Arizona State and San Diego State are the two favorites for Devian Shelton, who blew up this summer especially at the B2G Elite Camp, but with more interest coming in the Inglewood, Calif., cornerback isn't ready to make his decision yet.
The Sun Devils and Aztecs are definitely looking good, Shelton said, mainly because they've both been recruiting him for so long.
"Really right now San Diego State and ASU are standing out to me because they've been showing me love," Shelton said. "ASU has been showing me love ever since they came up here for Patrick (Onwuasor).

"They've been recruiting me pretty hard since last season. They came down to the school and they saw me run a route and the coach said I had a lot of speed. They've been talking to me and saying they were going to come back and try to get me. That was a big weight lifted off my shoulders.
"(San Diego State) was my first offer right after New Mexico offered the day before. I took a bigger interest in San Diego State. They're an up-and-coming team and I feel like I can go there and make an impact and I really like their school."
Shelton, who also has offers from Idaho, SMU, Utah State and Washington State, said UCLA has also started to seriously recruit him and he's been in close contact with assistant coach Mike Johnson.
The Bruins might be close to an offer and that would be big news for Shelton, who said he'd prefer to make a decision during the first part of his senior season. That means UCLA might have to move fast if it wants to stay involved in his recruitment.
"I just talked to Mike Johnson from UCLA and he said he's going to start recruiting me hard now," Shelton said.
"They knew about me last year and they were recruiting me last year but it was like whatever. Now they're really recruiting me. They said they want to see my grades improve a little better and last semester I improved a lot."
Rivals.com rates Shelton as the No. 64 cornerback in the 2012 class and No. 79 in the California state rankings. He was one of the top surprises this summer after seeing him at multiple events.
