The next week will be an interesting one for All-American offensive lineman Aaron Klovas. The 6-6, 300 pound athlete from Spanaway (Wash.) Bethel will take an official visit to Washington State this weekend and will know next Monday if Oklahoma plans to offer him.
Klovas is an elite prospect and one of the nation's finest offensive lineman. He's big as a house but can move and has a nice mean streak to him. The lineman has already taken official visits to Michigan State and Arizona State and will head to Pullman this weekend.
"Washington State is probably my top school," Klovas said. "One of the most important things I'm looking for in a college is my relationship with the school's offensive line coach and Coach Yarno is my favorite coach to talk with. I'm also looking for a school that can help me reach my goal of playing in the N.F.L and I think all the schools on my list can do that.
"With my last two trips, I'm planning to take on to Oregon for sure. I like UCLA a lot too and do still want to visit them. Oklahoma is coming to my school (Dec. 8) and they told me there's a 99% chance they're going to offer me. They love my film and said I was one of the top tackles in the country but they just want to eyeball me first before offering and that's fine with me. If they offer, I think I'll look to visit there as well and would have to bump UCLA."
Surprisingly, Klovas' childhood favorite, Washington, did not make the cut.
"I grew up a big fan of Washington and if Rick Neuheisal was there, that's probably where I would be going," Klovas said. "I just decided to go in a different direction and just feel more comfortable with the other schools on my list."
