Jarrett Sparks, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound three-star wide receiver from Merced High School, Calif., has attended camps at both California and USC, but the Trojans still haven't offered. Sparks does have offers from Cal, Oregon State, Arizona, Washington State and Arizona State.
"The USC camp was real good," Sparks said. "I feel like I learned a lot. They have great coaches and the players work really hard. It was good to see what it takes to play for them.
"I still hear from their coaches a lot, but they said that if they do offer me, it won't be until later during the season," he said. "I guess they are still evaluating everything and want to see how I look during my season."
He says the Trojans still lead slightly over California, Oregon State and Arizona. The Bears are recruiting him the hardest.
"The Cal camp was great too," Sparks said. "I won the wide receiver MVP award and they really want me to go there. They are recruiting me the most and I like that they are close to home. I really like the weather in that area too."
Sparks, ranked No. 74 in the West by Scout.com, says he going to take a few official visits before making a decision. "I want to see where I feel the most comfortable," Sparks said. "I don't plan on making a commitment until I take a few trips.
"My biggest strength is my physicalness," said Sparks, who reports a 4.5 forty time. "I'm able to get yards after the catch because I just don't catch the ball to go down. I plow forward as far as I can get. I don’t care who's in front of me."
He reports a 3.1 core GPA and a 1400 SAT.
