Menlo-Atherton linebacker Daniel Heimuli continues to draw interest from college recruiters. He picked up three more offers this week, from USC, LSU and Illinois.

Heimuli called USC his "dream school" on his Twitter account.

“There are more to come,’’ M-A coach Adhir Ravipati said. “He’s done a real good job in the weight room and the classroom.’’

Heimuli, the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division Defensive Player of the Year as a junior, has also received offers from Washington, Oregon, Utah, Colorado, Arizona State, Fresno State and San Jose State.

“The way college football is evolving, with spread offenses and RPO, run-pass option, teams are looking for big safeties to play linebacker, guys who can play physical in the box and with the speed to play out in space,’’ Ravipati said. “Daniel is 6-2, 220, with long arms. He was the centerpiece of our defense and I think he’s just scratching the surface.’’
