Crunch time for Bierria

Keishawn Bierria has a lot to consider in the next few days.
The Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne three-star outside linebacker visited Washington this past weekend, was offered by the Huskies and said his final decision will come on National Signing Day.
Bierria, a 6-foot-1, 212-pound recruit, is basically down to Washington and Oregon State after he did not visit Oregon this past week.

One of the factors that could be pulling Bierria to Washington is that teammate and friend Troy Williams is there and playing together in college might be of interest.
But Bierria said during his visit he also bonded with other Washington players and that could play a factor in his decision.
"What stood out most to me on the trip was the chemistry I have with some of the players and other recruits besides Troy Williams," Bierria said.
The academics will also play a factor for Bierria, who finished with 87 tackles in his senior season.
"Also how highly the business major is ranked which is important because I'm interested in majoring in business," Bierria said.
But Oregon State is nowhere near counted out yet.
The Beavers have been Bierria's top school leading into this last week and he even showed up to the recent South Bay BMW West Coast Bowl wearing an Oregon State sweatshirt.
Bierria said a final decision will come soon.
"They were probably my second offer when I came into high school and they constantly hit me up every time they get a chance," Bierria said of Oregon State. "They visit me a lot and it felt great being around those coaches."
