Johnny Ragin picked up his first Pac-12 offer in the last couple days and the Wilsonville, Ore., linebacker who had a big-time summer is hoping for more.
Oregon State is the first Pac-12 offer for the 6-foot-2, 198-pound prospect as the Beavers offered after he and teammate Tanner Shipley visited for fall practice on Saturday evening.
It's a major step for Ragin, who looked good at The Opening and is now hearing from more Pac-12 schools as well.

"They have a great program, they have great coaches and they're definitely on the rise," Ragin said of the Beavers. "I'm very interested in Oregon State and we'll see how things go."
Cal is the other major program showing interest in Ragin, who already had an offer from BYU and said he plans to remain patient with the recruiting process.
The Golden Bears have looked at Ragin over the summer and said they'd like to see a few game films early in his senior season before they decide whether to offer.
It is another positive sign for the Wilsonville standout who said he wants to hear from as many schools as possible.
"They've been evaluating me a little bit during the summer," Ragin said of Cal. "The main consensus with a lot of the Pac-12 schools is they want to see my first few weeks of game film and then make a decision from there.
"I've been working hard over the summer and I hope to keep getting better in two-a-days and then in camp and do well this season and just keep going."
Ragin, who excelled on both sides of the ball during his junior season, will be a three-star prospect in the next round of Rivals.com rankings.
