While the Woodland Hills Wolverines have never really established themselves as a program known for a lethal passing attack, one of the turquoise and black’s top returning wide receivers is attracting notable Division-1 interest and offers.
Shakim Alonzo, a 6’5, 200-pound wideout for Woodland Hills, has currently received seven verbal Division-1 offers, according to national recruiting service Scout.com. Alonzo’s offers have come from Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Pitt, Temple, Toledo and Wisconsin. Scout and Rivals.com also show the WH senior-to-be has received interest, but no offers, from programs like Maryland, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers, Syracuse and West Virginia.
Alonzo was one of two Wolverine receivers with at least 20 receptions last season (Devon White was the other) in an aerial assault spearheaded by quarterbacks Pat Menifee and Jevonte Pitts that averaged 88.4 yards per game. He finished his junior season with 23 receptions for 512 yards and five touchdowns, averaging 22.2 yards per reception and 39.4 yards per game. Alonzo caught a pair of passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in the WPIAL AAAA championship game against North Allegheny.
Woodland Hills finished 9-4 overall in 2010, shaking off a 1-3 start to its season to reach the WPIAL AAAA finals at Heinz Field before falling to eventual PIAA AAAA champion North Allegheny, 21-14.
