San Ramon (Calif.) Dougherty Valley offensive lineman Kieffer Longson (6-7, 305), made the trek recently down to Southern California, visiting the three FBS programs in the Southland.

"I went to USC, UCLA and San Diego State," said Longson. "It was a great experience for me."

Longson raved about the trip to the two Los Angeles schools.

UCLA: "I met with Coach (Adriam) Klemm, the offensive line coach, Coach Angus (McClure) the defensive line coach and the head coach, Coach (Jim) Mora. They were great too. They want to see my SAT too because it's a good academic school. UCLA is a super nice campus with nice weather and facilities and everything."

USC: "USC was awesome. I went to one of their spring practices. Coach (Tim) Drevno spent a lot of time with me and he's awesome and a great guy. They just want me to come to their camps and see my SAT score. And if I do well on both, they'll offer. The campus was pretty nice and they had a great practice the one I went to. I enjoyed talking with Coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian)."

Longson next plans to visit Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona, Arizona State and Washington.

Holding offers from Ohio State, Florida State, Utah, Utah State, Missouri, Arizona State, San Diego State and Colorado, Longson plans to camp with a number of schools to add more to the mix.

"This summer, I'm planning to camp at Cal, USC, UCLA, BYU, Oregon, Notre Dame and Ohio State," said Longson.

Longson is LDS and said his plan is still to serve his mission right after he graduates next summer, putting him on a college campus in the fall of 2017.

BYU is a school he grew up watching and the Cougars gave him an idea of their plans for an offer.

"BYU said they want to see me at their camp and they want to see my SAT too," said Longson.

Longson plans to also camp at the Oakland NFTC next month in addition to the college camps he'll be at.

As for a decision, he doesn't see one happening anytime soon.

"I don't have a favorite right now, so I'm still pretty open," said Longson. "I'd like to make my decision before football season, but if it's too hard, I'll wait it out."
