Class of 2015 receiver Christian Kirk (Scottsdale, Ariz./Saguaro) might have the most impressive offer list of any other junior on the West Coast, and he added to it Sunday afternoon to kick off the fall evaluation period.
It wasn’t necessarily a new development, though.
Kirk, ranked No. 37 in the ESPN Junior 300 and one of five underclassmen to participate in The Opening this past summer, found out some old news when USC assistant coach Tommie Robinson informed him about a scholarship offer that has been on table for months.
“Apparently they had offered me during spring ball, but I didn't know about it,” Kirk said. “I'm excited.”
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound prospect is nowhere near a decision, though, as he continues to build a list that already includes the likes of Florida State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas A&M, UCLA and Wisconsin, among many others. He hopes to visit Los Angeles sometime this fall, but he hasn’t solidified any plans.
“It's going to be tough, but I hope to narrow it down sometime next summer and wait it out for my commitment,” Kirk said.
Arizona’s top-rated 2015 athlete knows what he likes about the Trojans.
“I feel really comfortable talking to [Coach Robinson],” Kirk said. “There’s a lot of tradition. I like the success the recent receivers have been having there.”
Kirk, who is No. 3 at his position in the 2015 class, was quick when asked how much on-field success will factor into his choice.
“A good amount,” he said.
