Bryan Addison visited Boulder and Fort Collins on Friday to check out the Buffaloes and Rams. The versatile blue-chip prospect from Gardena (Calif.) Serra then helped his 7-on-7 squad to a tournament victory at Aurora Central High School on Saturday.
"Our whole team went up to see Colorado and Colorado State. Both of those schools are recruiting me hard now," he said. "Colorado State offered and it sounds like Colorado is in the process of offering."
Addison said he plans to make a return trip to Boulder at some point in the future.
"It was beautiful at Colorado. It is great scenery up there, the facilities are fantastic and the coaching staff is cool, too," he said. "Colorado State had a great atmosphere, too. The campus is nice."
Back in mid-April, Addison announced Nebraska, UCLA, Oregon and Arizona State as the front runners for his signature. He was originally planning to verbally commit on April 24 before deciding to take more time with the process.
"My list of top schools is the same right now, until Colorado offers," he said Monday.
Addison has said the possibility for early playing time will be one of the main factors in his college decision.
An invitee to The Opening Finals and the All-Polynesian Bowl, Addison is currently ranked by Scout.com among the nation's top 100 prospects from the Class of 2018. He will likely play safety at the next level, but some programs have also talked to him about the possibility of playing on offense.
"Whatever will get me on the field the fastest," Addison said when asked if there is a position he would prefer to play in college.
A 6-foot-4, 180-pounder, Addison considers his length to be his best attribute between the lines. Scout.com recruiting analyst Greg Biggins agrees.
"Addison is a tall, rangy safety who covers a ton of ground," he recently wrote. "He has great ball skills and is extremely fluid. The game just looks easy for him and he has been as impressive as any defensive back we've seen this off-season."
