Mission Viejo (Calif.) offensive lineman Colby Cyburt (6-5, 265), has hit double-digit offers, and he's fresh off an unofficial visit to Boulder over the weekend, to see Colorado.

"I really liked it, the campus was awesome," said Cyburt. "I spent a lot of time with Coach Steve Marshall, the offensive line coach and he showed us around and we met all the coaches."

The Buffs were the first ones to offer Cyburt.

"That makes a different a little bit because they offered me way before anyone else," said Cyburt. "I really liked the school. The stadium was awesome, the campus and the facilities are really nice. We met with Coach (Jon) Embree for about 30-45 minutes and we talked about a bunch of things, like what it would be like to go to Colorado."

Cyburt got an offer from UCLA in May, and he's planning to take in an unofficial to Westwood.

"We've talked a bit with the coaches and we'll be going on a visit up to UCLA soon," said Cyburt.

Cyburt has previously been to Stanford and USC and he's hopeful he can make it up to Oregon.

"With Oregon, it depends on the schedule, but that's a possibility for another visit," said Cyburt. "Hopefully they're next to offer me. I've been talking to them and they seem really interested."

Next weekend, Cyburt will camp at USC, a school he's hoping offers soons as well.

"They told me that with their limited scholarships, they really need me to come to their camp so I think if I do well there, I think I'll get an offer," said Cyburt.

Cyburt said each school is recruiting him as an offensive tackle, primarily left tackle.

He's also hopeful he'll have a decision made prior to the start of his season.

"I want to wait until, at the earliest, late August, but right now I have too many options," said Cyburt.

Academically, Cyburt has a 3.8 overall GPA and took the SAT on Saturday.
