Saratoga Springs (Utah) linebacker Moana Ofahengaue talked recruiting at the Semper Fidelis Bowl…
Utah Still In The Mix
Over a year later, the Westlake (UT) senior still has no favorites.
"They're all about equal right now; I'm not favoring anybody or leaning toward anyone."
The talented outside linebacker has an impressive list of offers from programs such as Nebraska, Washington, BYU, Cal, and Utah, but so far has only a visit to Utah scheduled.
"Coach Hill and Coach Sitake were at my house yesterday. We just talked about how things were going and I confirmed my visit date with them."
"I'll be visiting Utah on January 20th."
Though he hasn't taken any official visits yet, Ofahengaue plans to announce his school of choice on January 3rd when he participates in the Semper Fi All-American Bowl. While there, he'll play with fellow Utah recruits Matt Cochran and Marcus Rios.
According to Moana, academics will play the biggest factor in where he plays his ball. He considers his education "very important" while he attends college and he plans to study Business Management wherever he goes.
Whether he's asked to redshirt or steps in and contributes right away, Ofahengaue says he'll work hard each and every day.
"I'm not too worried about playing time. I know if I'm not playing or seeing time on the field that it means I just need to work harder."
Moana is scheduled to take the ACT Test tomorrow (12/10) and plans to begin scheduling visits with other offering schools next week.
Though he will likely announce his destination before his first official trip, he still hopes to get out and check out all of his options.
