Cal Offer Could Change Danser's Plans

San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep OT Kevin Danser picked up his third Pac-10 offer last month from Stanford. Arizona and Washington are his other offers; all three top his list. However, if California came around late in the process, he says it could change this plans. Regardless, Danser is still focused on the season; the Bells are in contention for the state title game…

Kevin Danser (6-5, 290) is the 60th ranked offensive tackle in the nation according to He had a great spring including earning MVP honors at the Stanford Nike Camp, which has transitioned into a solid senior campaign. He currently holds three offers while helping lead Bellarmine Prep to a 12-1 record.

"It's been a special season," said Danser. "We just got to get the bid to the [state title] bowl game."

Sacramento-Grant and Concord-De La Salle are also in contention for the bid in either the Open Division or Division I bowl games. If the Bells earn the bid, they will play on December 19 or 20, extending Danser's season two extra weeks. He has yet to take an official visit, and with none scheduled, he will be hard-pressed to take all five of his visits if he does not take one this month.

"Arizona has talked about setting up a visit," said Danser. "They are recruiting me the hardest. They want me at tackle. Some schools could move me to guard. It doesn't really matter [what position I play], football is football."

Danser states he has no favorites, but he plans to decide in January after taking a few visits. He says his decision will likely come down to the Wildcats, Stanford, or Washington. However, if California ever came around to offering, it could change the picture.

"I'm not really sure on the Bear's [interest]," says Danser. "I haven't talked to them in awhile. I got an email about a month ago. I'd like to get [an offer from Cal]. I'd have to say [a Cal offer] would change things."

For now, Danser will focus on the parts of his recruitment he can control.

"It was exciting to see," Danser said of receiving his latest offer from Stanford. "It's an up and coming program. I am in the final stages of the admissions process."

Danser reports a 3.7 GPA. He scored a 1600 on the SAT, and a 26 on the ACT. He is not planning to retake either test.
