Marquis Ware has already landed three offers and the 2014 athlete from Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian said he's relieved - and ready to work even harder.
"It feels good to have options because there are a lot of kids out there who had to wait for their junior and senior years," Ware said. "It feels good to me because I have it now and I don't have to worry about anything. I'm still going to work really hard though so I can get more."
Boise State, Oregon State and Washington State have offered Ware, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect who looked good at wide receiver at the recent Fourth Quarter Sports Elite 7-on-7 tournament.

Since it's still so early in his recruitment, Ware said no frontrunners have emerged yet.
"There really isn't a favorite," Ware said. "I would go anywhere. I just want to play for a good team and for a school that has good academics."
A change of scenery seemed to have helped Ware, who transferred from Los Angeles Cathedral to Salesian and it seems everything has skyrocketed in his recruitment.
"I was at Cathedral and I was playing freshman and JV and I really wasn't that good, I didn't do too well when I got in the game," Ware said. "When I came over here I started varsity and everything went well.
"I feel more comfortable here and we work really hard here. I came out in the summer and I got really close with the quarterback so that worked out well."
UCLA, Washington and USC are also showing early interest in Ware and even though he said location isn't an issue the Salesian standout added if the Bruins or Trojans happen to offer he would definitely give them a serious look.
"Right now I would go anywhere but if UCLA or USC gave me an offer I'd really look to go there," Ware said. "It really depends how things go over the next year to figure out where I want to go."
