Anaheim (Calif.) Servite linebacker Butch Pauu (5-11, 216) is at a half-dozen offers, with plans to camp at a few schools this summer, in hopes to add more offers to the mix.

"I have six offers, from BYU, Washington, Iowa State, Nebraska, Colorado and Oregon State," said Pauu. "Utah, UCLA and USC are all recruiting me too and I'll be at the Stanford and UCLA camps and we'll see how that goes."

Pauu said while most of his recruitment is even, he does have a slight leader.

"Right now I don't have a leader, all the schools are even," said Pauu. "But BYU would be at the top. I'm going out there next week with my teammate Jherremya Leuta-Douyere, and we're hoping to get him an offer."

Pauu said numerous schools came by the Servite campus during the spring.

"We had coaches from Vanderbilt, Oregon State, Penn, San Diego State, Cal, Stanford, San Jose State, USC, Washington, Nebraska, Iowa State and UCLA and some other schools," said Pauu.

Pauu said he's still not ready to make a decision for any school.

"I definitely still want to take some time, and I want to see what all the other schools have to offer, see the background of the schools," said Pauu. "I want to take all five official visits. That's my plan right now."

Pauu said he's got a timeframe for when he wants to serve his LDS mission.

"I'm turning 19 during the season and that's when we turn in our papers, so I'll be at school for a semester, get a full season in, then leave," said Pauu.

Aside from the UCLA and Stanford camps, Pauu is playing with Team AIGA in this week's BMOC Tournament in Carson.

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.
