Three-star two-way standout Dominique Austin (6-4, 240, 4.9) from La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat five offers on the table and he's getting serious attention from schools across the nation. He will be taking an unofficial visit to an ACC school next week.
Austin has offers on the table from Arizona, Colorado State, Utah, Nevada and North Carolina A&T.
Austin earned all-area and all-league as a junior after racking up 30 tackles, five forced fumbles and one sack.
One of the things that colleges like about Austin is he's a very aware and smart football player. An example of his football intelligence is his five forced fumbles. They are combination of hard hits and strips. He is very adept at getting his paws on the football and forcing a fumble.
Austin attended two camps this spring and summer. He attended the NIKE Camp in Los Angeles in April and USC's camp in June.
"I learned better techniques at both camps," Austin said. "I learned to speed rush better. I'll be able to that technique instead of always bull rushing. I also improved my hand techniques a lot since going to the camps.
"I don't have any favorite schools at this time," Austin said. "I want to see more schools.
"I can't choose based on visiting two schools," Austin said. "I have already visited Arizona and San Diego State.
"I really liked Arizona's campus it was very big and comfortable," Austin said. "At San Diego State it went really well.
"San Diego State has a lovely campus and liked it because it was close to home," Austin said. "I related San Diego to my own home town.
"I'm taking an unofficial visit to Wake Forest next week and I'm planning on taking official visits to Utah, UNLV and Nevada."
What is Austin looking for in a college?
"Mainly academics because my parents are really big on education," Austin said. "I also want to attend a school where I feel comfortable at and can picture living there for four to five years.
"I would like to make my college decision sometime during or near the beginning of my senior season.
