Pike High School (Indiana) defensive end Pierre Aka might still be waiting for his first BCS offer, but it hasn't stopped the junior from picking up a lot from Midwest schools.

"I got offer No. 8 today," said Aka in a message to Scout.com. "Akron offered me."

The Zips join schools like Arkansas State, Ball State, Bowling Green, Miami (OH), Northern Illinois, Toledo, and Western Michigan to extend offers.

The junior also has plenty of attention from schools in the Big Ten and Big East.

So what is Aka looking for in a school?

"Academics," he stated to GoldenSports.net. "I want to be a nuclear engineer."
