Chandler CB Marc Anthony

Scout.com was informed today by three different recruits that Colorado State has extended offers.

Colorado State is trying to make their recruiting presence known in the state of Arizona. Just today the Rams offered three players from the Grand Canyon State.

Tighend Steven Figueroa from Desert Vista HS (Phoenix, AZ) sent a text message saying, "I just got a call from Colorado State and they offered me."

Figueroa now holds offers from CSU, Nebraska, Arizona State, Oregon State, San Diego State, UNLV and Utah. Figueroa says that CSU jumps into his top seven list of schools along with ASU (leader), Oregon State, Nebraska, San Diego State, UNLV and Arizona (no offer).

The 6-4 220 pound Figueroa caught 16 passes for 252 yards and 4 TDs last year. Here are clips of him in action:

Figueroa also informed Scout.com that CSU offered his teammate Allante Battle. Battle is a 5-9 170 pound wideout with some serious speed. Battle recently won the 5A state title in the 100 meters with a time of 10.64 (electronic).

Battle holds offers from CSU, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington State and Utah.

Most schools are recruiting Battle as a WR and here are clips of him from his junior year, he caught 18 passes for 496 yards and 4 TDs. He added another 300 yards and 5 TDs rushing:

Cornerback Marc Anthony from Chandler HS (Chandler, AZ) was the third known offer of today. Anthony sent a text message saying, "I got a call from Colorado State and they said that they've offered me!"

The 6-0 185 pound Anthony is a highly recruited player, holding offers from Colorado State, Illinois, San Diego State, Oregon State, Arizona State, Wyoming, Washington State, Boise State, Washington and Utah. He currently lists a top seven of Boise State, Washington, Arizona State, Cal (no offer), Utah Washington State and Wyoming.

He looks to be the top DB prospect in the state after recording 58 tackles and 5 INTs as a junior. Here is a look at Anthony:
