"Oregon State was my first offer in March," offensive tackle Grant Enger said. "I really like how family-oriented the team is. They really all stick together. I also like the whole campus and the area and surroundings they're in. The atmosphere there is great and it seems like everyone really cares for each other there." The Beavers slightly lead Stanford and Washington for now.

Grant Enger the 6-foot-6, 250-pound three-star offensive tackle from O'Dea High School in Seattle, Wa., has scholarship offers from Oregon State, Stanford and Washington.

He said he now favors Oregon State slightly over Stanford, Washington, Oregon, California and Washington State.

"Oregon State was my first offer in March," said Enger, Scout.com's No. 50 offensive tackle. "I really like how family-oriented the team is. They really all stick together."

"I also like the whole campus and the area and surroundings they're in," he said. "The atmosphere there is great and it seems like everyone really cares for each other there."

Enger doesn't plan on attending any camps this summer, but will take several unofficial visits. One school he plans to visit for sure is Washington. The Huskies are only 30 minutes away, but Enger says that distance isn't a factor. "I’m not too worried about staying close to home, but I would like to play on the West Coast," Enger said.

"I'll be visiting them in a few weeks," he said. "I really like the guys there and they recruit my high school a lot so I know a lot of guys there already, which is nice."

Although he lists Oregon in his top five, Enger admits that the Ducks aren't really recruiting him.

"But Washington State seemed really interested," he stated. "They said they were going to offer, but never did. I'm really not sure how interested they are anymore."

In addition to visiting the Huskies, Enger also plans to head to California to visit Stanford and Cal. "Stanford has one of the best academics and the program is really good," he said. "I really want to go down there and see what it's like. I feel like since they've offered me, that I should at least visit them. I'll also visit Cal when I'm down there too."

"I want to be in a nice location and where it's a family atmosphere," said Enger, who never followed a particular program as a youngster.

O'Dea High School finished the year with a 13-1 record, losing to Skyline High School in the state championship game.

"I'd say I have good size and am pretty powerful," Enger said. "I never quit and play hard the whole time. I can get out in the open field and make plays, but I'd still like to get bigger and stronger and just dominate more."

Enger reports a 3.1 core GPA and a 1600 SAT (three-part) and says he wants to major in business management.
