Poutasi looking ahead to Big 12 trip

Utah remains the leader for Cedrick Poutasi even though he couldn't make a second trip there last weekend but the Las Vegas (Nev.) Desert Pines offensive lineman is visiting Oklahoma State in early December and seems really excited about seeing that school.
Poutasi, who was just offered by the Cowboys last week, will be in Stillwater for the Oklahoma State-Oklahoma game on Dec. 3 and said he's really excited to see the atmosphere there.
"It's going to be really big," Poutasi said.
"It's the first Big 12 school on my list and it's like football country out there. When I'm out there they're going against their biggest rival so it's going to be like a whole new atmosphere to me. I'm looking forward to going there."
Poutasi, a 6-foot-5, 322-pound four-star prospect, was supposed to take his mother to Utah this past weekend to show her the campus - and he said the Utes are still the leader - but they couldn't make the trip.
He has talked with the Utah coaching staff and said everything is still good between the two sides.
"I couldn't make it out financial-wise," Poutasi said. "At this point I'm not sure if I'm going to take another visit out there.
"Everything is cool with Utah. I would say they're still the leader."
Arizona State is also in Poutasi's top three and he said he even considered committing to the Sun Devils during his visit in late September but decided to hold off.
Good thing since Utah has moved to the top of his list after his recent trip there and he's waiting to make a decision until he gets back from Oklahoma State, which is gaining ground in his recruitment.
Rivals.com rates Poutasi as the eighth-best offensive guard and No. 219 prospect in the 2012 class. He's second in the Nevada state rankings.
