Tanner Sanders took another trip to Oregon State this past weekend, once again impressed by how the Beavers are playing and where the program is headed.
It's especially important for Sanders since the Corvallis (Ore.) Crescent Valley athlete is a hometown kid and has seen significant changes at Oregon State since last season.
"Oregon State is really impressive right now," Sanders said. "I got invited to their game on Saturday. I went down to the field and I watched them. They also had someone come to my game on Friday which was great.

"The atmosphere is nuts. They're excited to go to Beaver games now. You look up in the stands and it's packed. I don't know if they had that all of last year but people are excited now and it's great.
"Especially being the hometown team where I can go down and watch them every weekend it's awesome."
Oregon State and San Diego State have already offered the 2014 prospect who's mainly being recruited as an athlete and many other programs are also getting involved.
Two Pac-12 programs especially - Oregon and Arizona State - are showing the most interest and Sanders is hearing from others as well.
"Everything is going great," Sanders said.
"I'm getting tons of letters from the Pac-12. I'm getting 7-10 letters per week from Oregon and Arizona State. Washington has been coming along with Boise State. It's going great right now and we're on a three-game win streak and I've been playing well so far.
"I'm getting recruited just as an athlete now. I'm hoping to get a few more personalized letters once the season wraps up. I know coaches are super busy so I'm just getting mainly form letters right now."
The 6-foot-5, 198-pound recruit said he's mainly hearing from all Pac-12 programs except for USC so far.
