Malik Cyphers is researching schools to see which ones he might want to take unofficial visits to and two programs have emerged in recent weeks.
Oregon and Boise State are the frontrunners and even though it's still early for the 2014 cornerback from Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian, visits could be coming up just to see what he thinks of the two teams in person.
"I know right now the top two schools I want to see the most are Boise State and Oregon," Cyphers said.
"I was going to take some visits there and I might do it during my bye week. I'm trying to talk to both schools to see which games I can go to.
"So far, those are the two schools I want to see."
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound cornerback said Oregon and Boise State along with Washington, Cal, Washington State, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and Colorado State have been showing the most interest.
The Ducks and Broncos stand out for numerous reasons and that's why Cyphers has targeted those two teams to hopefully see sometime this season. He's in the process of scheduling some trips.
"The environments stand out," said Cyphers, who lists an offer from SMU.
"The facilities are great and I watch them on TV and I think to myself those are the two schools I really want to check out and see what it's like in person. I want to ask the coaches some questions about my future there."
Cyphers' junior season is going well.
Oaks Christian is 5-1 and last week in a 36-6 victory against Thousand Oaks the junior cornerback finished with four tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and three deflections.
