Kieffer Longson has narrowed his choices to three schools but the three-star offensive tackle will take his official visits before making a commitment.
The 6-foot-7, 295-pound prospect from San Ramon (Calif.) Dougherty Valley has Ohio State, BYU and Utah remaining on his list and a decision is not expected for a while.
The Buckeyes impressed Longson on his visit to Columbus this summer and made the final cut.
"I really like the coaches and the place," Longson said. "It just seems like a really good place to be a left tackle and to become the best left tackle I could possibly be."
Longson, who plans to go on his Mormon mission directly after high school, has plenty of ties to the BYU and Utah programs and that's why both stand out so much.
"I just really like BYU because I have family there and it's a nice culture and the coaches are super cool," Longson said.
"With Utah, they put a bunch of linemen in the NFL along with the other two and I really like the coaches there and I really like the facilities. I also have family there since they're close schools."
No locations have been finalized yet for Longson's trips but he knows one will happen during the season and the other two after his senior campaign. It's undecided at this point which school will land his official visit during the season.
That almost certainly means the three-star offensive tackle will not make a commitment for many months as all three teams wait on his decision.
"I'm going to take my official visits and then decide," Longson said. "I don't have any dates yet but I'm going to take one during my bye week and then the other two after the season."
