Crosby names two early favorites

Tyrell Crosby is just starting to see his recruitment pick up but it's already been pretty busy for the 2014 offensive tackle from Henderson (Nev.) Green Valley.
So far, Oregon, Utah, San Diego State and UNLV have offered the 6-foot-6, 296-pound prospect and he said Alabama, Washington State, Arizona State, Boise State and Nevada have been showing serious interest.
A couple early favorites have emerged for Crosby, who is starting to schedule some unofficial visits for this off-season.
"I'm really just researching all the schools but if I had to say two favorites it would be Oregon and then Utah," Crosby said.
The Ducks especially appeal to Crosby because he said his Green Valley team runs a similar offense and that is a big factor when he considers all his options.
The big 2014 offensive tackle was born in Utah and has been a lifelong fan of that program so that could be a serious consideration as the recruiting process continues to move forward.
"I like Oregon mainly because they run the spread just like my high school and then they've been known for winning," Crosby said.
"I've been a Utah fan since I was born because I was born in Salt Lake City. I like that program."
Crosby will get a chance to see both colleges soon. The Henderson Green Valley standout plans to take an unofficial trip to Utah in March and then see Oregon sometime in April.
No other trips are scheduled at this point but with new interest coming in all the time there's a chance Crosby could hit the road more leading into his senior season.
