Long and lean offensive linemen haven't often been the norm at Utah with the Utes often using bigger and bulkier players. With the move to a more up-tempo offense and the Pac 12 perennially filled with speed pass rushers coming off of the edge, guys like Serra Jack Dreyer are going to be more of a priority going forward.
"Things are going great with my recruitment. I'm blessed to get all of these offers and be able to select the school that I'll be spending the next four or five years at."
At 6-8, 289 pounds, Dreyer has perfect size for an offensive tackle, and Pac-12 schools are taking notice.
"Currently I have offers from Harvard, Yale, Brown, Oregon State, Arizona State, Utah, Washington State, and Colorado along with a few others. I'm considering all of my options and want to stay open to everyone right now."
Dreyer is planning to hit the road a bit over the summer to give him a better idea as to what each school has to offer.
"I've got a week off in July and another one in August. I'm going to take some trips, but I'm not sure where yet. I'll probably go to the local camps at Stanford and Cal as well."
Dreyer will be shortening up his list after those summer visits, but won't decide on his future home until after all five official visits are completed.
"I'm looking to narrow down my list to 5 schools over the summer and then take my official visits. I'm not sure which schools I'll be visiting, but I would love to get a taste of each part of the country if I can."
As Utah tries to make stronger in-roads in Northern California, offensive line coach Jim Harding has been hitting up schools left and right and developing relationships, something that is imperative in landing kids like Dreyer.
"Utah is a great school and in a great location. It's a beautiful area and them beating Stanford last year speaks for itself. The academics are solid. I'm definitely considering Utah. Coach Harding came by a few weeks ago and we talk every couple of weeks. He's been telling me all about the program and the school."
Will Utah end up being the school that lands the three star? They seem to fit all of the criteria.
"A great football team where I can grow into a good player and excel off the field as well. Also a school that offers great academics and has my major, which will be either business or pre-med."
