ROUNDUP: In-state Beaver Recruiting

THE STATE OF Oregon looks to be producing an intriguing crop for the 2014 recruiting class. Here's a closer look at some of the prospects and where they fit on the Oregon State recruiting radar...

Oregon State looks like they have some work to do to keep home the four known in-state products they've offered.

Portland tight end Henry Mondeaux has nine offers, including Oregon State and Oregon. He said he has no leaders but that Nebraska, Washington, Cal and Oregon are recruiting hardest. The Jesuit product is rated the No. 21 tight end prospect in the country and three stars.

His Jesuit teammate, linebacker Joey Alfieri (6-3, 210) has an impressive showing at the Oakland NFTC earlier this month, with the best performance of any linebacker in attendance and has earned a trip to The Opening. He holds offers from both Oregon State and Oregon, as well as three other Pac-12 schools.

Portland's Connor Humphreys, a 6-4, 255-pound defensive end, has double-digit offers including one from the Beavs and said on Tuesday that UCLA, Wisconsin, Southern California and Tennessee are the four standing out most to him right now.

Growing up in OSU's own backyard, Corvallis ATH Tanner Sanders is very familiar with Oregon State. And both his parents were student-athletes at OSU. And while he says he's very high on all things Oregon State, he also says he's leaving his options open and says no school is in the lead. Sanders' best position at the next level might be wide receiver. He also plays quarterback and safety at Crescent Valley High.

Oregon State has not offered Beaverton receiver Jordan Morgan out of Southridge High but he'll camp at OSU this June. The 6-2, 196-pounder holds offers from Arizona and others.

Portland defensive tackle Sione Taumoe'anga (6-2, 295) has offers from Portland State, Idaho, Harvard and Yale. The Roosevelt High product said earlier this month he thought Oregon State was close to offering.

Portland linebacker Ryan Nall out of Central Catholic is also another one to watch to see if he might earn an OSU offer over the summer camp months.

Tigard linebacker/fullback prospect A.J. Hotchkins has two offers, from Portland State and Idaho and said several Pac-12 schools, including Oregon State, have been by the school this spring. Hotchkins is put together at 6-0, 230.

NOTABLE NOTE:
On the Class of 2015 radar, Lake Oswego quarterback Eric Dungey said he'll be camping at OSU this summer. Portland cornerback Billy Nelson has one early offer, from Portland State, and is also receiving early interest from Oregon State.
