Offer No. 1 and 2 have come in for wide receiver Lamont Baldwin. The Washington (D.C.) Archbishop Carroll prospect landed the offer yesterday from far west.
"Hawaii offered me at about 11 o'clock yesterday, that was my first offer," he said. "It's big because maybe two months ago my coach sat down with me about a top 10 list including passing game, location, weather and Hawaii kept coming up, plus I could play right away. I didn't think they recruited the East Coast that much, so it was a surprise for me to see them in the school."
Baldwin is intrigued by the Warriors.
"The atmosphere as a football player is the biggest thing," he said. "Also, the education is good and the ability to step away from the D.C. lifestyle."
The scholarship was followed by Toledo on Tuesday night.
"They came and watched me workout on Monday," he said. "I'm familiar with Toledo as I know a few people that are going there. I don't really know that much about them, honestly. But, I'm interested."
More schools are moving in on Baldwin.
"I have North Carolina coming in this week, Miami is looking, UMass, Old Dominion, NC State and Iowa," he said. "They are all doing their evaluations of me. Some want to see me at camp and others are trying to see me. I'm on their boards."
Camps are next on the agenda and Baldwin has a few in mind.
"I'll be going to Temple on the second of June and Towson on the fifth," he said. "I've got Maryland for their first camp and I know I'll be going to North Carolina's camp."
Does the wideout like anyone?
"I do like schools, I like Hawaii since they are big on me right now," he said. "They are the first ones to offer me and that is very big for me."
Baldwin is planning to graduate early in January 2013.
