Crane has busy schedule ahead
Dane Crane has already landed offers from Colorado and most recently Washington and the Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita center is hearing from many other schools.
Included on that list for the 6-foot-3, 313-pound three-star prospect is Florida State and Crane said the Seminoles have discussed a possible offer at some point soon in his recruitment.
"The offensive coordinator, I've talked to him, and we had a good conversation," Crane said.
"He said he could offer but nothing is official yet. He said the offensive line coach, coach (Rick) Trickett, is going to be calling my coach, coach (Harry) Welch, to give the head's up to my coach. That was kind of a surprise."
Crane, rated as the fourth-best center by Rivals.com, is taking a visit to San Diego State soon and the Aztecs could be close to offering as well. The Santa Margarita standout has been talking to that staff for a while and is looking forward to the trip.
"I'm not going to say I'm positive because it's hard to read," Crane said about getting the San Diego State offer. "I talk once a week to coach (Kevin) McGarry and they said they like my film and they want me to come down and meet all the coaches. I want to see the campus a little bit."
A trip to Colorado's spring game is in the works for Crane, who is also considering a return trip to Tennessee for summer camp.
The three-star visited Knoxville in recent months but was not offered so he's thinking about going back to work out in front of the coaching staff.
"It's still up in the air," Crane said about heading to Tennessee. "I think I still want to go back for the camp in June but I'm undecided on that. I think I'll go back for that camp though.
"(With Colorado) I've talked with all the coaches on the phone. I met coach (Steve) Marshall my sophomore year. He came out for spring practice. That's where the relationship was established. I'm really excited to get out to campus, meet face-to-face and see if it's a place where I could fit in."
