Okun garners ACC interest

Zach Okun was the top offensive lineman at the recent Rivals Camp in Los Angeles and since that time he's received more interest from one ACC school in particular.
"I've been talking a little bit with Georgia Tech," Okun said. "That's pretty much it so far since the camp but I think it's going to pick up in the next few months. They're just showing interest so far.
"They said they saw my film somewhere. I talked to the coach, I gave him a call, and we talked for a while. I would like to get down there eventually. They said they like my film and stuff like that."
The 2015 offensive guard from Newbury Park, Calif., already has offers from Arizona, Kansas State, UCLA and Washington and many others could be on the way through his junior and senior seasons.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound prospect was outstanding at the Rivals Camp, dominated one-on-ones and is a physical, tough lineman who shined against all comers.
No off-season trips are scheduled at this point but Okun said he wants to take some visits and hopes to take a Midwest swing to stop by some powerhouse programs in that area.
Camping there would be a priority so he could show off his skills in front of the coaches as well.
"I don't have anything planned quite yet," Okun said. "Hopefully we'll sit down and figure it out but there's nothing right now.
"I'm going to try to go to a few camps if time permits. Hopefully I can make it out to a few schools like Notre Dame and Michigan."
Okun had considered an early commitment and UCLA was considered the favorite but the 2015 prospect has decided to hold off, play out the recruiting process a little longer and see which offers come in. The Bruins are still considered high on his list.
