Dannewitz To Visit CU In December

Three-star offensive tackle prospect Ryan Dannewitz verbally committed to Colorado at the end of October. That was before he took an official recruiting visit to CU. When he makes that trip next month, though, it won't be the first time he's been to Boulder.

Ryan Dannewitz, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound offensive tackle from San Jacinto, Calif., will make his official visit to Colorado the weekend of Dec. 8. That is, unless his San Jacinto team is playing in the state championship game that day. (If that ends up being the case, Dannewitz said he will visit later in December).

When Dannewitz makes his official visit to CU, it won't be the first time he's been in Boulder. He attended the team's Junior Day in the spring and the CU football camp in Boulder over the summer.

Dannewitz had a busy spring and summer as he was also on campus for camps and unofficial look-sees at Arizona State, Fresno State and Notre Dame. His official scholarship offer list included Arizona, ASU, Fresno State, Louisville, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Oregon, San Diego State and Washington.

"I know the program's stepping up and the football team is getting better," Dannewitz told BSN about why he committed to CU. "It's a great school and campus. I know the coaches are going to bring it back up. I have a great relationship with the coaches, and I just felt like it was the right place."

Dannewitz was especially impressed with Colorado offensive line coach Jeff Grimes.

"When I was at the camp, he coached me really well, taught me a lot of stuff," Dannewitz said. "I got along with him well. He taught me some stuff I use now."

Dannewitz's San Jacinto team is currently 7-2. They play Notre Dame this weekend, a team that features Oregon commit Kenjon Barner, in their final regular-season game.
