Ronnie Stanley played in the Fullcourt Press Easter Classic this past weekend and his AAU basketball team is headed to the Real Deal in the Rock in Little Rock, Ark., next weekend and that will give Stanley a chance to take an unofficial visit to Arkansas.
The Razorbacks have been recruiting Stanley, a 6-foot-7, 285-pound offensive tackle from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, who said he's open to playing in the SEC and pretty much every other major conference since he's still looking at all schools.
"I'm going to Arkansas next weekend and it's for a basketball tournament but I'm going to take an unofficial visit while I'm there," Stanley said on Sunday before his team won the Easter Classic championship. "I've been talking to them.
"I'm not sure yet about other visits. I'm trying to visit Alabama and Auburn as well as some schools on the West Coast."
As for other upcoming visits, Stanley said he'd like to see the Crimson Tide and the Tigers and also get to Oregon, Washington, Cal and UCLA.
Stanley, one of the top offensive tackles at the recent Los Angeles NIKE Camp, said he's open to all possibilities in his recruitment.
"The SEC is a possibility," Stanley said. "Anywhere is a possibility for me right now. It's still really early for me."
So far, Arizona, Arkansas, Cal, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Utah and Washington have offered Stanley, who took an unofficial visit to see the Trojans the day before the NIKE camp.
The Bishop Gorman standout said he doesn't want to start trimming down his list until the start of his senior season.
For now, he's focused on playing AAU basketball and hearing from more schools in his football recruitment. It is definitely a busy time for Stanley, who is nowhere near making his decision.
"I do get tired sometimes," Stanley said. "It's a lot of work. It's just a lot of going between football and basketball. I'm used to it. I've been doing it for a long time.
"I've always played. I played basketball my whole life."
