Carson York Profile

York favors Oregon and Stanford slightly over Arizona State, Oregon State and Washington State. "I can't really name a number one," York said. "There's not much between any of them right now.

"I love the coaching staff at Oregon and their stability," York said. "They've been there for over 10 years and I think they'll be there for a while. They are proven winners. I also love the facilities and the whole environment there."

Despite living in Idaho, York says that Washington State is the local favorite. The Cougars were the first to offer York in February. "Pullman is only about one and a half hours away so everyone here loves them," York said. "They have a great O-line and I like the coaches a lot.

"Stanford is Stanford," York said. "They offer a world-class education and it would be a great opportunity to go there for free and play some big-time Pac-10 football.

"I think the coaching staff will be important," York said. "I'll also be just looking for that gut feeling. I like coaches that have an open door policy and are players coaches. I wouldn't have a problem committing early. If I feel really comfortable I'll do it. I won't just take official visits for fun if I'm not serious about the school."

York benches 350. "I think I've got a pretty good foot movement," York said. "I'm a team player and play hard. I'm physical and I feel like we're the heart and soul of the offense. I'd like to get stronger and faster. I need to stay lower coming over the ball and improve my drive blocking."

He reports a 3.9 GPA and a 1830 SAT.
