Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic 2014 defensive lineman Connor Humphreys headed down to Corvallis this past weekend and came home with his first Pac-12 offer.

"I went to the Oregon State game and after they offered," said Humphreys. "Coach Gunderson was the first to talk to me, but the d-line coach, coach Seumalo, was the one that offered me this weekend."

Humphreys already held offers from Wyoming and Portland State, but the Beaver's offer held special significance.

"It's a great feeling, my goal is to play Pac-12 football," said Humphreys. "Hopefully I can start getting some more offers. Give me a variety of choices."

In addition to the programs mentioned above, others have already started recruiting the talented athlete.

"I am hearing from Vanderbilt, Nebraska, Boise State and Utah," said Humphreys. "I think all are pretty close to offering."

The 6'4" 230lbs prospect has been busy this summer and fall, visiting as many campuses as he can.

"I went to Oregon a couple times. I took an unofficial to California and to Boise State and to Washington a couple times," said Humphreys. "I may get out to Utah, Vanderbilt and Duke during spring break."

Humphreys plays all over the defensive line in high school and talked about where he will end up in college.

"Oregon State said they can see me at defensive end," said Humphreys. "But depending on how big I get, I could move to defensive tackle."

While he is willing to play anywhere coaches want him, Humphreys does have a preference.

"I mean, I like defensive end," said Humphreys. "I like being able to get around the edge with my speed."

"My speed has always been there but I can always get faster," said Humphreys. "My technique has improved, the summer camps helped with my technique. As you move on in football, everyone gets better… in the end the best technique wins."
