Waialua (Hawaii) stud offensive tackle Micah Hatchie has not narrowed his list of college choices from a long list ofscholarship offers that includes much of the Pac-10. The 6-foot-5 prospect said he would like to focus on his senior season, then look to take official visits before National Signing Day.
"I am open to anyone right now. I haven't really made any plans," Hatchie said. "I would say that Oregon and Washington could be places I will visit. But I am still waiting to make those plans."
The Ducks and the Huskies are among the teams that are recruiting Hatchie "the hardest."
"There is Cal, Washington, Stanford, Oregon, and Colorado. They send me a lot of stuff in the mail and emails. And Washington State."
One can excuse Hatchie waiting to narrow his list. He is anxious to get back to playing football. He sat out the Hawaii All-Poly Camp this summer, recovering from shoulder surgery in January and dealing with possible ligament damage in his finger.
"We have been practicing everyday at four o'clock in the afternoon," Hatchie said. "I am going full go. We started last Monday. I am looking forward to the season."
Though Hatchie has yet to decide on a list of favorites, he does have several traits he is looking for in a school.
"I am looking at the school's environment, the people at the school, the team and how they interact with one another, education, and the coaches."
Hatchie is the fourth rated prospect in Hawaii according to Rivals.com.
