Academic Hitch

California defensive back Bobby Guillory (5-9, 173, 4.4) now says his only written offer has come from Idaho, with the rest of his overtures being oral.

"Idaho is my only written offer right now. They, as well as USC, Oregon and Oregon State, are my top schools that I'm looking at, but I've just got verbals from the coaches at USC, Oregon and Oregon State. They all really want me to get my grades up before they offer.

"I think Idaho and Oregon are the schools that are recruiting me the hardest. I'm going to try and get out to Idaho before the season starts just for an unofficial visit. I think I'll be out there on August 27.

"I've been able to get out to USC for some unofficial visits this past summer to check out the campus and the program there. They've still got the edge on the other schools in my top list. I like the academics there and the football program. The academic program there would be good for me I think.

"I talked with one of the coaches there about the major that I'm looking into, dealing with a wildlife program. I think that USC has got one, but theirs is a little less detailed than the one at Idaho," he said.
