Bryan Picks Up Offer

Casper (Wyo.) Natrona offensive tackle Taven Bryan picked up another offer this past weekend from one of the Pac-12's top schools.

Taven Bryan added to a fifth offer to his list after a quick visit to Oregon this weekend. The offer came from offensive line coach Steve Greatwood.

"They like that I'm really big, I'm fast, I'm athletic for my size," Bryan said. "They think I'll do well wherever I play. They're recruiting me as more of an athlete than a specific position, so they think I can do just about everything is what it sounds like."

The 6-foot-4, 250-pound athlete said that he liked the way Oregon conducts its program in different ways.

"I like their philosophy of more of a scientific approach than just 'it's tradition and that's what we do'," Bryan said. "That's very nice about a program like that."

According to Bryan, the Ducks would have offered him sooner, but they wanted to see if he passed the eye test in front of the coaches. He stuck around Eugene briefly before going to catch a flight, but wants to return.

"I'm probably going to go to a one day camp at Oregon," Bryan said. "I didn't get to spend much time to visit them. I was only down there for like four hours."

Along with a trip to Washington this weekend, Bryan has also visited Oklahoma, Nebraska and Wyoming already and said he's looking for a school that is going to be the perfect fit for him. However, he's in no rush to make a decision or breakdown his favorites.

"I'm not really ranking schools right now," Bryan said. "I'm kind of early into the process so I'll get more of a feel for more schools and then I'll have a ranking."
