Scarlett could land offers soon

Cameron Scarlett has already heard from many Pac-12 schools and now the 2015 running back is waiting for the offers to start arriving.
Things sound promising for the Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic standout and one school in particular - Oregon State - sounds like it could be the closest to an offer.
"I haven't really heard from any new schools but at least most of the Pac-12 has been in at least a little bit of communication with me," Scarlett said. "I've heard more from schools like Oregon State. They said they're going to pull the trigger real soon and they want to be the frontrunners.
"Arizona and Arizona State have expressed a lot more interest also. Cal has been very interested and Stanford came and talked with me, too. Oregon was at my practice not too long ago."
An Oregon State offer would be interesting. Teammate Ryan Nall is already committed to the Beavers and Scarlett said he'd prefer to stay closer to home.
A lot of good things are happening in Corvallis and Scarlett, the top-rated player in the 2015 Oregon state rankings, said he's very interested in the program.
"That would be really good," Scarlett said. "The other running back, Ryan Nall, on my team is committed to Oregon State and I went on an unofficial to their game and I really liked what they had there. They're building and that's what they told me.
"I'm trying to stay somewhat close to home. I'm not trying to go too far. I'm looking everywhere though."
Cal is one of the schools showing interest in Scarlett, whose brother, Brennan, plays in Berkeley but he said that shouldn't be a major factor in his decision-making process.
"It's a consideration but it's not going to be a big factor," Scarlett said. "He would only be there for one year anyway."
