Versatile Kamari Pleasant of Etiwanda gets another D1 offer

Etiwanda High School senior Kamari Pleasant has excelled on both sides of the ball. But heading into this season he looked to destined to play safety in college. Well, not so fast.

Pleasant, a 6-foot-2, 185-pounder, is starting to get some attention as a wide receiver. Now he’s not being recruited as one or the other. He’s getting that proverbial tag “Athlete.”

That will should give him more options moving forward.

He has three offers – UTEP, Montana State and Oregon, with the latter coming as recently as Sunday.

“I have had a good season catching the ball and I’m getting some numbers there,” Pleasant said of the recent attention focused on him, “I am happy about that because ti gives me more options.”

Pleasant says he doesn’t prefer one over the other. He’ll do what ever gets him on the field faster.

He is actually the team’s leading rusher with 42 carries for 301 yards and two touchdowns. He has five receptions with one touchdown and has an interception on defense.

He is keeping his options open for now. He will take a visit to UCLA this weekend and one to USC the following week but those will both be unofficial. He hasn’t settled on any official trips.

The Eagles (2-3) are off the week and will start Baseline League play the following week against Upland.
