Dannewitz recently scheduled visits to both Oregon and Louisville and, in addition to the Ducks and Cardinals, he seems to be a priority offensive line prospect for several of the top mid-major programs out west. What are some of the schools at the top of Dannewitz' list?
"Louisville is, and these aren't in order, but Colorado, Oregon, San Diego (State) and Fresno State," Dannewitz said. "I'm not too familiar with Louisville but I hope to get a lot of information when I go down there for my visit."
Dannewitz was scheduled to visit Oregon this weekend. "I'm just going to take that one in September during the season, but then after that I've still got to set up the other officials," he said.
The 6-6, 280 pound three-star offensive line prospect will have some time in between his visits to Oregon and Louisville.
"I'm going to visit Louisville December 15," Dannewitz said. "I talked about it with my high school coach and I called coach (Brent) Myers and set that one up. I understand they have a great football program and to go along with that the academics – it's a really good school too. I just need to go down there and see how it all is."
Where does Louisville stand on Dannewitz' list?
"Louisville is one of my top teams," Dannewitz said. "I just need to go down there and visit because I haven't been there before and I need to see how it is down there. My offensive line coach is good friends with some of their coaches down there so I had a connection with (Louisville) through them."
Most of the schools still on Dannewitz' list are located on the west coast. That being case, distance doesn't sound like it will be a major factor in Dannewitz' decision.
"Distance doesn't really matter to me. It doesn't matter how far it is," he said.
So what factors will help Dannewitz make his decision?
"I'm just trying to find the best school out there for me right now," Dannewitz said. "I'm hoping to find a program where I can come in and redshirt and get bigger and stronger my first year and just adapt to the college football."
