Santini starting to heat up

Earlier this month at the Los Angeles Under Armour Combine, Chris Santini was nervous because he hadn't received any offers yet but felt he was close to his first one.
How things have changed in the last few weeks.
Oregon State is the latest school to offer Santini, a 6-foot-1, 203-pound safety from San Jose (Calif.) Leland who has also picked up offers from Boise State and San Jose State since the Under Armour workout. In his junior season, Santini finished with about 100 tackles.
"If I get that first one out of the way I think they'll pick up after that," Santini said at the time.
"It's stressful. I'm stressed out right now. I think the times are such a big deal and I feel like if I mess up then my stock goes down."
Santini's stock is going nowhere but up.
Oregon and Syracuse are two other schools showing interest in Santini, probably the best-looking prospect physically at the Under Armour Combine. If Santini continues to grow, he could move to outside linebacker in college.
This weekend Santini is expected to take unofficial visits to Arizona and Arizona State. Later in April, he will visit Boise State for it's junior day. That will be an especially important trip since he already has an offer from the Broncos.
Cal, Colorado State, Nevada, Penn State, Tennessee, UCLA, Washington and Washington State are a few other schools listed on his Rivals.com database page.
