Offensive lineman Kevin Danser (6-5.5, 290, 5.4) from San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep was outstanding this past weekend at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto. So much so that he took away the Camp's offensive lineman MVP Award.
It was noted that Danser was really natural getting in and out of his stance, meaning he's a natural knee bender. He displayed toughness and had long arms. It was obvious that he is well coached and has a high ceiling. The good news is he's going to get even better.
The NIKE Camp coaches noted that Danser outstanding footwork. They also liked his nasty attitude. All are good traits for an offensive lineman to have, if he wants to be successful on the D-I level.
As a junior, Danser earned first-team all-state, first-team all-league and second-team all-metro honors.
On the recruiting trail Danser has two offers from Arizona and Washington. He is getting handwritten letters from Colorado and Northwestern. Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, and UCLA are also giving Danser a lot of recruiting attention.
The NIKE Camp will not be the last camp that Danser will attend. He's in the process of figuring what other camps he's going to attend.
"I'm pretty sure I'm going to attend some team camps, but I'm not sure which ones" Danser said. "I'm going to discuss with my family which ones I'll end up going to."
What is Danser looking for in a college?
"Academics is number one," Danser said. "My parents really stress that.
"Then its location and environment," Danser said. "My brothers tell me that you spend a lot of time at the school so you better like the environment that you are going to be around the majority of the time.
"I still have a lot of time to make my decision," Danser said. "I want to make a good decision (regarding college choice) because it is a very important one."
Danser didn't have any favorites growing up was really just a fan of college football and now he's going to have his chance to play on the D-I level.
