The word is spreading that Bryce Treggs is one of California's top juniors and the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco wide receiver picked up offers from Notre Dame and Georgia Tech on Tuesday.
It was more good news for Treggs, who said both were a surprise.
"It was very sudden," Treggs said of the Notre Dame offer. "I didn't even think they were recruiting me that hard. I heard they knew about me but I didn't think they were that close at all. That was a big surprise to get that one.

"It was off of tape. They said they like my skill set a lot and that I fit in well with their offense. I like Notre Dame a lot.
"It's a great institution and the tradition there is just phenomenal. You can't go wrong if you go there. Their football program is great and they use their playmakers which is also good for me."
Georgia Tech's offer was maybe even more of a shock because Treggs, a 5-foot-10 athlete who shined at wide receiver and defensive back during his junior season, said he hadn't heard much at all from the Yellow Jackets.
Treggs admitted that he's not too aware of Georgia Tech's program but he's certainly going to do his homework.
"I don't know too much about Georgia Tech yet," Treggs said. "I'm sure I'll research them a little bit though. That was a surprise also."
Arizona State, Cal, Stanford, UCLA and San Jose State have also offered Treggs, who finished with 56 catches for 1,010 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns this past season. His father, Brian, played for the Golden Bears and they're considered the early frontrunner.
Treggs could be close to getting more offers. He said Washington, Oregon and Utah have all become more interested recently and Treggs has also taken an unofficial visit to USC where he's talked with assistant coach Ed Orgeron.
