Pierre Cormier had not been talking much with Oregon State's staff so he was a little taken aback when the Beavers offered him in the last few days.
It is another Pac-12 offer for the San Diego (Calif.) Madison running back who put up impressive statistics during his junior season.
"It was a little surprising," Cormier said. "It happened pretty fast. I hadn't talked to them much before but I guess they came across my highlight tape and the coaching staff liked it so they offered. It was a little surprising since I wasn't talking to them.
"They're a good football team and they're a good program so it's really good to get another offer. I'm kind of waiting things out and seeing what else is going to pop up."
So far, Cormier has offers from Oregon State and UCLA and the 5-foot-10, 180-pound prospect is hearing mainly from Washington and Boise State.
He thinks both of those schools could also be close to offering him.
"I know I have a few other schools interested right now so I won't focus too much until the football season gets closer on which school I want to go to," Cormier said. "Right now I'm just playing it out and checking out what all the schools are about.
"I just talked to the Boise State coach earlier. He said they're pretty sure they're going to offer but they didn't offer yet. He said they're pretty sure they will.
"My coach talked to the Washington coach and he thinks they're going to offer but neither of them have offered yet. I think I should be getting one from them soon."
In his junior season, Cormier finished with 1,471 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns on 178 carries averaging more than eight yards per attempt.
This weekend, the San Diego Madison standout plans to attend UCLA's junior day on Sunday.
