Lake Oswego (Ore.) Lakeridge defensive tackle Marqueese Royster thinks his first offer could be close.

San Jose State, I think they could be really close to offering me,” said Royster. “They like me on the defensive line, either nose, tackle or end, just as long as I get to the quarterback.

Royster has good bloodlines- his father played at Pitt before transferring to Portland State and his uncle, Mazio, was a running back at USC.

His father’s arrival in Portland kept him in the Beaver State.

“I’m actually looking to get out of Oregon and get somewhere where there is sun like Arizona State or San Jose State,” said Royster. “I also like Boise State too.”

Royster said schools like Idaho, Washington State, Temple and Montana have also been in contact with him.

Which spot he plays at the next level is still up for debate.

“I could play linebacker, but I’ve played defensive line my whole life, so I could be a really good edge rusher if I focused on that,” said Royster. “I’ll be playing end primarily but I’ll be playing a little linebacker. I’ll play wherever the team needs me though.”

Royster said he plans to camp at the Oregon NFTC and wants to visit San Jose State unofficially.

Academically, he has a 2.8 and will take the SAT next month.

Brandon is in his ninth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
