A look at the latest news and notes from out West in this week's notebook...

Lets Get It Started

It was the first full week of recruiting for the 2014 class and a whole slew of offers went out.

It also was a time for some schools to host Junior Days and Meet-and-Greet's.

New Washington coach Chris Petersen and his staff hosted their Junior Day the Saturday after Signing Day, with several of the Northwest's top prospects visiting Seattle.

Arizona had a meet-and-greet of their own this weekend, with a number of in-state and California prospects making the trip.

Camp and 7on7 season kicks in to effect next month, with the first two big events taking place in March in the Los Angeles NFTC on March 9th and the Pylon Elite 7on7 and Lineman Challenge in Las Vegas the following weekend.

The West's top receiver in the 2015 class, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro four-star Christian Kirk, landed offers from the Big Ten and the SEC.

Kirk was offered by both Ole Miss and Penn State and Arizona's top prospect is nearing 30 offers.
