“I am actively considering all opportunities that have been presented to me.  This position with (today’s company) sounds like it is a perfect fit for my career aspirations, and I look forward to hearing if you also think I would be a good fit in the position.”

Be vague.  There’s no reason to hide that you have other offers, but there’s no reason to go into detail about the specifics of it.

I would talk to the recruiter now.  Why was this mentioned? 

 

Maybe you should refer questions about that topic to the recruiter.

@RunnerBride13:  how would they know you have another offer? Really it’s good they do: it makes you look valuable and puts some pressure on them to make a move.

i would keep it very vague with a hint of dissatisfaction. Re:salary “we haven’t discussed specifics but it sounds like it’s going to come in low for me. I like to have as many irons in the fire as possible as I am looking for the best job for my career- not just jumping at the first offer.   your company is a better fit for me because of x,y,&z

Its good if they know for sure you’d prefer them… But you’re such a valuabled worker you will be snatched up soon if they don’t make a move.
