Eifler Taking It Slow

Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O’Dowd linebacker Camilo Eifler (6-2.5, 210), is closing in on double-digit offers.

“I have nine offers right now from Michigan, Washington, Washington State, UCLA, Cal, Colorado, Northwestern, Duke and Oregon State,” said Eifler.

And Eifler feels that three more schools, with whom he’s talking to consistently, could be adding to that list.

“I’m talking a lot more with USC, Oregon and Notre Dame and I think they all could be possibly offering soon,” said Eifler.

Eifler is gearing up for a spring swing that will take him into the Midwest.

“In April, I’m going on a Midwest tour and visiting Northwestern and Michigan, and then we’re maybe going to go through Notre Dame if we have enough time,” said Eifler.

Eifler has visited Cal, where both his parents work, and UCLA, which he visited last month, and wants to get back down to Southern California.

“I’m probably going to USC soon because I haven’t been on that campus or visited the school yet,” said Eifler. “I’m also possibly going to their camp and Stanford’s camp.”

Eifler said that three Pac-12 schools are after him the most.

“Cal, Washington and UCLA are kind of recruiting me the hardest and they’re all constantly hitting me up, so they’re really high on me,’ said Eifler. “I’m getting a lot of love from those three.”

Eifler said all the attention is coming specifically as an outside linebacker.

“And that is good because that is what I want to play as well,” said Eifler.

Eifler still doesn’t anticipate making an early decision.

“I want to take the process really slow and take all of my visits,” said Eifler. “I want to see what happens after the season, with coaches leaving and moving on and if that affects my relationships.”

Eifler’s mom is a professor at Berkeley and his father is a librarian there, and while they’d love to have him on campus, he said they’re not pushing that.

“They just want me to be most comfortable wherever I’m at,” said Eifler. “They’re not pushing a decision on me. They just want what’s best for me academically and athletically.”

The four-star said he plans to be at the Nike The Opening Regional camp in Oakland in May.
