Two offers already for OCC's Lauer
"The coaches here are great and I really liked the atmosphere here," Lauer told JCFootball.com recently. "There is a lot of talent down here and you're always going against top guys every week and every day in practice.
"I knew these coaches would get me where I wanted to go and get me ready for what lies ahead for me."
As a freshman in 2007, Lauer started the final seven games after switching on and off with the incumbent at the beginning of the season.
"After that, I had some problems with my left patella tendon and I had some tendinitis," Lauer said. "I let my grades slip too, so I redshirted last year, but everything on both fronts is fine now and I'm ready for this fall."
Lauer said he enjoys playing tackle, but he's willing to play anywhere his team needs him.
"I've played center, guard, tackle, you name it, I've played it," Lauer said with a chuckle. "I love playing tackle because it's you against the end or a linebacker and it's basically man-on-man and the better man wins.
"If playing center or guard gets me on the field quicker at the next level or one of the coaches thinks I'm better suited somewhere else, I'm willing to do that. I'm versatile and coachable so I will do whatever I have to do."
On the recruiting front Lauer has already hauled in offers from UTEP and Nevada and he said two Pac 10 programs are also making contact.
"UCLA and Arizona State have both told me they are interested in me," Lauer said. "UTEP and Nevada like me a lot and they offered a little while ago so I have some options right now, but I want to take my time, take my visits and see which other schools will look at me.
"I need to make sure I choose the right school for me and the right situation and then I can figure things out."
Lauer will have two years to play two wherever he ends up and he will be able to sign after the season during the mid-year signing period in December.
