Younger Oliver Getting Noticed

Brentwood (Calif.) Heritage offensive lineman Kyree Oliver, the younger brother of UCLA signee Will Oliver, is on the map with a Pac-12 offer and more Pac-12 interest...

Brentwood (Calif.) Heritage offensive tackle Kyree Oliver (6-5, 290), got some good news heading into the holiday weekend when he got his first offer.

"Coach (Mike) Tuiasosopo from Colorado called me and asked if I had any offers," said Oliver. "When I told him no, he said ‘well, we want to be the first school to offer you."

For Oliver, it was a relief to get the first offer.

"It was a relief, but I feel like I still have to prove myself my senior season and I still need to improve," said Oliver.

Oliver's older brother, Will, signed with UCLA in February after flying under the radar for much of the recruiting cycle.

With the Bruin staff making a late discovery, college coaches became more visible at Heritage this spring, hoping to make an earlier one.

"We had12-13 schools come by," said Oliver. "USC, Cal, UCLA, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho and Oregon were some of them."

Oliver said that Idaho, Nevada and Arizona could be the next crop of schools to offer him, and he's talking consistently with UCLA.

"I know a lot about UCLA with my brother going there and coach (Angus) McClure came by during the spring. I'm going to a camp there this summer. They were my first contact," said Oliver. "And Arizona has also been talking with me a lot, their offensive line coach (Robert Anae) said he just wants to show my film to the head coach and they will probably offer."

Oliver isn't in any rush to make a choice.

"I want to see what all of my different options are and take some of my visits before I decide on anywhere," said Oliver.

Oliver has been invited to the FBU Top Gun Camp in Virginia in June.
