Brett Rypien has seen his recruitment get much busier in recent months and an offer from Oregon State is the latest to consider.
The 2015 quarterback form Spokane (Wash.) Shadle Park said he's definitely taking the Beavers seriously and he's even a little taken aback that Oregon State offered this early.
"It's definitely a big offer for me because it's my second one from the Pac-12 and they're a top 25 program," Rypien said. "It was pretty big to get that offer and they're definitely one of the top schools I'm looking at right now.
"I was kind of surprised they actually offered because I've been in contact with them a couple times but not enough to think they were going to offer. It was definitely huge to get that."
Rypien, who threw for 3,579 yards with 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his sophomore season, said he's been talking with Oregon State for a while.
The Spokane Shadle Park standout has been in close touch with offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf, the one who offered, and now Rypien is going to take a much-closer look at the program.
"They talked to me last spring and when I talked to coach Langsdorf, he was the one that offered me, he said they watched more film on me, they heard about me at a couple camps over the summer and they liked how I progressed," Rypien said. "That was really cool."
So far, Rypien has been offered by Boise State, Colorado State, Idaho, Mississippi State, Oregon State and Washington State. He said Notre Dame is showing the most interest at this point.
The 2015 quarterback is considering an unofficial visit to Washington State this weekend for its game against Idaho.
