Oregon State holds the advantage in the recruitment for Treshon Broughton but the Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta cornerback isn't ready to make a decision.
Before the 5-foot-11, 170-pound three-star picks a school, Broughton wants to take visits and there's no time for that yet since Vista Murrieta is still in the playoffs.
"They're saying they want me to come up but we just have to schedule it," Broughton said of the Oregon State coaches. "I'm really looking forward to it a lot. I'm excited, really excited.
"They seem like they're really interested in me and I like that a lot. They seem like they really care about me and that's where I want to go - somewhere where the coaches care about me on the field and off the field."
The Beavers' successful season is also helping with Broughton, who leads Vista Murrieta against Corona (Calif.) Centennial this weekend. He's been following Oregon State's year closely and likes what he's seen.
"It's an amazing season," Broughton said. "It's a little surprising."
Fresno State and New Mexico State are the other two serious contenders in Broughton's recruitment and other visits could be planned after his season concludes.
Oregon State is the team to beat, though, even if Broughton doesn't want to make any declarative statements until he can take some trips.
"I just want to take my visits after the season and be 100 percent sure where I want to go," Broughton said. "I don't want to commit somewhere and not be sure about it."
