Humphreys Getting Closer

The big defensive lineman from Oregon, Connor Humphreys, recently took more unofficial visits and says a college decision is coming soon...

Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic defensive end Connor Humphreys has scholarship offers from around the country, and after seeing many college campuses this summer, he told us that a college decision is coming soon.

He recently visited Arizona, and was on UCLA's campus a second time about a month ago.

Humphrey's would only tell us the five schools he's still considering.

"My final five are UCLA, Arizona State, Arizona, Wisconsin and Tennessee," Humphreys said.

Having never been to Arizona, and it being his most recent visit, he talked about the trip to Tucson.

"I enjoyed my time at Arizona," Humphreys said. "I had never been down there before, so it was really fun to see the school and talk with the coaches. They think I'm a good player and they let me know they would like me to come there. They think I can play their end position and that there is room to come in and play right away if I earn it."

A couple schools stand out above the rest, but Humphreys doesn't want to tip his hand, yet.

"I have a top two right now, but I'm not going to say who because I'm not completely sure right now," Humphreys said.

Still, the defensive end knows that it is getting close to when he would like to make a decision.

"The time is getting close for me to decide," he said. "I plan on announcing by the end of August. It will be nice to get the decision out of the way."
