Recruiting: Mark Sanchez Update

West Coast superstar <b>Mark Sanchez</b> recently tripped to Texas and will be visiting USC head coach <b>Pete Carroll</b> tomorrow. We caught up with Mark's father <b>Nick Sanchez</b>, who has accompanied his son on each and every excursion, to grab a few details regarding his latest visit to Austin.

"It was great trip," Nick Sanchez Sr. said. "It was very impressive. Speaking for Mark, I think it was everything he anticipated."

"He's had an opportunity to see Columbus (Ohio State), South Bend (Notre Dame), and Austin (Texas)," Sanchez explained. "And I'm not trying to pull your leg when I say this, but in all fairness, not one of them stood out above the others. The places we visited were incredible."

With rumors circulating that it is an Ohio State and Texas battle, Mr. Sanchez said, "Not at all. No disrespect intended, but I'm not an internet guy. I have heard that said by some people, but that's not true at all. Even some of Mark's friends told him they heard he was down to Ohio State and USC and he just laughed. Honestly, there isn't anybody that is a front-runner. They're all even right now."

With the Mission Viejo senior-to-be prepared to make a summer decision, his father said, "I would say within the next month; that would be pretty safe, I would guess."
