Auburn (Calif.) Placer offensive tackle Jacob Capra (6-5, 275), reached double digit offers on Wednesday, when two more Pac-12 schools joined the mix.

“I got an offer from Oregon State and UCLA,” said Capra, giving him nine from the Pac-12.

All told, Capra has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Kansas, Oregon, Oregon State, San Jose State, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State

“I’m excited about the Oregon State and UCLA offers,” said Capra.

UCLA has a former Placer player, Eddie Vanderdoes, on the roster, and Angus McClure, who recruited Vanderdoes to Westwood, was who extended the offer to Capra.

“Coach Angus offered me,” said Capra. “I had been in contact with them beforte they offered. I’ve talked mainly to Coach Angus, but I will talk to Coach (Adrian) Klemm (Thursday). And I am talking to the head coach (Jim Mora) soon.”

Oregon State offered him, with offensive coordinator Dave Baldwin and offensive line coach T.J. Woods extending the offer to Capra.

“Coach Woods and Coach Baldwin offered and I’m talking to their head coach (Gary Andersen) very soon too,” said Capra.

Capra said no one was standing out and all of the schools recruiting him are after him hard.

“As of right now I'm talking to everyone and I'm extremely excited about each offer,” said Capra. “Schools are recruiting me as an offensive tackle but I’m open to playing anything on the field.

A year ago, Capra’s older brother, Johnny, took a road trip to several Pac-12 schools, before committing to Cal and ultimately signing with Utah.

The younger Capra anticipates doing the same thing.

“I do not have anything set in stone but I plan on making many visits and checking some schools out,” said Capra.

Capra will be at The Opening Regional in Oakland.
