JUCO OT Looking at Official Visits

After spending two season at California, offensive tackle Charles Siddoway moved to Butte College in Oroville, Calif. His season ended Saturday, and he is now looking at making official visits, and Scout.com has the goods on which schools are in the mix.

After playing scholastically in Oregon and beginning a college career in California, offensive tackle Charles Siddoway appears ready to leave the west coast when his time at Butte College (Oroville, Calif.) is done.

At least, that is how his recruiting is shaping up.

"Right now, besides Rutgers, it's the University of Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Mississippi State," Butte coach Jeff Jordan said. "I know he also has offers from Texas Tech, Iowa State and San Diego State, but he hasn't mentioned taking a trip to those places."

Siddoway, who attended California out of Sheldon High (Eugene, Oregon), is scheduling a visit to Rutgers in early December. Trips to Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Mississippi State are also in the making, and he may have to do it quickly.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pound Siddoway, who played four games as a red-shirt freshman at Cal, plans to graduate from Butte in December and enroll at a school in January, providing his transcripts are in order and enough of his credits transfer to a four-year school.

"He's an unbelievable athlete," Jordan said. "He can really run. I thought he played pretty physical this past Saturday against Modesto in our bowl game."

Butte finished a 10-1 season with a 48-25 win against Modesto (Calif.) Junior College in Saturday's Graffitti Bowl, and Siddoway's blocking skills were a big reason why.

"He played left tackle for us, and that is where I would see him playing," Jones said. "He runs darn near well enough to be a tight end. I think his best asset is his ability to run, and he's really big, tall and long, but he's not stiff at all.

"I think, wherever he winds up going, if he can have a good year-and-a-half, I think he could potentially be an NFL prospect, if he wants it."

Siddoway has two years to play two seasons at a four-year school.
