Humphreys staying busy

It has been a busy spring for Connor Humphreys and that should continue with more programs coming in to check out the four-star defensive end and then a packed schedule of visits this summer.
The 6-foot-3, 266-pound prospect from Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic said Cal has stopped by once already and is expected back at his school soon with two coaches. The Golden Bears have already offered but appear to be really stepping it up in Humphreys' recruitment.
"There have been some schools coming by and checking me out, watching me work out," Humphreys said.
"The most recent ones were Stanford and Boise State. Cal was there last week and Cal is coming back with coach (Andy) Buh, their defensive coordinator, so coach (Barry) Sacks and coach Buh will be here. They're definitely showing me that they want me."
USC was supposed to stop by Portland Central Catholic on Monday and Boston College, Arizona State and Tennessee are all expected there soon.
With new offers coming in all the time and more programs getting involved, Humphreys said he doesn't want to rush anything at this point.
"I'm just playing it out like I've always been," Humphreys said. "Next month I'll have my top four or five and those will be the schools I want to visit in the summer and then once I visit those schools I'll get officials for the fall."
Humphreys, one of the MVPs at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles, said he definitely wants to visit Wisconsin and Tennessee along with UCLA. He could take another trip to USC and he said Oregon State and Cal remain under serious consideration for visits, too.
The trips outside the Pac-12 could be crucial since Humphreys has never been to either state and he wants to get a much better feel for Tennessee and Wisconsin especially since both programs have new coaching staffs.
"I've never been to either of those states so I just want to check it out and see how the city is and see how everyone likes the program," Humphreys said.
"I'd like to talk to some of the players and see how they like the coaches because they're both new coaches at both of those programs. I want to meet all of those coaches."
