One of the better linebackers all week at The Opening was Daniel Halverson so it's still surprising the Portland (Ore.) Grant prospect only has offers from Air Force, Yale and Portland State.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound recruit said recruiting has picked up especially from Pac-12 schools in the last few months and he thinks things are promising moving forward.
"It's been really good," Halverson said. "The first thing that really got me on the map in a major way was the All-American combine down in Texas.

"After my performance down there people started seeing me on the national stage and coming from Oregon it's hard to get recognition but it's really picked up.
"It was frustrating but for me I just have to keep my faith and I knew it was going to come. I've finally had the chance to show myself and it's finally coming up."
What also helped Halverson, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, was that he earned the linebacker MVP award at the Stanford NIKE Camp this spring.
He said those two showings have prompted some Pac-12 schools to get involved and he's definitely looking for more attention.
"It's definitely changed," he said.
"The biggest camp this spring was the Stanford camp and coming away with the MVP for the linebackers I think a lot of the Pac-12 coaches started talking to me. I am getting more interest and I've been in contact with the coaches."
Washington has been showing the most interest and Halverson said if the Huskies offered he'd seriously consider committing.
"The school I've talked to most was Washington," Halverson said. "I've been in some contact with them. I'm just waiting it out. If Washington offers I might commit. It's close, I like it and they're showing me a lot of love. If it feels right then why wouldn't I commit?"
