Beverly Hills (Calif.) receiver Cameron Countryman has five offers but the 5-11, 165-pounder is hoping to add to that list.

"My offers are from Arizona State, Idaho, Colorado, Montana and Harvard but I'm also hearing from Cal, UCLA, Stanford and Washington, all as a receiver or athlete," said Countryman.

Countryman said numerous schools have been by the Beverly Hills campus.

"We've had coaches by from Northwestern, Cal, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Washington, New Mexico and Colorado by already," said Countryman.

Countryman said he has five schools standing out for him.

"My top five, in no order is Harvard, Colorado, Stanford, Cal and UCLA," said Countryman. ‘It's important for me to get a good education. I want to play football for as long as I can so will that be ending in college or go to the NFL. So it's good to go to a school that has a degree that is meaningful."

Countryman will be taking some unofficial visits in the spring and summer.

"I'm going out to Arizona State this Friday and to Harvard and Colorado at the end of June," said Countryman. "I'm just taking my time and going through the process. I want to have a decision made by the middle of football season, like in November. I'd like to take all of my official visits too."

Countryman said that Oregon, where the Paysinger cousins played after prepping at Beverly Hills (and where another Paysinger is the head coach), was the school he grew up watching and while he likes the Ducks, is wide open.

"I'm just keeping my options open at this point," said Countryman.

Track has kept him from camps most of the spring.

Academically, Countryman has a 3.4 GPA and scored an 1820 on the SAT.
