Anaheim (Calif.) Servite offensive lineman Travis Averill is hoping to make his college decision before the Friars' make their trek to a third straight CIF-SS Pac-5 title and third straight march to the CIF State Bowl Championship.

Averill, a two-time all-state selection for the Friars, has offers from Arizona, Washington, Iowa State, Washington State, UCLA, Boise State and Colorado, but a few schools are standing out.

"I have seven offers, but I like UCLA, Boise State and Colorado and Arizona too," said Averill. "I want to visit Arizona and some of the other schools like Washington and Washington State. And I've been talking to Cal a lot."

Arizona, where his former Servite teammate Kirifi Taula plays, is making a late push.

"Kirifi said it's nice up there and he's working on me," said Averill.

Averill has a rough ballpark of when he wants to decide.

"I want to decide by late July, maybe August, before the season starts," said Averill. "I think I'm ready to decide pretty soon."

Averill camped at UCLA earlier this month, the last camp he planned to do before turning his attention over to Servite.

"It was fun, there was a lot of competition, and guys getting after it," said Averill. "Isaac Seumalo was real good and Kache Palacio was too."

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.
