Van Dyke setting official trips

Hqf3ye5oiv2mp2qx1agl
Alex Van Dyke has a bevy of offers but the Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks wide receiver is starting to narrow his list and five Pac-12 schools stand out at this point.
"He is starting to formulate some favorites," Cosumnes Oaks coach Ryan Gomes said. "He is starting to narrow down the choices.
"He and I have talked about official visits. Tentatively, he's got four that are at the top of his list. That would be Oregon, Cal, UCLA and Oregon State. Those are where he's considering visiting at this point."
The fifth official visit slot is staying open because USC has expressed a lot of interest this summer, especially after Van Dyke worked out at the Rising Stars Camp, and an offer could be coming early in his senior season.
Gomes said Van Dyke, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound three-star recruit, wowed USC assistant coaches Tee Martin and Clay Helton during the camp but that coach Lane Kiffin has the final say on an offer and wants to see some senior game film.
What's maybe most impressive is that Van Dyke impressed the USC coaches at camp shortly after an automobile accident. The Cosumnes Oaks standout went to camp, performed well and is definitely on the Trojans' radar.
"If USC does in fact offer that would be his fifth official visit most likely," Gomes said. "They loved him at the Rising Stars Camp.
"He was just coming off a car accident. He was stiff. His back was pretty sore but he still went down and did the camp and worked with Tee Martin. I was down at the camp and worked it as well and we spent a lot of time with Tee and Clay Helton and they love him. They really love him. They talked about his catch radius being the best they've ever seen in terms of what he can get to.
"They want to see more burst out of his cuts and more refined routes. That's what he needs to work on. As a three-sport guy he hasn't had the time to do those things. Kiffin is going to give the final approval but Tee and Clay are both sold. Lane wants to see a couple game films in the fall."
