Evan Voeller already has offers from Purdue, UCLA and Washington and so the 2013 offensive tackle from West Linn, Ore., has emerged as one of the top players in the Pacific Northwest for next recruiting cycle.
"It's exciting," Voeller said. "Hopefully I'll have a big spring and more will come in but it's been exciting so far."
Michigan, Oregon and Stanford are three other programs showing interest in Voeller, who has already taken unofficial visits to Washington and Oregon but said it's too early to name a frontrunner.

As for his recruitment, Voeller said he'll take his time, look over all the programs that are interested in him and he's especially interested in finding a place that not only boasts a good football program but also a solid academic reputation.
"I don't really have a favorite," Voeller said. "I'd like to learn a lot more about a bunch of schools before I pick my top schools.
"It doesn't matter if I stay in the Pac-12. My main focus is picking a good school and a good football program. That's the main thing for me."
Voeller, who said he'd like to visit Stanford this season if at all possible, has definitely been impressed with Oregon and his trip to Washington also stood out - he went to see the Huskies play the Ducks earlier this month - and said he was surprised at how loud the stadium got during the game.
He thought it was louder at Washington than at Oregon's Autzen Stadium, one of the best environments in all of college football.
"I definitely want to learn more about all of them but I went up to Washington for a game and that was fun," Voeller said. "It was definitely fun. It was really loud. I thought it was louder than Autzen."
