Elk Grove (Calif.) Laguna Creek defensive lineman DeShon Matthews is having a strong senior season thus far but he's still waiting for an offer from the top schools on his list.
Matthews, 6-3, 245 pounds is averaging 12 tackles a game this year with two quarterback sacks and a blocked field goal. The rush end is one of the top linemen in the state this year and picked a number of early offers from schools like Arizona, Washington State, Nebraska, Oregon State, Washington and San Jose State.
"Cal and UCLA are my top two right now but I'm still waiting for an offer," Matthews said. "Cal probably has a slight edge and I just like the program a lot and have enjoyed going to their games this year. UCLA is cool too, it's close to home and both schools are strong academically and in football.
"The other schools a lot are Arizona, Fresno State and Washington, that's my top five right now but I haven't set any visits yet. I talk to those coaches a lot and I really enjoy talking with Pat Hill at Fresno State. He's a good guy with a lot of energy. I just took the SAT this past weekend but I got an 1120 the first time I took it. I'll take my trips after the season is over, right now, my main focus is helping our team win and we've been playing well so far this year."
