After a bunch of conversations, looking at the explosive offense and thinking about what's best, Inglewood (Calif.) wide receiver Zaire Andre is warming up fast to a Pac-12 program.
Washington State has emerged as one of the frontrunners for Andre, a 6-foot, 170-pound three-star recruit who is planning to visit Pullman soon.
"I want to go up there because I've been talking to a lot of the coaches and I've been building a lot of good relationships," Andre said.

"I wouldn't say they're the favorite but I would say they're on the top of my list right now."
Washington State has made a big jump for Andre, who also plans to visit Nebraska sometime this off-season. Neither date is set yet but Andre's father is working on plane tickets so the Inglewood standout said he's confident he'll see Pullman and Lincoln before his senior season starts.
"That's going to happen because my dad is pretty excited about going to the Big Red Day at Nebraska," Andre said. "I'm going to that and I'm going to Washington State, too, because they're pretty high on my list right now."
So far, Andre has landed offers from Houston, Nebraska, Nevada, San Jose State and Washington State.
Since the start of the spring evaluation period, many other programs have shown interest in the three-star recruit so more offers could be on the way.
Andre said Arizona State has really stepped up its interest along with Washington, Boise State, Vanderbilt and Oregon State. With so much new interest, Andre doesn't want to rush a decision anytime soon.
"They're talking about they like me really heavy," Andre said of the new schools. "They're going to go back to their coach meetings and then they'll talk about an offer."
