Aka is also receiving interest from a number of other schools as well. When asked if he would likely play defensive end at the college level Aka responded, "Most likely. [The] only schools that want me at tight end is Michigan, Cincinnati, and Northern Illinois."
A lot of interest has been coming from the Twin Cities to possibly turn Aka into a future Gopher. "I'm getting recruited pretty hard from them," said Aka of Minnesota. He went on to add that, "I talk weekly with Coach [Jeff] Phelps. He came to my school back in January. We've been talking ever since."
Aka believes that this could lead to a scholarship offer from Minnesota. "He (Coach Phelps) said he wants me to come to camp so I think that's when they are going to offer. He said they [are] only taking one guy at my position so they're going to be a bit picky," said Aka of the potential offer.
What is Aka looking for in a college? "Academics!" he said. Aka added, "I want to be a nuclear engineer." Aka's combination of size, athleticism and intelligence could make him a hot prospect this cycle.
