Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta running back Jovonte Slater, one of the fastest players in Southern California, picked up his first offer on Tuesday.
"Jovonte received a written offer from Army to play football," said his father, Dedrick.
The 5-10, 165-pound Slater made a big impression as a kick returner, setting a school record with two 99-yard kickoff returns for scores in 2009.
Slater has the fastest 200m time in California this year, at 21.30, and the fastest of any junior (non-wind aided).
He ranks sixth in the state in the long jump.
