No New Offers

Kevin Danser says that the school that is recruiting him the hardest is Arizona. "They call regularly," Danser said. "I hear from (defensive end) coach Jeff Hammerschmidt and (offensive line) coach Bill Bedenbaugh. They said they really want me and said they see me helping their success. They are doing pretty good right now and hopefully they can keep the momentum..."

Kevin Danser, the 6-foot-5, 290-pound three-star offensive lineman from Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose, Calif., still only has scholarship offers from Washington and Arizona and says he's not even focused on recruiting right now.

"I'm just focused on helping my team win," Danser said.

Danser, Scout.com's No. 59 offensive tackle, still denies a leader but favors Washington, Arizona, UCLA, California and Colorado.

"I went to Washington during the summer and really liked it," Danser said. "I like the environment it's in. It's very green with a lot of trees. It's a calming place and I like that."

Danser also likes Huskies head coach Tyrone Willingham. "Coach Willingham is a family guy and is very humble," he said. "He's working hard to get them on the right path and besides USC, the Pac-10 is pretty open so anything can still happen."

He says that the school that is recruiting him the hardest is Arizona. "They call regularly," Danser said. "I hear from (defensive end) coach Jeff Hammerschmidt and (offensive line) coach Bill Bedenbaugh. They said they really want me and said they see me helping their success.

"They are doing pretty good right now and hopefully they can keep the momentum," he said. "I saw the UCLA game on TV and was really impressed with Arizona. They played well."

Danser remains definitely interested in UCLA and hopes the Bruins will come through with a ride. "They called me last week and asked for some senior tape," he said. "So we'll see what happens.

"I like (offensive line) coach Bob Palcic a lot," Danser said. "He seems like a great guy and is a really good coach too. He's the kind of coach that I could see myself playing for."

Earlier this year Danser attended the California/Michigan State game. "It was really cool being at that game," he said. "They played really well and ran the ball well. I loved the atmosphere there. The stadium was packed."

Danser has visited all of his favorites except Colorado. "They are very successful this year," he said. "They seem to have turned the corner towards winning and I really like that. Colorado looks to be a pretty solid team, but I haven't talked to them about a scholarship or anything yet."

Danser hasn't scheduled any official visits yet, but says both the Wildcats and Huskies have been trying to get him to their campus. "I'll probably set them up closer to the end of the season," he said. "Both Arizona and Washington are really trying to get me out there, but I just don't know when.

"I don't plan on making a decision until after the season," he said. "I'd like to take a few visits first."

Danser is an exceptional student with a 3.6 core GPA and a 1600 SAT and 26 ACT, and admits he's also considering the Ivy Leagues. "I visited Harvard, Yale and Brown this summer and I liked them a lot," he said. "My brother (Tim Danser who plays offensive line for Brown) goes to an Ivy League school and I'm thinking about it too."
