The Kingsburg (Calif.) lineman, Ryan Steele, has his first offer and more schools are taking a closer look...

Kingsburg (Calif.) two-way lineman Ryan Steele (6-2, 290), recently got his first offer and as the evaluation period gets closer, Steele is confident things will be picking up.

Nevada offered me as a defensive lineman,” said Steele. “I was really excited about it. I mean, just a chance to get to play football in college, that has always been one of my goals.”

Steele, who plays on both sides of the ball, said he wasn’t surprised that the offer came for the defensive line.

“I was kind of expecting it to be on defense because I thought I was more dominant there on defense this season,” said Steele.

In fact, he thinks that most schools want him as a defensive tackle.

“I’m pretty sure all of them are recruiting me as a defensive lineman, like Nevada is,” said Steele.

Steele said a number of Western schools have been showing interest.

Oregon State, Utah State, UCLA and Boise State all like me as a defensive lineman,” said Steele. “Utah State could be close too.”

But Steele said he’s fine with playing on either side of the ball.

“Honestly, I don’t care, I just want to play college ball so if that’s as a guard or center or defensive tackle, I’m good with it,” said Steele.

Steele said he’s planning on hitting a number of camps and some of the schools he likes.

“I’m planning on going to most of the top college camps and the Nike Camp in Oakland and then I’m planning on this summer, checking out some schools and going on some visits,” said Steele.

Academically, Steele has a 2.8 and took the SAT last weekend.

Brandon is in his eighth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
