Kayvon Thibodeaux, a five-star recruit in the 2019 class, has scholarship offers from pretty much everyone. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound prospect out of California is the No. 1 prospect in the country, after all.

The Thousand Oaks, Calif. native is likely a ways away from making a decision. However, he's previously said that he knows he'll be considering a couple of schools.

Thibodeaux spoke to 247Sports earlier this year about his recruitment and the schools he's looking at.

"I haven't cut my list yet but I'm trying, I'm really trying hard," Thibodeaux said. "There a lot of variables for me but it's becoming a big headache but my family and I are working on it and we'll get it done.

"A few schools I know that will make my list will be Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU, USC, UCLA and Michigan. That's not a top list or anything, just a few schools that I feel good about right now. I have Bama winning the National Championship and I like how they play. A&M has produced some good defensive ends and I'm looking forward to building that relationship more."

Thibodeaux also holds offers from programs like Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon and Tennessee, among others.

Two programs are believed by most to the frontrunners - USC and LSU. The Trojans hold most of the predictions on 247Sports' "Crystal Ball."

Thibodeaux's highlight tape is ridiculous. Whoever lands him is going to be getting a great one.
