Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) 2019 running back Sean Dollars is one of the top backs in the West in the 2019 class, which should be one of the stronger and deeper classes in the region in the last few years.
Dollars already has eight offers, six from the Pac-12 and one each from the Big Ten and Big 12.
One of the Pac-12 offers stands out to him too.
“I feel like Washington stands out the most to just because they don’t offer a lot of guys so them recognizing my talent and offering me is much appreciated,” said Dollars.
Dollars visited Washington during the summer, as well as Oregon, while hitting the two local schools, UCLA and USC.
“All of those visits were good,” said Dollars. “I already knew the area of USC and UCLA, so it was really nothing new. Oregon was an interesting site but it’s all hard work out there and a big campus life. At Washington, there is more stuff to do and a lot of areas to go but it is still hard work there and of course you still have a big campus life.”
UCLA was the first local school to offer Dollars.
“It was big because UCLA is a local school that everybody wants to attend so that was a big standout offer,” said Dollars. “I want to build more of a connection with the running back coach, Deshaun Foster.”
Dollars said he thinks USC could be joining the mix soon.
“USC, I feel they’re very close to offering,” said Dollars.
Dollars said that Oregon has been on him the hardest and two of his Rancho teammates from a year ago, Thomas Graham and Jaylon Redd, are now in Eugene.
“Oregon is still recruiting me the hardest,” said Dollars. “I have a good relationship with Coach (Donte) Pimpleton and Coach (Keith) Heyward and am very tight with Coach Heyward.”
He’s also developed a rapport with Utah running backs coach Kiel McDonald.
“At Utah, I have a really good football relationship with Coach McDonald,” said Dollars. “I would like to take an unofficial to Utah this fall.”
Dollars said he’s still pretty wide open since its relatively early in his recruitment.
“I don’t really have a favorite right now to be honest,” said Dollars.
Dollars said he plans to get up to Oregon for an unofficial when they host Nebraska and plans to attend games of both of the Los Angeles schools.
Rancho Cucamonga begins their 2017 season with Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral on August 25.
