More new offers for Beaver

Brandon Beaver continues to pick up offers as the Compton (Calif.) Dominguez cornerback proves to be one of the biggest names in Southern California for the 2012 class.
Tennessee and Arizona State are the two latest offers for Beaver, a 6-foot-1, 176-pound prospect who also has Boise State, Colorado, Fresno State, New Mexico, New Mexico State, SMU, UCLA and Washington on his list.
Both new offers are big and give Beaver something to think about moving forward.
"Coach (Derek) Dooley and coach (Terry) Joseph from Tennessee came to talk to me," Beaver said. "I feel like it's an honor for an SEC school to come all the way to California to offer me. I'm really interested in the SEC because I like the competition and the challenge there.
"Arizona State offered, too. Ever since I visited for their camp in the summer, I liked their campus and how everything was looking. I liked coach (Greg) Burns and I like the program over there."
It's still early in his recruitment but Beaver said at this point UCLA and Washington still stand out the most.
The two Pac-12 schools have been involved for a while with Beaver and he likes something a little different about each place.
"I like Washington because it's an up-and-coming program and they're starting to win," Beaver said. "Coach (Demetrice) Martin is a really cool coach and I know if I go up there I'll be ready to go to the next level.
"At UCLA, I like the tradition up there. Even though the program is rebuilding I think I can contribute to that and be part of UCLA winning again."
There is a good chance more offers will come for Beaver, who said Oregon and Cal are showing the most interest.
The Golden Bears are especially getting heavily involved and he's supposed to visit Berkeley for a junior day soon. It wouldn't be a shocker if he picked up an offer soon after that event.
