BYU, Arizona, Cal, Stanford and most of the programs in the Pac-10 have also shown recruiting interest.
"I would like to go to BYU because I'm Mormon," Fuga said. "But If I don't go there, it's not going to be a total disappointment. I also have interest in staying close to home."
Fuga will most likely take his Mormon mission after he turns 19.
Last season, Fuga gave up just three sacks and recorded roughly 50 pancake blocks.
"I think my best attribute is my resilience and the fact I never break down," he expressed. "Some players let a bad play affect them. But I always make a bad play motivate me."
Academically, Fuga projects as a full-qualifier. He currently maintains a "B" average.
