Keisean Lucier-South is trying to figure out his top five for next month, but with so many programs are still talking to him it's been difficult for the four-star to cut down his list.
Florida, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA and USC are still near the top of the list, and the Orange (Calif.) Lutheran star said teams keep popping in and out and it's been tough to trim things down.
"I'm hearing a lot from Oklahoma now," Lucier-South said. "They're really on me now and they want me to go down there.
"I'm trying to decide my top five in August. That's what I'm trying to do right now and it's really difficult because all these schools are talking to me. The schools I'm really talking to right now are Oregon, USC, UCLA, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Texas and Oklahoma."
The 6-foot-4, 211-pound prospect, who could move exclusively to outside linebacker in his senior season, already has official visits scheduled to Notre Dame and Michigan, which he's called his dream school.
The others are undecided, but Lucier-South is certainly thinking about which avenues to pursue.
"I'm trying to decide my other official visits," Lucier-South said. "I might do USC and UCLA. I might do those, or I could do Oregon, Oklahoma, Tennessee. I'm still trying to work through that."
The local programs are definitely not backing down one bit in the recruitment of the second-best weak-side defensive end and No. 35 overall in the 2015 class by Rivals.com.
USC has stepped up its efforts recently and UCLA is right there as well. The Trojans and Bruins are coming hard after one of the top players in California.
"(USC) is coming off a break, but they're really on me," Lucier-South said. "Coach (Chris) Wilson is on me a lot. They really want me to go there. They really like my skill set. It's really big. I'm really honored. There are a lot of top players in the nation and they're really on me so it means a lot.
"(UCLA) was my first big offer in my sophomore season and I know them a lot. SC offered me at the beginning of my junior season, so it's a close race. I'm honored that they're both on me."
