Sacramento (Calif.) Sheldon defensive end Nate Iese (6-4, 240), has five offers, but several schools came by during the spring, and more offers could be in store for him.

"I have offers from Washington State, Arizona State, Idaho, San Jose State and Nevada," said Iese.

Then there are the schools he's hearing from.

"Washington, USC, UCLA, Fresno State, Arizona, Iowa, Montana, Sacramento State and San Diego State are some of them," said Iese.

A defensive end, Iese will also start at tight end this season, after backing up Mansel Simmons, who signed with Washington State, a year ago.

"Everyone is recruiting me as a defensive end, because I didn't play tight end so defensive end is what I'm used to, but we'll see what this season shows," said Iese.

Iese plans to camp at USC's Rising Stars Camp and will attend Nevada's Senior Day. He has no immediate plans to commit anywhere.

"I want to go through the process some," said Iese. "You never know, I could commit and it might not be what I thought it would. So I want to take my time. But all the schools are pretty even."

Iese, though, said he's likely to stay in the West.

"I'm a momma's boy, so I want to stay close so I can see my family on a regular basis," said Iese.

Academically, Iese said he's all squared away.

"We're working right now to be done with the Clearinghouse," said Iese.

Last fall, Iese was named Second Team All-League after recording 50 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Brandon is in his seventh year with, currently as the National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
