New leader for Virginia WR?

Dinwiddie, Virginia wide receiver Sam Haskins holds four offers and he is attracting attention from schools that previously had not been in the picture.

The 6-foot-4, 199-pound prospect spoke recently about the recruiting process and what to expect from here on out.

"I went to a camp at Auburn and it was very good," Haskins said. "That's where our offense comes from and we were learning new plays. Auburn and Troy were there and they said after my third game of the season they would probably offer."

Haskins will need to send film out from those first couple of games, and that should determine whether or not the new offers come in.

Currently he holds scholarships from Minnesota, Arkansas, Delaware and James Madison.

While Haskins is not a burner he does have a long stride and the ability to make plays downfield. He would also provide quarterbacks with a huge target at the college level -- undoubtedly an attractive quality for many coaches.

"Right now my favorites are Minnesota and Auburn," Haskins explained. "If Auburn offers I'd say that would probably be the school. I think I would most likely commit. I'm just going to wait and see what happens, though."

As a junior Haskins had 200 receiving yards with four touchdowns.
