Days after picking up his first offer from Cal, Jared Goff landed his second Pac-12 offer from Washington State and the Kentfield (Wash.) Marin Catholic quarterback is excited how things are going.
"My coach told me they were interested and he told me they could be the next to offer," Goff said. "I didn't know it would be coming this soon right after the Cal one but I had an idea one could be coming in the future.
"It does appeal to me. They run an offense similar to what we run at Marin Catholic and they score a lot of points and throw the ball a lot which is very attractive to quarterbacks. I do like Washington State."

One of the things that appeals most to Goff about the Cougars is how the offense will be run because the 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect loves to throw the ball all over the place.
In his junior season, Goff finished with 3,220 passing yards with 44 touchdowns and four interceptions. The Marin Catholic standout believes he would fit in well in Washington State's new offense.
"That's what they were saying on the phone, it's going to be similar to what coach (Mike) Leach ran at Texas Tech," Goff said. "Mike Leach is a very good offensive mind and he knows the game well and he runs the spread offense which is very appealing to quarterbacks."
Cal is definitely being considered by Goff, whose father played baseball for the Golden Bears. But he would not call any school a frontrunner just yet because so much is changing in his recruitment now that he's picking up offers.
"I don't really have a leader right now," Goff said.
"I only have two offers and it's all coming in so fast. In a month I could have a leader but right now I really don't know. I'm still talking to the coaches and learning new things. I'll figure it out in a month or so who's the leader. I really don't know right now."
Goff has also been hearing from Stanford, USC, Washington, Boise State, Boston College, Miami and Oregon State.
