Bruce continues to stay patient

Dalis Bruce was one of the better-looking prospects at the Stanford NIKE Camp two weekends ago and the Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista cornerback is sitting with one offer from Oregon State.
Many more offers could come for Bruce, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect who said he just plans to remain patient, talk to coaches and see where his recruitment goes over the next couple months.
Oregon State remains a serious contender for his services but with Oregon, Colorado, Notre Dame and others showing interest the Northern California standout doesn't want to make a decision just yet.
"I sat down with (the Oregon State coaches) when I visited and they said I'm still good with the offer," Bruce said. "They showed me around and I liked it. It's a pretty big deal. Oregon State is a really good school so getting that offer was a big deal to me.
"I'm just being patient because I understand it's a process. It's still early for offers if you think about it. I'm just waiting for offers and I'm getting a lot of looks. I just want to go out there and show coaches I can compete at the next level."
Oregon has shown a lot of interest in Bruce, who stood out at wide receiver during the Los Angeles NIKE Camp. He said the Ducks have already stopped by his school once and the coaching staff told him they could make a return trip.
Bruce, who has also visited Colorado and Notre Dame on unofficial trips this spring, said he's started to figure out his summer camp schedule but that he only plans to work out at schools that have shown a legitimate interest in offering.
That means Oregon State, Oregon, Colorado and Notre Dame are in good shape to see Bruce again and maybe other stops as well since programs are getting involved with him all the time.
"I'm only going to camps where the coaches told me I have the potential of getting an offer," Bruce said.
"I'm going to focus on those schools and then I'll wait for offers. I'm just being real patient."
