First Pac-12 offer for Tuerk

Max Tuerk has picked up his first Pac-12 offer from Washington and he's excited about the Huskies because he likes the campus and the coaching staff but the Santa Margarita, Calif., offensive tackle doesn't want to rush things.
Before making any decisions, Tuerk wants to see which other programs get involved, he'd like to attend some camps and wants to take some visits to make sure he's making the best college choice.
Washington is standing out though to Tuerk, a 6-foot-6, 275-pound prospect who also has early offers from Duke and SMU.
"I talk to coach (Nick) Holt a lot and we're starting to make a relationship and then they called me and offered me a scholarship on the phone," Tuerk said.
"I'm really excited. I visited their school for a passing league tournament and it was really cool, it was a great campus.
"I'm definitely consulting with my coach and my parents. There are other schools that are showing interest so I want to see what's going on with them before I make a decision. I'm not sure on a timeline. I don't really know."
Over the next few months, Tuerk wants to see where he stands with Oregon and USC, two other favorites, and he'd like to attend a NIKE camp.
He has already been to USC's summer camp and wouldn't mind going back. A trip to Washington isn't planned yet but might happen as well so he could get a better feel for the Huskies.
