Okun recruitment gets busier

Zach Okun woke up one morning with a text message from his coach that another offer had arrived.
That's how it's been so far for the 2015 offensive lineman from Newbury Park, Calif., who has steadily seen his recruitment pick up in recent months.
The newest offer came from Kansas State and the 6-foot-4, 303-pound prospect said it was shocking.
"That one came as a complete surprise," Okun said. "I woke up one morning with a text from my coach saying they wanted to offer me. It was cool but I wasn't really expecting it at all."
UCLA, Arizona and Washington have also offered Okun, expected to compete at the Rivals Camp Series by Under Armour on March 10 in Los Angeles, and he said Notre Dame and Oregon have shown new interest.
The Bruins have looked good early in his recruitment and a commitment was considered but Okun said he wants to wait a while longer because his recruitment has picked up so much.
Still, UCLA has to be considered a favorite as things go on.
"I still have a lot of interest in UCLA," Okun said.
"I want to take the process a little longer now with more schools getting involved. They'll be in at least the top three for a long time."
Time is on Okun's side, though, since he has so much of it left before he has to make a decision. Okun has not even started his junior season yet so his recruitment could really take off.
"I am happy," Okun said. "I'm just excited to see how it plays out. I hope it continues. I have a lot of options and I just want to keep looking at things right now."
