsom is expected to roll the rest of this season.
"In some games you're going to have 10 catches and in some games you're going to have two," Richardson said.
"It's been that way since they've been together. There isn't a lot of, 'I want the ball,' kind of stuff going on. It's support of their teammates. They know when we have opportunities to get them the ball we're going to do that."
All that offensive production can only help recruiting for Trosin, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound prospect who lists offers from Arizona State, Iowa State, Oregon State, Washington State and Sacramento State.
Richardson said his players aren't that focused on recruiting right now - that production matters much more - and so even though the Sun Devils and Beavers seem to stand out for Trosin, he's going to be patient with the process during the season.
"Tyler has talked with Arizona State and Oregon State about some visits," Richardson said. "Right now we put the recruiting stuff on the back burner.
"They know in order to continue to be recruited they have to show up and play so let's stop talking about college recruiting, let's start talking about production and getting the job done on the field and they're great at that so it's been fantastic."
