Tracking the Beavs' recruiting

FIVE? SIX? HOW MANY states do you figure are represented in the Beavers' known offers to class of 2011 prospects. With the May Evaluation period still ongoing, more and more are being extended as the days roll by. Seven? Eight? You're getting warmer. Nine? Keep on going...

And don't stop until you count up 11 states.

But that doesn't mean the Beavers are getting away from their core recruiting grounds, areas and ties.

California and the Pacific Northwest have been, and remain, the Beavers' bread and butter, and that's where the bulk of the recruiting efforts will be concentrated.

And that means California in particular, where 25 of the Beavs' 47 known early offers reside. In the Pacific Northwest, the Beavs have extended six known offers.

THE ANCILLARY recruiting areas, however, still comprise a substantial component for black and orange recruiting.

Arizona holds the early lead for largest ancillary recruiting area for the Beavs, with seven known offers on the table.

After that it's one or two here, one or two there. But taken together, those eight ancillary areas still hold a healthy 34 percent of the Beavs' offers.

The offers break down this way -- 25 in California, 4 in Oregon, 2 in Washington, 7 in Arizona, 2 in Texas, 2 in Oklahoma, 1 in Missouri, 1 in South Carolina, 1 in Hawaii, 1 in Illinois, 1 in Arkansas.
