The wait is finally over for Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill quarterback Sean Mannion.
After attending several camps in the hopes of picking up more interest from schools, Mannion recently landed his first offer from Oregon State.
Receiving the offer took a big weight off of the shoulders of the 6-foot-5, 205-pound pro-style passer.
"It feels great, and I'm relieved to finally get one," Mannion said. "It's an honor to get an offer."
Mannion attended OSU's camp on June 12 and felt like he showed off what he is capable of as a quarterback.
"I showed them I can make a bunch of throws and that I can throw an accurate, tight spiral," he said. "I thought it went well, but I wasn't really expecting them to offer me that quickly."
The three-star passer worked with offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf and head coach Mike Riley during the camp.
"Coach Langsdorf seems like a really good guy like all their coaches and a person I'd really like to work with in college," Mannion said. "It was my second time going up there, and I think it would be a great place to go to school."
Despite the good visit, Mannion said he's in no hurry to pull the trigger and commit to Oregon State.
"I feel like I'm not really in a rush," he said. "Now that I have an offer, I can relax a little more. I'm trying to keep an open perspective on this. It'll all take care of itself."
Another school Mannion has spoken with extensively is UCLA. He attended the Bruins' camp on June 6.
"It would be a great place to go to school," he said. "They have a really nice campus. Angus McClure has been recruiting me."
Mannion said he isn't sure if he'll attend any more camps this summer and is currently preparing for his third season as the starter at Foothill.
After leading the Falcons to a 9-3 record last fall with 2,608 passing yards and 23 touchdowns, Mannion is looking forward to his senior campaign.
"I feel a lot more comfortable now," he said. "I feel like I can relax and show what I can do, and it's going to be a lot of fun."
