Orange (Calif.) Lutheran offensive guard Colin Sutton (6-5, 300), is one half of arguably the best guard tandem in the West in the 2013 class.

Playing opposite John Lopez, Sutton emerged as one of the best interior linemen in the region.

Colorado has already offered him and many more could get in on Sutton, especially as the spring evaluation period begins next month.

"There are a lot of schools that are really interested in me, it's just a blur but it's a fun process," said Sutton. "It's a blessing though. I'm really open to a lot of schools."

Sutton plans to visit Colorado during his spring break.

"Coach (Brian) Cabral offered me and I'm going to go out over spring break and talk with him and Coach (Jon) Embree and the other coaches," said Sutton. "Getting that offer was pretty exciting."

Sutton said that the Buffs offered him as an offensive linemen, not specifying which spot.

The versatile lineman attended USC's Junior Day and plans to visit UCLA during the spring.

"I went to USC for their Junior Day and was talking to some of the coaches there," said Sutton. "I missed UCLA's Junior Day but I'll tour them during their spring ball."

Sutton also plans to get down to the Tar Heel State during the summer.

"My grandparents live in North Carolina," said Sutton. "I'm planning on going to the summer camps at Duke and Wake Forest and then I may visit some of the Ivy League schools to while I'm out there."

Sutton said guard has been the position he's most familiar with, but is open to any position on the offensive line.

"Colorado offered me just as a general lineman and they said I could be a great tackle or be a great guard," said Sutton. "I've played guard mostly for OLu and with me and John, our high school team just pounds it in between the tackles."

Sutton said he doesn't have any set timetable for when he'd like to make a decision.

"Really, whenever it feels right, I'll make a decision," said Sutton.

Sutton said he plans to camp at the Los Angeles Nike Camp next month.
