West Des Moines (Iowa) Dowling three-star tight end Jon Wisnieski has had a top group of teams for some time, but the 6-foot-5, 215-pound prospect is still very much open to new schools joining the race and is considering visiting two more this summer.
In-state schools Iowa and Iowa State along with Nebraska have been high on Wisnieski's radar since those teams offered earlier in the process.
"I've been talking to those schools more than anyone, just because of proximity obviously," Wisnieski said. "I've also talked recently with Oregon and Stanford. They visited the school a couple weeks ago and were wondering if I could get out there for a junior day deal. I think I might be able to do that in the next couple weeks."
Wisnieski's interest has been piqued by the recent attention from the two Pac-12 schools and plans are being discussed for getting out to Eugene and Palo Alto.
"I was just talking about it with my parents tonight and we are trying to get out to Oregon and head down to Stanford all in about five days around the 19th through 25th [of June]," Wisnieski said.
Oregon and Stanford have yet to come through with scholarship offers, but Wisnieski does hold seven BCS offers, including three from the group of schools that has stood out on his list for several weeks. He is looking to get trips in to those destinations this summer as well.
"I'm going out to Nebraska on the 16th for Big Red Day, which is basically a junior day," Wisnieski said. "I might get up to Iowa State once during the summer and maybe Iowa too, but I still have to plan that with them."
A decision is still some ways off, and Wisnieski plans to take at least a couple official visits before making his college selection. There is a team to beat heading into the summer, though.
"I'd probably say Iowa," Wisnieski said. "I talk to them a lot and got to know them pretty well. But I can't rule anything out at this point."
This off-season, Wisnieski has been focused on improving his speed and agility. He is not concerned with adding weight to his frame because he knows that will get done once he arrives on a college campus.
