Four-star offensive lineman Alex Crosthwaite (6-5, 298, 5.1) from San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral has seen his offers rise to six, while colleges have intensified their evaluations of him so there could be more offers in the very near future as he is really picking up steam along the recruiting trail.
Crosthwaite has offers on the table from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington State, San Diego State, Minnesota and just last week, Colorado.
"Things are going real good," Crosthwaite said. "They are starting to heat up."
"Boise State, Colorado, UCLA, Washington State, Arizona State, Air Force, Harvard, Navy, and some other schools that I'm not very familiar with have come to visit," Crosthwaite said. "Miami said they will come either this week or the next week and USC too."
"Oregon's offensive line coach (Steve Greatwood). who is their area recruiter coach said he would come by the end of the month," Crosthwaite said. "UCLA's offensive line coach is probably going to come," Crosthwaite said. "Colorado State and Princeton also said they are coming. Washington also and some other schools that I can' think out off the top of my head."
Does Crosthwaite have any camps in his future?
"I signed up for the Nike Camp one in Los Angeles, but I was in Spain so I couldn't go," Crosthwaite said. "I rescheduled and I'm going to the one in Palo Alto. I don't have any other camps set up for sure."
Does Crosthwaite have any plans for unofficial visits this summer?
"I'm for sure going to take some," Crosthwaite said. "I just have to talk it over with my parents to see which ones I should go to.
"I've only gone to USC and Stanford for unofficial visits," Crosthwaite said. "I had planned to go to UCLA and Oregon this past spring, but unfortunately things came up."
"I really don't have a top school right now," Crosthwaite said. "I'm going to wait it out until my senior year to make the decision."
Crosthwaite was outstanding as a junior, earning all-state, first-team all-league and second-team San Diego Section all-CIF for his performance on a state championship team.
Crosthwaite earned a spot on the Rivals.com preseason Rivals250 team for the class of 2010.
