Ronnie Stanley has set up two official visits and more are expected but the Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman offensive tackle isn't sure where those other trips will be just yet.
The 6-foot-7, 285-pound four-star prospect who shined against Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral this past weekend said he's going to visit Arkansas for its game against Auburn on Oct. 8 and head to Notre Dame when it hosts USC on Oct. 22.
More visits are expected to happen but Stanley, rated No. 17 at offensive tackle, No. 149 in the 2012 class and No. 1 in the Nevada state rankings by Rivals.com, said he hasn't had time to figure out the rest of his schedule.

"Those are two schools I really wanted to see," Stanley said. "I've heard really good things about both places so I just really want to see them."
Stanley said Notre Dame reminds him of his high school and that taking a visit is important there because people rave about the campus and the program's tradition.
"It's sort of like the college of my high school," Stanley said.
"I really need to check them out and I've heard a lot of good things about the school. I heard when you take a visit there it changes your mind about the whole place so I just have to see it."
Arkansas was one of the first programs to seriously recruit Stanley hard and since he's talked with the coaching staff so often he's decided to take a trip to Fayetteville to check it out. Playing in the SEC is also a draw for the Bishop Gorman standout
"They were one of the first schools recruiting me and they've been recruiting me very hard," Stanley said.
"A lot of coaches have given me a lot of pitches and I've really bought into them so I need to see if it's really true."
Stanley has started to narrow his list and has Arizona, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt and Washington as some of his top schools.
