These days many kids earn offers based on highlight films and reputation. Offensive lineman Thomas Oser (North Hollywood, Calif./Harvard-Westlake) is doing it the old fashioned way. After recent visits to Vanderbilt, Stanford and Oregon, the three-star prospect earned scholarship offers from each program.

"It was a crazy week for me. I did a lot of traveling and wore myself out but it was well worth it," Oser said. "They all wanted me to come for a visit and take part in their camps and told me if I did well in person I would probably get an offer."

After Oser's Harvard-Westlake teammate, Chad Kanoff committed to Vanderbilt in late May, the Commodores began recruiting Oser. After a successful visit to the Commodores' camp Oser now has the option to join Kanoff in Nashville next year.
