Colby Cyburt has two offers and the Mission Viejo, Calif., offensive tackle is starting to get a feel for both programs with some possible visits coming up.
Cyburt, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect, is planning to visit San Diego State sometime soon for spring practice. The Aztecs are making a good impression on Cyburt, who said he believes the San Diego State program will be just fine under new coach Rocky Long.
"I talked to them this week and I'm probably going to be visiting for one of their spring practices next week and maybe even their spring game," Cyburt said.

"They've showed a ton of interest off the bat and it's a great school close to home. Their program is picking up."
Cyburt's other offer comes from Colorado and although he hasn't scheduled a trip to Boulder yet he's trying to find some dates that would work. He hasn't met any coaches but has been impressed by what they've said over the phone.
"They're a new addition to the Pac-10 and they're really excited about that," Cyburt said. "I'd really like to take a visit out there and I've talked to them about that. I want to get to know them better and take a look at the campus.
"It's still pretty early. I haven't met them in person, it's all been over the phone. They seem to really have it together over there and I'm really impressed with the coaching staff. It's hard to tell when I can get there. They really want me to come out there of course but it's hard with the high school schedule."
Cyburt's two favorites are teams that have not yet offered - USC and Stanford. He attended junior days at both schools and is looking forward to hearing more from both coaching staffs.
There is a good possibility he can make return trips for camps in the coming months.
"I've gone to both of their junior days and I'm going to be attending USC's camp and they're going to take a look at me there," Cyburt said. "As far as Stanford, they're waiting to see my test scores but they were very happy with me and I really like their campus and coaching staff."
