Akuna puts recruiting on hold

Kapolei (Hawaii) outside linebacker Shaydon Akuna has made little progress toward selecting a college. He is just happy to be back on the field.
The four-star prospect missed the Hurricanes' first four games due to a hip injury. Now back in action, his team, considered one of Hawaii's most talented squads, is sitting at 2-3.
"I haven't really done anything because I am busy with football," Akuna said. "Our season is not what it is supposed to be. We have to win two or three more games, and we should be able to make the playoffs."
Akuna says he is playing at three different spots on defense- safety, outside linebacker, and defensive end.
"It is fun because I really want to play safety too. It is good for me to be able to play both of those positions, but I want to play linebacker at the next level."
Though Akuna is putting off recruiting for now, he knows of a few schools that continue to pursue him heavily.
"Right now Wyoming and Oregon call me a lot," Akuna said. "There is Oregon State, Arizona, and Arizona State too. I am probably going to visit Oregon, Oregon State, and maybe UCLA. I would like to visit Notre Dam too. I am interested in UCLA and Notre Dame, but I am not hearing much from them."
Akuna said he does not have any favorites at this time.
"They all are pretty much the same," Akuna said. "The schools are similar, they have the same things, it is just about who makes me the most comfortable and pushes the hardest to get me."
Kapolei visits 3-2 Waipahu on Friday night.
