Eddie Vanderdoes has two early offers from Oregon State and San Jose State but the 2013 defensive end from Placer, Calif., doesn't intend to make his decision anytime soon especially because so many other Pac-12 clubs are interested in him.
That's good news for Vanderdoes because the 6-foot-4, 285-pound prospect said he sees himself playing in the Pac-12 and receiving so much interest early in his recruitment is a positive sign.
"I see myself as a Pac-12 kind of guy," Vanderdoes said.

"That's probably where I want to play. It's close to home and people can come see me play."
UCLA, Oregon, Nebraska, Arizona, Texas A&M, Utah, Cal and Stanford are all showing early interest in Vanderdoes, who had 10 tackles and two sacks in Placer's first two games this season.
The Ducks have taken a slight edge in his recruitment especially because there are a lot of things in Eugene that Vanderdoes likes.
"Oregon is one of my favorites," Vanderdoes said.
"I just really like their campus and their facilities. I like how they play football. Their uniforms and their stadium are great, too. I also just really like the state of Oregon. It's really nice up there and the campus is really nice, too."
With so much early interest and a couple offers, Vanderdoes said he's pleased with how his recruitment is going so far but he's definitely looking for more offers before making a decision.
The best situation for the 2013 standout is to commit sometime after his junior season but if he's still waiting on some offers Vanderdoes said he could wait until later in his high school career.
"In a way I want to commit early, I'm kind of looking for a few offers right now, but it all depends," Vanderdoes said.
"After my junior year it would be nice to commit but I could wait until my senior year. It's still really early for me. A lot could depend on my season this year."
