Alex Kozan strongly considered making his college decision before his senior season but with so many programs now involved the Castle Rock (Colo.) Valor Christian offensive tackle might wait a little longer so he can take official visits.
"I'm just letting it play out," Kozan said. "Looking back, I said I wanted to have something done before the season but talking more with my coach I think I might want to take some official visits to some of these schools. It's hard to get to all these schools over the summer."
Kozan, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound prospect, said LSU will be the next to offer right after he talks to coach Les Miles. That is definitely an exciting one to add to his growing list especially because of the Tigers' recent success.

"That's definitely very intriguing from a team that's a national power," Kozan said. "They've won national championships and they'll definitely be a factor in my decision. I was excited when that one happened."
Oklahoma State, Connecticut, Wake Forest and Vanderbilt have also offered Kozan, who already had Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Colorado, Colorado State, Duke, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Syracuse and Utah on his list.
There might be more offers coming, too. Auburn, UCLA and Tennessee have all stopped by his school in recent weeks and while Kozan isn't sure if more offers are coming from those teams at least there will be more interest going forward.
"It's been going good," he said. "A lot of schools have been coming to my high school to see me so I keep going through the process.
"I don't really know what close to offering means. There is a possibility there. I don't know how much all three of those schools like me. We'll see. It all depends on if it's a good fit for me and a good fit for them."
This summer Kozan plans to visit friends at Tulsa. There is a good chance during that trip he will see Arkansas and Oklahoma State and he also plans to see Oklahoma as well.
