Oregon, Vanderbilt and Stanford have emerged as the three favorites for Thomas Oser and the three-star offensive lineman from North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard Westlake is setting up visits.
The trip to Oregon is set for Sept. 22 when the Ducks host Arizona and Oser is working on visits to Vanderbilt and Stanford. He's hoping to book those for games during the season but his schedule is tough to negotiate around as well.
"Things are going well," Oser said. "I set up my first official. I'll be going up to Oregon on September 22. Right now I'm definitely trying to work out three. I already set up Oregon and then I'm in the planning stages with Vanderbilt and Stanford.
"Those are the ones I've been in contact with the most the last couple weeks and I've also been talking to Oregon State, Washington State and Utah a little bit.
"I definitely do want to go try to see games during the season. The difficult part is that there are only so many weeks I can get out. Vanderbilt and Stanford have the same bye week as me so that's a tough one. We're figuring it out. If I have to get up there after the season then that's what happens. I definitely want to take my visits."
The Oregon trip could be big for Oser, who shined at the Southern Cal Rivals.com Showcase Powered by FBU Select this summer.
USC commit Nico Falah is no longer expected to take his trip to Eugene that weekend but Oser is still excited to spend time with some other top recruits, meet some players and get a much better feel for what Oregon's program can offer.
Even if the Ducks blow him away, though, Oser is still expected to take his other two trips to Vanderbilt and Stanford and then reach a decision.
"I'm excited," Oser said.
"I'm excited to get up there and be with a couple guys I know and meet the rest of the team and see what it's like to be at the D1 level. I'm pretty excited about that so it should be an interesting trip."
