Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne linebacker Keishawn Bierria (6-1, 210), has been a big part of the Gauchos' success this season.

A 14-0 record has Narbonne playing in the CIF SoCal Regional Open Division Game this weekend against Corona (Calif.) Centennial, the winner playing in the state championship next weekend.

And while the offense has gotten most of the ink for Narbonne, Bierria spearheads a pretty stout defense, one that shutout Crenshaw 25-0 in the City Finals and one that shutout eventual Pac-5 champion Long Beach Poly, 50-0.

"I just keep my focus on my team right now, it's been a fun season, but we still have some goals to reach," said Bierria.

Bierria has a handful of offers, but six schools have been the most aggressive in recruiting him.

"I don't have a top five or anything, I'm pretty much open with schools," said Bierria. "I'm hearing mostly from Arizona State, Oregon State, Oregon, Washington State, Colorado and Colorado State."

Arizona State and Washington State have come by in the last week, and Bierria said those two, plus Oregon State, Colorado and Colorado State have been hitting him the hardest.

"Arizona State came by to and wants me to set up my official visit," said Bierria. "And I'm definitely wanting to visit Oregon State. I've been there for an unofficial and I want to go back out there for an official. It looks like I'll have to take my visits late, but that's good for us cause it means we're playing."

Bierria said all the schools recruiting him want him on defense, but opinions differ for which specific spot he'll play.

"I've heard outside linebacker, will backer, rover, or even switch from weakside to safety," said Bierria. "Right now, I'm an athlete. If they want me to play a certain position, I'll do it."

Because Bierria is wide open, he said he'll definitely get out to all five official trips.

"I want to take all five of my official visits because I'm not sold on one school," said Bierria.

On the year, Bierria has 98 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception.
