Utes offer LB

Lawndale (Calif.) Leuzinger linebacker Uona Kaveinga (6-1, 235) picked up a pair of offers as the week closed. All indications are that they are but the first of many.

"Uona received his first offer from Utah on Thursday," said Leuzinger assistant coach Ralph Oliver. "And he got his second offer today from BYU."

A pair of Pac-10 schools are also showing some interest in him.

"Oregon just requested some more film, so they may be offering him soon," said Oliver. "UCLA requested film on Monday so we sent that off. UCLA likes him possibly as a fullback."

The Bay League Defensive Player of the Year as a junior, Kaevinga earned second-team all-state underclass in 2006. He was an all-CIF selection and finished the year with 111 tackles, 16 quarterback hurries, nine sacks, five deflections, five fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles.

Here is Kaveinga in action during the 2006 season:
