Atwater (Calif.) Buhach Colony defensive tackle Aziz Shittu (6-3, 275) is now up to ten offers and as his film is making the rounds, there could even be more joining the mix.

"I have offers now from UCLA, Stanford, Washington, Washington State, San Jose State, Iowa State, Boise State, Nevada, Oregon State and Colorado," said Shittu. "And I think will be coming when they get a hold of my film."

Shittu said that Stanford and UCLA were standing out to him and he plans to see those schools in the weeks ahead.

"I'm going to Stanford for their Junior Day on the 26th of February and then I'm going to UCLA for their Spring Game in April," said Shittu. "And I'm trying to get up to Washington too at some point if I can make it work. But those are the only two I got now."

Shittu said he's not sure when he'll commit, but is open to making an early decision.

"If I go see a school, and it feels right, there is no need to wait," said Shittu. "I'm about 60-40 on making an early decision."

He's also not completely set on staying on the West Coast, although he admits that is where he prefers.

"If I see something out there, I'll have no problem leaving the West Coast," said Shittu. "But I admit, that's where I prefer to play."

Academically, he has a 3.8 and will take the SAT in March.

As a junior, he had 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
