Thomas Oser's top three schools couldn't be any more different.

Oregon is stylish with thousands of jersey combinations and nationally known for a high-powered fast-paced spread attack.

Stanford is all about the ground and pound power rushing attack with big offensive linemen and big backs.

And many see Vanderbilt as an up and coming SEC program that could be dangerous in years to come. For Oser, each program stands out for different reasons.

"My head coach implemented the Oregon offense at our high school so I feel very comfortable in the offense and I feel like it would be a good transition for me to step in and understand what's going on right away," he said. "Their speed is unmatched and it gives me a chance to show off my athletic ability."

Just 560 miles south of Eugene is Palo Alto, where the Cardinal offense is intriguing because of its unfamiliarity to Oser.

"Stanford is a great program. I like how they pound the ball," he said. "I'm interested in it because it's something I haven't done for the past two seasons but it's something I feel like I could fit well in, anyway. And obviously they're a great academic school so that's another reason why I really like them."

Across the country, the Commodores of Vanderbilt represent and entirely different culture compared to the two West Coast programs.

"That's probably the most intriguing thing to me about them, they're in the SEC," he said. "It's a big conference and everyone knows that's real powerful football right there. When I went down there for camp I really liked the city and what I saw and I think it'd be a cool place to be for four or five years."

Having already taken an official visit during the season to the Ducks, Oser will travel to Stanford on January 10th and Vanderbilt on January 25th.

Oser also added he'll ultimately be looking for the program that he feels most comfortable in.

In the meantime, he is an All-Star selection for the SemperFi West team and is soaking in the experience in Carson, California.

"I'm very excited. It's going to be a really fun time. I know some of these guys from the camp circuit so I'm looking forward to showing what I got," he said excitedly. "I'm just looking forward to getting the pads on again and one last chance to play in high school before making the jump to the next level."
