Colby Cyburt planned to make his college decision before his senior season but the process has become too complicated so the Mission Viejo, Calif., offensive tackle now plans to take all his visits and make his decision in December or January.
"I would really like to take some official visits," Cyburt said. "I don't want to decide before the season. Originally, that's what I wanted to do but now I'm kind of pushing it back and I'd like to decide probably in December or January.
"I'm pretty much keeping it open. I want to take my official visits for sure, use all five of them and then hopefully get out to a few practices before the school year starts.
"I really wanted to decide in August before the season but with all the schools coming around it's just too big of a decision to rush it. I want to take my official visits and get more of a feel before I jump to a conclusion."
Cyburt, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect, said he will definitely visit UCLA, Colorado and Stanford and will probably take a trip to Oregon State as well. Arizona State, Arizona, Washington, Boston College and Harvard are also being considered.
Rivals.com rates Cyburt, a three-star prospect, as the No. 48 offensive tackle in the 2012 class and No. 53 in the California state rankings.
Earlier this off-season, Cyburt said USC, Stanford and Colorado were his three favorites but the Mission Viejo standout now says he hasn't narrowed his list down at all and will consider all his options throughout his senior season.
His official visits will be crucial in his decision-making process and said he should have those trips scheduled hopefully in the next few weeks.
"I haven't really narrowed it down," Cyburt said. "I'll probably come out with that when the season starts."
