Fast rising offensive tackle Evan Finkenberg (6-5, 255, 4.8) from Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Tesoro has come a long way since last summer when his head coach, Brian Barnes asked him to move from tight end to offensive line.
Finkenberg has three offers on the table from Arizona State, Washington State, and Colorado. He has taken two visits. Just this past weekend he visited Arizona State.
"My visit to Arizona State was great," Finkenberg said. "I love all of their coaches. They are really experienced.
"I was also able hang out with the players and check out the facilities," Finkenberg said. "They were top notch."
"I was given the chance to speak with Coach Dennis Erickson and offensive line coachGregg Smith," Finkenberg said. "Both coaches have a lot of experience and are knowledgeable. I liked them both a lot."
"I wasn't tempted to commit because I want to talk to my family a little bit more," Finkenberg said. "I'm going to go over all my options and then I will decide where I want to go."
"I am talking to Colorado right now," Finkenberg said. "Colorado has to figure out if they have room for me. If they do, they will offer me and then I will take a visit."
"I also took a visit to Washington State," Finkenberg said. "It was really nice up there."
"It was a good experience ," Finkenberg said. "The coaches were really nice and I think they are going to turn things around."
"I was there for the Apple Cup and that was exciting," Finkenberg said. "We were able to run onto filed with the team."
Other schools that are also taking notice of Finkenberg are Tennessee, Oregon State, and Boise State. He is still open to hearing from other schools.
Finkenberg earned first-team all-league, first-team all-county and first-team all-CIF for his senior season performance.
