On the Golden State recruiting trail: Nevada now after big Edison-Fresno target

The wait for scholarship offer No. 1 ended for Kamron Lewis of Edison-Fresno during the weekend of Oct. 11, as Nevada emerged as the first official pledge for the wide receiver.

The 6-foot-3 Lewis said Wolf Pack head coach Brian Polian extended the offer to him. Lewis, who's leading the Tigers with 21 catches for 346 yards during Edison's 6-0 start, told Cali Gold Mine that he can rest easy thanks to the Mountain West program.

"I can relax, just play football and not worry any more," Lewis said. "Between all the coaches I've talked to, I felt accepted there. They were all respectful and just great to talk to."

Lewis doesn't plan to commit right away. He added that Colorado State, San Diego State, Eastern Washington, Colorado, Houston and Washington State also are asking about him.

The senior, who was largely overshadowed by teammate and Utah commit Tyrone Smith last season, said he's enjoying the way he's played so far this season, as he's become the new top receiving option for Edison.

"I haven't dropped any passes and my blocking on run plays is where I've improved," Lewis said. "I still can improve on my overall game; as in speed, route running, ball skills, catching, strength, everything."


Tyler Horton came home to his ninth scholarship offer following Edison's 44-14 rout of San Joaquin Memorial-Fresno on Oct. 9. His latest one is from Boise State.

The Broncos are now Horton's sixth offer from the Mountain West. San Jose State, Nevada, Colorado State, Wyoming and Fresno State have all extended a pledge to the versatile 6-foot-1 athlete.

Horton also holds Eastern Washington, Houston and California-Berkeley offers.
