Covina (Calif.) South Hills offensive lineman Siaosi Aiono is one of the top linemen in the Southland in the class of 2011.

Aiono, 6-2.5, 292-pounds, was the OL MVP at last weekend's Nike Football Training Camp in Los Angeles.

With two offers already, Aiono is hoping to increase his offer list as the spring picks.

"I have two offers, one from BYU and one from San Jose State," said Aiono. "Letter wise- pretty much all of the Pac-10 is recruiting me."

Aiono, though, says the spring could really help him.

"A lot of coaches are getting my film right now and they're all going to be stopping by during the spring and checking me out. I went to USC and UCLA's Junior Days and I'll probably go to both of those lineman camps. I'm doing three more camps at least," said Aiono.

Aiono does have a top five.

"My top five right now is of course, BYU and San Jose State and then I like UCLA and I like SC and I like Washington," said Aiono.

Aiono is LDS and said he plans to serve his mission either before he enrolls, or after his freshman year.

"I haven't decided yet when I'll do it, but I know I'm going to early," said Aiono.

Aiono plays offensive tackle for South Hills, but sees his future inside.

"I'm getting recruited as a guard so I'm trying to do guard more at the camps," said Aiono. "I'm just trying to get better and show at these camps. That's why I went up against (Scout 50 member) Antwaun Woods first. The first one I lost, but I went up again and won. That's what I look for at camps, the competition."
