Stanley nowhere near decision

1080617
LOS ANGELES - Ronnie Stanley is up to 12 offers and took an unofficial visit to USC on Saturday prior to the Los Angeles NIKE Camp but the Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman offensive tackle said he's not even close to making a decision.
Still, seeing the Trojans in action was valuable especially since they've already offered him a scholarship.
"I just visited USC (Saturday) and I watched them practice," Stanley said. "I saw a lot of high tempo, a lot of competition going on which I like.
"The coaching staff is very eccentric. They have a lot of high energy and they were running all over the place yelling at everyone so you could feel the energy everywhere during their practices."
Oregon State and Missouri are the two newest offers for Stanley, a 6-foot-7, 285-pound prospect who said he doesn't plan to begin trimming his list until the start of his senior season.
Waiting is no problem for Stanley because he wants to take a lot more visits and make the most-informed decision possible. So many programs are involved that Stanley wants to take a slow approach to the recruiting process.
"Everyone is still on a straight line for right now," Stanley said. "I don't have any favorites right now.
"I'm going to take more unofficial visits. I probably won't start narrowing down until the start of next season. It's going to be a long process. I'm very OK with it. I want to take the time to make the right decision."
Stanley, one of the top offensive linemen at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp, has already taken unofficial visits to USC and Arizona.
He hopes to see Auburn, Alabama, Arkansas, Nebraska, Oregon and UCLA over the next few months.
