Petite talks first offer

Tyler Petite recently landed his first offer from Arizona State and even though it's early the 2015 tight end said it's definitely a big one.
One of the reasons Petite especially likes the Sun Devils is because they've been playing so well under coach Todd Graham.
"It's a great offer especially with what coach Graham has done," Petite said. "That's the most impressive because their program - not that it wasn't good - but they weren't playing for a Pac-12 championship two or three years ago.
"Coach Graham came in and they played for the Pac-12 so that's pretty awesome.
"I'm definitely considering ASU. I'm not going to take an offer from such a good school lightly but it will be good to see what else comes and see where else my career goes."
It is still very early for the 6-foot-5, 225-pound prospect from Moraga (Calif.) Campolindo.
Nevada, San Diego State and San Jose State have reached out and in terms of other Pac-12 programs, Colorado is showing the most interest.
Coaches recently visited with Petite and the Buffaloes are getting more involved but no offer yet. The 2015 prospect hopes his recruitment picks up even more heading into this off-season.
"Colorado came by two weeks ago with their head coach and tight ends coach," Petite said. "We didn't go in-depth because they said they couldn't really talk to me but they wanted to see me in person and pretty much say hello.
"Other than that there's nothing else right now."
