Gardena (Calif.) Serra athlete Kache Palacio (6-0.5, 211), has been a terror on the camp circuit this spring and early summer, but the elusive first offer still hasn't made its way to him.

"I don't have any offers yet, but I'm looking forward to getting some," said Palacio.

Where Palacio will play in college, position-wise, is still up to debate, but he's done a good job showing he can play a few spots.

"I'm not too sure where I'll play in college," said Palacio. "When I read my reports, they say I'm quite undersized, but I have speed. I'm versatile so I can move to linebacker but I can also play with my hand down and rush the quatrterback."

And Palacio said he'll do whatever is asked of him at the next level.

"I mean, wherever the college coach wants me, that's where I'll play," said Palacio. "I'm not going to be picky."

Palacio said a handful of schools are showing serious interest in him.

"I'm most interested in UCLA, Arizona State and SMU," said Palacio. "I want to go through the whole process before I decide. But those are the schools I'm liking."

Palacio has camped at UCLA and at Rising Stars at USC in the last two weeks, plus the B2G Elite Skills Camp and the BMOC 7on7 Tournament.

"I played linebacker at the 7on7 and then defensive line at the other camps," said Palacio. "Defensive end is what I'll go with right now, because that is what I know, but I'm open to anything."
