Tyler Horton of Edison-Fresno came home to this gift from a school near him - a scholarship offer from Fresno State on Thursday, Oct. 2, making it his seventh offer and his fourth from the Mountain West.

Horton - who triples as a return man, wide receiver and shutdown cornerback for the 4-0 Tigers - has landed two significant pledges in the last month. Cal-Berkeley extended an offer to him in September along with Thursday's Fresno State offer. Colorado State, San Jose State and Nevada of the Mountain West has also reached out to him by extending a scholarship opportunity.

Horton has three touchdowns in four games for Edison, who'll battle 2-2 Clovis West at Lamonica Stadium on Friday, Oct. 3.


Michael Pittman Jr. of Oaks Christian-Westlake Village has seen his recruiting period intensify, with UCLA emerging as the third offer for the 6-foot-4, 200-pound wide receiver.

In a span of one month, Pittman has landed three pledges from the Bruins, the University of Washington and Cal-Berkeley.

Oaks Christian travels to Sherman Oaks on Friday to take on traditional Los Angeles prep power Norte Dame.
