Levi talks recruiting

Now that he's been named the Nor Cal Defensive Player of the Year and completed his season with his team, College of San Mateo DT Rika Levi (6-3, 360) has turned is focus toward recruiting and finding a place to play in 2014. JCFootball.com caught up with him over the weekend and he updated us on where things stand...

"Things are good. I had a great season individually and as a team I think we played really well together," Levi told JCFootball.com. "It was a huge honor to get that honor (Defensive Player of the Year) and it just shows you how great our team was in addition to how well I played."

Levi finished his sophomore campaign with the Bulldogs by racking up 39 tackles, three sacks and 12 tackles-for-loss after posting 23 tackles, three sacks and 6.5 tackles-for-loss as a freshman in 2012.

With his season now behind him, Levi has turned his attention to recruiting and this past weekend he took an unofficial visit to Seattle to watch Washington take on Washington State in the 106th Apple Cup.

"It was a great visit," Levi noted. "I got to see the facilities. I was here in the spring, but they weren't done yet, so this time I got to see them when they were finished and that place is pretty amazing to see."

Levi will be in Seattle this coming weekend for an official visit and then, things are sort of up in the air.

"I wanted to see a game there and get the gameday atmosphere, so that's why I came up a week early," Levi said. "I'm headed back up there this weekend and then I'm talking to Texas Tech and Kentucky about visiting. I've talked to Oregon State and a couple of others about doing that too, so we'll see what happens."

Levi is on pace to graduate in May and he will have three years to play two starting in the fall of 2014.
