One of the top offensive lineman in the West region is Gresham (Ore.) Sam Barlow's Bo Thran. Thran has been sitting on offers from the two in-state schools for the past month and that remains the case.
Thran, 6-5, 270 pounds is a standout on both sides of the ball but is getting recruited as an offensive lineman for college.
"Both Oregon and Oregon State have offered me as a right tackle," Thran said. "I've also gotten calls from Stanford, Cal, Utah and Colorado. Right now, Oregon and Oregon State are my leaders but I couldn't name a favorite between them. It's split right down the middle, the official visits will go a long way in determining my choice."
Thran's Barlow squad is 4-0 and currently ranked No. 4 in the state.
"My whole focus is on our season right now so I won't be setting up any of my trips until after we're done," Thran said. "Once we're done, I'll worry more about recruiting and trip dates."
Oregon OL coach Steve Greatwood was in attendance last Friday when Barlow defeated Tigard, who is led by Oregon State line commit Mau Nomani. From what we heard from a couple of scouts at the game, Thran was the best player on the field and really dominated the line of scrimmage. The lineman has great feet and the frame to easily get up to 300 pounds in a few years.
Academically, Thran is very solid as well carrying a 3.6 GPA with a 1560 on the SAT.
