Class of 2016 running back Amir Rasul of Coral Gables (Fla.) has four offers on the table, his most recent coming from West Virginia this spring.
On the football recruiting front, his offseason had been quiet while he focused on track.
"When they came in I was extraordinarily happy," said Rasul, who stands at 5-10, 188 pounds. "I was glad they came in, just like I was with all my other offers, but that one kind of hit me and it felt pretty good when it came in."
Rasul also holds offers from Miami, Florida International and Temple bus said he doesn't have a favorite among those.
"I like all my offers," he said.
He spent the summer visiting schools including Florida, Florida State, Auburn and USF and said his goal for the season is to earn offers from all of those schools.
"I think I'll hear back from them," he said. "If I hear from any of them I'll be happy and if not, it's something to work toward."
Rasul also hopes to hear from Arkansas, Arizona and Texas while he works on building relationships with the schools that have already offered.
"It'd be great to hear from them," he said. "But if I can just stay in touch with the ones I have now, that'd be awesome. I'm just building up and progressing in my recruiting process and that's what I'm looking forward to. That, and having a good season."
If all goes according to plan, Rasul will earn the offers he's aiming for by this season, then make his decision a month into the postseason.
"A month after the season after I finish looking at my offers," said Rasul, "I can commit to the school of my choice hopefully and then just keep going from there and do what I have to do."
Rasul rushed for 400 yards last season.
