As the calendar rolls from July to August it marks a big day for college football. August 1st is the first day that high school football prospects from the 2017 class can receive written scholarship offers.

It is no secret that Gary Andersen and his staff have been making recruiting a priority. And they wasted no time in getting their written scholarship offers out as soon as possible.

The offers have been rolling in and they have gotten even more elaborate. When schools battle for top recruits they constantly look for ways to stand out and separate themselves. Oregon State is no different and they did a great job with their official offers.

Among those to post their official offers were Oregon State commits Arex FlemingsBrock WellsfryFabian Kratz and Isaiah Miller. Here's an example of Oregon State's official offer: (courtesy of Arex's Twitter)

Other high school recruits to receive Oregon State offers and post them to Twitter are listed below: (click on the players names to see the tweets)

Also, Jeffery Manning Jr, a 3-star cornerback decommitted from UCLA today. He went on to announce that his recruitment is 100 percent open. He also posted his official Oregon State offer on Twitter and is a guy Gary Andersen and his staff will be recruiting heavily in the coming months.

Obviously with so many guys receiving offers (and these were only the ones who posted them on Twitter) Coach Andersen and his staff are not expecting them all to choose the Beavers. With 13 recruits having already verbally committed to Oregon State; the 2017 class is getting closer and closer to completion. Landing a few of these three and four star recruits would really give Oregon State's 2017 recruiting class a big boost though.

In other recruiting news, Antwan Collier a top defensive back from Florida has decided to attend Illinois and announced his decision on Twitter today. He was someone Oregon State was heavily recruiting and hoping to earn a commitment from.
