Travis Waller has had an incredible spring. The Anaheim (Calif.) Servite four-star quarterback has landed offers from around the country. He's moved to No. 104 in the country by Rivals.com.
Now two Pac-12 powerhouses - USC and Oregon - are showing more interest in Waller and he's definitely open to listening to both coaching staffs.
USC has two quarterbacks already committed in Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure's Ricky Town and Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian Academy's David Sills but Waller said the coaches have reached out once again and could seriously pick up in recruiting him.

"They are back interested because from what USC has told my head coach, they want a guy that can run an offense how they did at Washington," Waller said in a text message.
Oregon missed on Allen, Texas, four-star quarterback Kyler Murray on Wednesday, when he picked Texas A&M over the Ducks and others, but Waller has been hearing from Oregon's staff for a long time.
The Anaheim (Calif.) Servite standout who shined at the RCS Southern California and many other events this offseason has been in regular communication with Oregon offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Scott Frost, who's made it clear that Waller has always been a priority.
With Murray going to the SEC, Waller could be one of the next quarterbacks in line to get offered by the Ducks. The four-star recruit said he's only had positive talks with Oregon's coaches.
"I know there's they hype saying "last resort" but I talked to (Oregon) weekly for a while now but coach Frost explained the whole situation to me so it makes more sense," Waller said.
"I did come up on their board late due to the fact that I blew up my junior year and not like others how they blew up sophomore year. They said I'm still high in their mind and I would be a great fit like how (Marcus) Mariota is."
So far, Waller has been offered by Alabama, Arizona, BYU, Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, Maryland, Ole Miss, Northwestern, Penn State, Tennessee, Utah, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and Washington. Rivals.com rates him as the fifth-best dual-threat quarterback in the class.
