No Leader for Mondeaux

Portland (Ore.) Jesuit tight end Henry Mondeaux has nine offers, including all four Pac-12 schools in the Northwest.

"Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Cal, Nevada, Nebraska, Boise State and Arizona State have all offered me," said Mondeaux.

Mondeaux said another Pac-12 school and two SEC schools have also been picking up their interest.

"I've been talking a lot to USC, Vanderbilt and Tennessee," said Mondeaux.

And while Mondeaux didn't name a top five or favorites, he said three schools were recruiting him the hardest.

"I'd say right now, Nebraska, Washington, Cal and Oregon are recruiting me the hardest," said Mondeaux.  "I'll narrow down my list this summer.  I want to take at least three of my five official visits (during the season)."

Pac-12 Trip Coming Up for Morgan

Beaverton (Ore.) Southridge receiver Jordan Morgan will hit the road this next weekend for another Pac-12 visit.

"I'm going to Arizona this weekend and I'm excited about that," said Morgan.  "They were my first Pac-12 offer."

Morgan is sitting on seven offers and a couple more Pac-12 schools are watching him.

"I have offers from UNLV, San Jose State, Portland State, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana and Air Force," said Morgan.  "Arizona State, I've been talking to a lot and I've been talking more with Matt Lubick at Oregon and they're really interested and they've been watching me and want me to come to their camp and if I perform well, I could get an offer.  Washington State is close too and Boise State wants me to come to their camp too."

Morgan said he'll also likely camp at Oregon State this summer.

Summer Trim for Baker

Bellevue (Wash.) safety Budda Baker is the top prospect in the Pacific Northwest in 2014 and he's got offers from everywhere, including all of the Pac-12.

But a list trim is coming soon.

"Pretty soon actually," said Baker.  "I want to get into the regular season with the five schools that will get my official visits.  I'll narrow it down soon.  I'm not committing early, though, I'm doing it after the season and taking all five trips.

There are three schools that Baker said are definites to make the cut.

"Washington, UCLA and Oregon for sure," said Baker. 

Baker will attend the Oregon NFTC next month and said he's planning to camp at Washington's Rising Stars and UCLA's Elite Camp in June.

Chico Is the Man

Federal Way (Wash.) 2015 running back Chico McClatcher is up to seven offers now with five from the Pac-12.

"My offers are from Portland State, Washington, Utah, Arizona State, UCLA, Boise State and Washington State," said McClatcher.  "They're all kind of as an athlete, but I'm trying to show colleges I can be an every down back."

McClatcher plans to camp at USC and Oregon, and is hopeful an offer will come from each.

"Coach Campbell at Oregon came by and I think they're close to offering and I'm going to their camp," said McClatcher.  "And I'm planning to do USC's camp this summer too."

McClatcher said he'll also be doing the Oregon NFTC in June and the Barton Showcase at the end of June.
