3-star OL Matthew Cindric Will Visit UCLA in April

Apr. 1 -- Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline offensive lineman Matthew Cindric has a plan to visit UCLA in the spring...

Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline offensive lineman Matthew Cindric is one of the more versatile linemen in the West in this class.

Cindric is being recruited for both sides of the ball.

"I'm being recruited as a strongside defensive end, playing a 4i or as an offensive tackle or guard," said the 6-4, 265-pounder.

Cindric has 11 offers in all and a few other schools are keeping a close eye on him, with plans to see him during the spring evaluation period.

"I have 11 offers, from Washington State, Montana State, NevadaHawaiiOregon StateCaliforniaUtahUCLAFresno State, Yale and Princeton," said Cindric.  "No schools are really standing out more than others right now, but as I get to visit and check more schools out, I will be able to narrow down the schools I'm really interested in.

Cindric has hit up a couple of Pac-12 schools already with plans to visit more in the coming months.

"I visited Washington State last July and I went to the Oregon State and Washington Junior Days," said Cindric.  "I plan on going to UCLA and USC in April and to Cal in May.  I am hoping to go see some others, but not sure yet I will be able to."

Cindric has consistent conversations with a number of schools.

"I have talked with Coach (Steve) Greatwood and Coach (Justin) Wilcox at Cal, Coach (Justin) Ena at Utah, Coach Chad (Kauha'aha'a) at Oregon State, Coach (Hank) Fraley and Coach Scott (White) at UCLA, Coach (Eric) Mele and Coach (Clay) McGuire at Washington State, Coach (Sean) Duggan at Hawaii, Coach (Mason) Miller and Coach (Dave) White at Nevada, Coach (Kirby) Moore and Coach (Ryan) Grubb at Fresno State, Coach (Mike) Willis at Princeton and Coach (Paul) Rice at Yale," said Cindric.  "Those are the main ones from each."

Washington was the school that Cindric watched growing up but he's only had minimal contact with them.

"The new offensive line coach at Washington, Coach (Scott) Huff, texted me, introducing himself, but that's pretty much it," said Cindric.  "I grew up a Husky fan just living in Seattle."

Cindric plans to camp at The Opening Oakland and some other camps.

He's not in any rush to make a decision.

"I don't have a top five yet," said Cindric.  "I want to go and visit some more schools before I narrow anything down."
