Sierra Canyon (Calif.) wide receiver Isaiah Renfro had a feeling he might get some Division I interest, sooner or later, if he just took care of business on the football field and continue to work hard and so that's just what he did.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect has dominated defensive backs on a weekly basis. Every clip of film you're able to see on him show the talented receiver not only catching the ball, but also fighting for every yard he can get. Now it seems that those highlights have gotten out to a number of college coaches and that has gotten his recruiting journey off to a very fast start.
“Recruiting has been going really well and it's really picked up since September 1st,” shared Renfro. “I'm surprised by how fast the process works, but I'm really excited about all of it. I'm still waiting on my first offer, but I'm hearing a lot from Michigan State, Duke, BYU, Alabama and Arizona right now.”
While the Sierra Canyon standout sorts through recruiting letters on a daily basis, he's currently in the process of setting up the criteria he'll be looking for in the University of his choice.
“I think the biggest thing I'll be looking for in a school will be early playing time,” he claimed. “I know nothing will be guaranteed, and I'll have to work for it, but I'm hoping to get on the field right away. I just want to have the opportunity to compete for a starting position right away when I get there. I also want to go to a program that has a good football tradition.”
Renfro knows one school that is deep in football tradition is Notre Dame and recently it seems the Irish have decided to start testing the water with the junior wide out.
“I've received a few pieces of mail from Notre Dame already, but I haven't received any e-mails from them yet,” he said. “I'm hoping to hear a lot more from them because I really like Notre Dame. I love the tradition they have up there and it seems like they would be a really nice school to go to for academics and athletics.”
Does that mean a possible visit to South Bend could be in the cards?
“If I start hearing more from Notre Dame, I'd really love to check them out. I've heard nothing but good things about them and their program, so I'm hoping for the chance to visit them in the future if they're interested in me doing so.”
