GIOVANNI BERNARD, BROTHER OF YVENSON, HAS OSU RIDE

IF YOU'RE LOOKING for reasons why Oregon State has been ranked in the final Top 25 the past three seasons, the running game is a good place to start. The year before Yvenson Bernard burst into the 2005 limelight, OSU ranked dead last in Division I-A rushing, averaging 70.7 yards per game. Now, Riley has his targets set on another Bernard in the 2010 class -- Giovanni Bernard, Yvenson's brother.

And unlike Yvenson Bernard, who was a 2-star semi-unknown coming out of Boca Raton High in Florida, Gio Bernard will be a sought running back in the 2010 recruiting wars.

He reportedly already has offers from Oregon State, Miami, Auburn, Boston College, Maryland, West Virginia, Rutgers and Florida International.

"I don't have a bit of a clue about which one I'm favoring yet, although my brother went to Oregon State, so they might have a slight edge over the others I haven't checked out yet," Bernard told Sporting News Today.
