Averill Plans to Camp at UCLA

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite lineman Travis Averill has an offer from UCLA and will be at the Bruins Lineman Camp on Saturday...

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite tackle Travis Averill (6-4, 280) is up to seven offers, with three Pac-12 schools and a Big 12 school the latest to offer.

"I have seven offers now," said Averill. "Arizona, Washington, Iowa State and Washington State all offered during the spring, and I already had the UCLA, Boise State and Colorado offers."

And Averill thinks two more Pac-12 schools could add to that list.

"Cal and Oregon State I think could be close to offering me," said Averill. "We'll see though."

Averill, who plays left tackle for the Friars, said the attention is coming inside.

"Schools have said they're looking at me mostly as a guard or center," said Averill.

Averill visited Boise State, Colorado and UCLA for each of their spring games, and said he'd like to visit some of the newer schools.

"I want to make my decision before the season starts, so I'd like to go out and see some of the schools that have offered recently," said Averill.

Averill said he's got no favorite and no school has emerged as the heaviest recruiter.

"They're all coming at me pretty good and all recruiting me about the same," said Averill. "I'm wide open. But I think I'll be cutting it down pretty soon in the next month or two."

Averill has camped at the Los Angeles Nike Camp and the NUC Combine, where he earned OL MVP honors. He'll be camping at UCLA's Linemen Camp later this month.

Academically, Averill has a 3.1 and took the SAT last Saturday.

Last fall as a junior, Averill was a Second Team All-State Underclass pick, when he helped the Friars to the CIF-SS Pac-5 title and a berth in the CIF State Open Division Title Game and as a sophomore was named First Team All-SuperSoph, when the Friars won the CIF-SS Pac-5 title and the CIF State Division II championship.
