Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos quarterback Richard Brehaut (6-2.5, 205), who was just bumped up to four-stars by, has had a busy week, adding four more offers to the mix.

"Arizona just offered me on Tuesday, Louisville and Idaho State offered (Thursday) and Kansas offered me (Friday)," said Brehaut. "Those go with Colorado, Washington State, San Diego State and Boise State. Arizona State has verbally offered me but I haven't gotten the official offer yet."

And Brehaut is feeling like that's just the beginning.

"Right now, I'm getting a lot of interest from Oregon State, and they're coming down on May 6th. That is the same day that Notre Dame is coming. Purdue and Kansas State are also coming this week. UCLA is talking to me a lot, but they're not doing anything with an offer until their camp."

Brehaut was at UCLA's Spring Game last weekend at the Rose Bowl, and he also was at one of UCLA's Junior Days earlier in the spring.

"I talked to Coach (Rick) Neuheisel and he was excited to have me down there. I talked to him more when I was at the Junior Day they had during their spring practice and I also talked to Norm Chow then. UCLA is definitely a school I have a lot of interest in," said Brehaut.

Brehaut is more than willing to wait to see what UCLA does in offering a quarterback, as he doesn't see himself making a decision anytime in the near future.

"I don't see myself making a decision until probably some time in either July or August," said Brehaut. "After I've seen all those schools, I want to see what I have and then I'll choose."

Brehaut is keeping himself busy in June, going to Oregon State and Oregon in the middle of the month for a camp as well as Boise State, then to Nebraska and Washington State later in the month.

He's also not ready to make one school the favorite. "The schools that have offered, I'm keeping them all considered, but I'm really wide open, since more schools are getting involved," said Brehaut. "Especially because the schools that are starting to keep in contact aren't just Pac-10 schools, but Big 12 and ACC schools too. It's a little more stressful with more schools offering but its all for the better."

Brehaut has received offers from schools across the country, and he's completely open to leaving the West.

"Location is not a factor at all," said Brehaut. "In fact, I'm starting to talk to Clemson a lot and Oklahoma contacted me last week. So I don't mind leaving California."

Brehaut is hoping to take an unofficial visit to Arizona State at some point this spring before he begins the camp tour. He'll be at the Elite 11 Camp at Berkeley and the Nike Camp at Stanford the next day then will be at the UnderArmour/ Combine in Los Angeles at the end of this month.

Last fall, Brehaut passed for 2,348 yards and 22 touchdowns against eight picks and completed 65% of his passes. He rushed for 528 yards and five touchdowns.

Academically, Brehaut is carrying a 3.6 GPA and scored a 1640 on the SAT. He'll retake it on May 3rd.

"I want to get around an 1800," said Brehaut, who's already qualified by NCAA standards. "I just want to be in the running for any school that's interested."
