Kache Palacio committed to SMU in early July partly because he loved how assistant coach Adrian Klemm recruited him and while the Mustangs are still the favorite the Gardena (Calif.) Serra prospect is looking at taking some visits.
Nothing has been scheduled yet but Palacio, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound defensive end said Arizona State, Oregon State, Colorado, New Mexico and San Jose State are still involved and he's considering trips over the next few months.
"I still have my options open," Palacio said.
"I'm still looking and I'm open to pretty much anything. I'm going to look at other schools."
While Palacio, who finished with 70 tackles, 16 sacks and an interception in his junior season is considering trips to other schools he has not set up anything yet. He is looking to take a visit to SMU soon but isn't sure which date would work best.
The decision to commit this summer happened because of his strong relationship with Klemm, who has done a fantastic job landing players from Southern California in recent recruiting classes.
"Coach Klemm is a great recruiter," Palacio said. "He was easy to talk to and he was really comfortable to be around."
Like many other SMU commits from California, Palacio wants to investigate all his options before National Signing Day though.
South Gate (Calif.) South East running back Robert Lewis, Los Angeles Venice wide receiver Gabriel Marks and Culver City, Calif., linebacker Khalil Pettway are all planning other visits.
Palacio is in that camp as well.
"I'm going to keep my options open," he said.
