Finkenberg exploring his options

This past weekend marked just the second official visit for Evan Finkenberg. Nonetheless, what started out as a slow recruiting process for the Las Flores (Calif.) Tesoro HS offensive tackle, may end up with two more visits this month. Following his visit to Tempe, Devils Digest caught up with Finkenberg to get his impressions of the trip.

A day before his visit to Arizona State, the 6-5 255 Evan Finkenberg was officially offered a scholarship by the Sun Devils, and that seem to set up the tone for an enjoyable weekend.

"I liked the coaching staff," Finkenberg said. "They have a lot of experience at the next level and that's important. That's the ultimate for every player – to play in the NFL. I liked coach Smith a lot. He has coached a lot of good left tackles and he said I have the athleticism to play that position. Obviously I'll need to add some weight to my frame.

"It liked the facilities, the equipment was all top of the line and brand new. I liked that a lot."

Finkenberg was hosted by defensive lineman Toa Tuitea.

The Tesoro offensive tackle visited Washington State back in November, and stated that the Cougars are "still in the picture and I talk to them once in a while."

His next visit will be to Colorado this coming weekend, and if does take a visit on January 30th, it will likely be Tennessee or Oregon State.

Tesoro finished the year at 13-1 and their lone defeat was in the CIF-SS Pac-5 championship game. Finkenberg earned first team all-league and first team all-Orange County honors following his senior campaign.
