Concord (Calif.) De La Salle linebacker Victor Egu has watched his stock rise as of late.

"I've been blowing up," he says. "Coaches have been coming by my school and I've gotten more offers.

"A lot of colleges have come by my school. This past week, I saw USC, Northern Arizona and Cal Poly, and the previous week I saw Fresno State, Oregon, Washington, California and some other schools have come by also."

In this month alone, Egu has racked up offers from Arizona, Army, Nebraska, Nevada, Northwestern, Notre Dame and Washington State.

He holds 14 total scholarship offers, with the other seven coming from Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Oregon, San Jose State, Washington and Yale.

"I haven't narrowed my list down as of now," Egu says. "I'm not at that point yet."

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete plans to take a few trips this summer.

"I will probably take a visit to Washington, Notre Dame, USC and UCLA this summer," he tells

"I chose those schools because I will probably visit my brother at Washington, Notre Dame, because I got an offer from them and I want to see what the school is like since I've never been there, and USC and UCLA is only a six or seven hour drive, so they're pretty close."

What advice is older brother, Husky safety Ken Egu passing along?

"He's just telling me to go wherever is best for me," Victor explains. "He doesn't care where I go as long as it's somewhere I can play and get a good education, but he told me Washington is a great place. It rains, but he says you get used to it and he says the school is definitely a place where you can get work done and the football coaches are really supportive."

There are several factors that Egu's ideal school must possess.

"The school has to have a coaching staff that can develop me as a football player, a good education program and supportive fans," he describes. "I have to like the environment of the school and the coaching staff has to be versatile and supportive."
