Los Angeles (Calif.) Harbor safety Esston Al-Uqdah had a pretty successful season with the Seahawks, racking up solid stats.

"I had a pretty good season. I had four interceptions, two of them for touchdowns. I had four pass break ups, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery," he said.

Al-Uqdah, who just finished his second season with the Seahawks, has already picked up a couple of offers and is hearing from a few more programs, as well.

"Recruiting has been all right. I've talked with a few schools and I have offers from Illinois and South Alabama. I recently took a visit to South Alabama, on December 7th. It was cool. I liked it; it was a nice place," he said.

The prospect says a visit to Illinois is in the works, as well.

"I'm planning on visiting Illinois, too. I just spoke with the coaches this morning and they are going to call me so we can plan a time for the visit," he said.

Though they haven't offered quite yet, a few more schools have been showing some interest in the defensive back.

"Missouri came up to the school to get my transcripts and they met me and talked with me for a while. I've been hearing from San Jose State and Old Dominion, too. I'd like to visit them, but we'll see what happens," he said.

Al-Uqdah is a spring graduate and will have three years to play two. Ultimately, he's looking forward to continuing on to the next level and putting his skill set to good use.

"I think I'm a good safety because I've been playing football for so long and I understand the game. I have quickness and a good reaction. When the ball goes in the air, the only thing I can think of is that it's mine," he said.
