Devin Lucien has offers from Illinois, Colorado and Tulsa but said his dream school is in the Pac-10 and if they were to offer the Encino (Calif.) Crespi wide receiver then his recruitment could get interesting.
Oregon is the top team for Lucien, who has not been offered by the Ducks but said he's "pretty positive" one will come at some point.
The big connection is that Oregon signed former four-star Crespi quarterback Bryan Bennett in its 2010 recruiting class and playing together again would be something special.

"I'm open to anywhere but my dream school is Oregon," Lucien said. "Me and Bryan have a great connection and he's going there. I like the whole setup with the spread offense that they run, their coach seems like a really great guy and I love their wide receivers coach, coach (Scott) Frost.
"He seems like a really good guy. It would be a really good fit seeing how they have a lot of receivers leaving and I want to play early so that would be great.
"I feel like if we both went there we would just build on what we had in high school because (Bennett) and I had a lot to offer not only to our team but to everybody that had something to do with Crespi. I feel like if we went to Oregon we could continue what we had on the rise at Crespi."
Lucien, a 6-foot-1, 189-pound recruit, was one of the top receivers at the U.S. Army National Combine - where he was timed at 4.0 seconds in the shuttle - and one of the best-looking prospects at the recent Rivals.com Five-Star Academy at UCLA so his stock is on the rise.
California is also showing serious interest in Lucien, who said Arizona, Arizona State and pretty much "the whole Pac-10" is talking to him.
Among his offers, Lucien said Illinois carries the most weight followed by Colorado and Tulsa. He doesn't plan to take any visits to the schools that have offered until he sees which new offers come through this summer.
"Illinois is obviously the best school," Lucien said. "They have a great program there. Order-wise, it would go Illinois, then Colorado, then Tulsa. I'm very high on all of them though. I like all the colleges."
There are plans to attend the USC Rising Stars Camp, the Los Angeles Nike Camp and some other stops that have yet to be finalized. Lucien was invited to the Football University Top Gun Camp in Paisley, Fla., but finances to get there could be an issue, he said.
