Riley Sorenson is a massive offensive tackle at Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita who has the skill and size to be a top prospect in the 2013 class. His list of schools is already proving that to be true.
Vanderbilt is showing the most interest in Sorenson, a 6-foot-5, 320-pound prospect who already has an offer from SMU. He said Oregon, Nebraska, Michigan, Stanford, USC, UCLA, Arizona and Boston College are also routinely sending mail. More schools are coming in all the time.
Since he's only a few games into his junior season - and mainly focused on his team - Sorenson isn't doing much with recruiting right now. He doesn't feel rushed in any way so he's letting things play out and then will focus on picking a college later on. It could be a while until Sorenson even names some top schools.
"I don't really have favorites right now," Sorenson said Friday night after Santa Margarita defeated Los Alamitos, Calif. "I'm keeping my options open. I'm not worried about it at the moment. It's not really that hard to focus on other things."
Exposure is definitely not a problem for Sorenson, who shined at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp last spring and is getting looks from college who are stopping by Santa Margarita to look at other prospects as well.
USC commit Max Tuerk, a four-star offensive tackle, is the team's star and fellow 2013 offensive lineman Eric Bunte is also hearing from various schools in the Pac-12.
With college teams stopping by all the time, Sorenson said it's great to have those opportunities because more schools will be looking at him.
For now, though, his focus is on playing well this season, winning more games and helping keep pace on an offensive line that is filled with outstanding players.
"It's great playing with those guys," Sorenson said.
"Having guys if we turn it on we're as good as anybody. (Tuerk) has a lot of input and I try to sometimes do things like him. I look at him and I try to improve myself by watching him."
