Tyler Foreman is excited and thankful for his latest offers from Oklahoma and Cincinnati and the Encino (Calif.) Crespi safety also hopes it's the impetus for other big-time programs - namely USC - to get more involved in his recruitment.
USC is the dream school for Foreman, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound three-star prospect, and he's planning to camp there this summer in hopes of landing another offer.
"I hope it opens up the coaches eyes at my dream school, USC, to show them I'm a physical player and I can play at that level," Foreman said. "A Big 12 school offered so that means something so I hope it opens everyone's eyes up."

Foreman, who looked good this past weekend at the Passing Down SoCal 7on7 Regional at Fullerton College, definitely doesn't want to discount his other offers though.
He was shocked to hear that Oklahoma offered and then Cincinnati followed up and Foreman said pretty much every offer that has come in so far has been a surprise.
"Everything has been a surprise," Foreman said. "When Cincinnati came up I didn't know they were going to offer me. They just said they really liked me and they wanted to offer me. When Oklahoma offered me it was a big surprise, too."
So far, Foreman has landed offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Cincinnati, Hawaii, Oklahoma and Oregon State. He said UCLA is showing a lot of interest and he's hoping to hear more from USC.
Since it's still early in his recruitment, Foreman is content on sitting back and taking his time. The three-star from Encino Crespi is not expected to make a decision until at least after his summer camp stops.
"I'm jut taking it all in because it's kind of early in the recruiting process for me," Foreman said.
"I'm letting everything come to me. I just got offered by Cincinnati and the week before that it was Oklahoma so it's a real blessing. I'm trying to sit back and let everything come in.
"I'm open to the idea of going far. I do want my family to see me but that shouldn't be a problem because I can go home and still play far away."
