ASU Prospect OL Taitusi Lutui

The local Mesa high school senior made the short drive to Tempe for his first official visit this past weekend. Is home cooking what Lutui is looking for?

"Close to home is important" says the 6-4 340 offensive lineman, "but in some ways I fell that I could go away from home and be OK. But ASU has a lot to offer." We called Lutui right before a scheduled home visit from Utah, who he will visit on 1/12, one week after his visit to BYU. These three schools are is favorites, but he doesn't favor one over the rest. He also has a 1/18 visit scheduled with UNLV. When I asked the lineman on his ASU visit, he said: "It was great, but I had to cut it short and go home to take care of some stuff. The players are a good definition of a team and teamwork. The coaches are real good guys too." He the Mesa high school player said he doesn't expect to make a decision before he takes all his visits.

When I asked him about his strengths and weaknesses, he replied: "I'm very good at pass blocking. I enjoy picking up blitzes, and working with audibles. I still need to work on my strength and run blocking." Lutui carries a 2.5 GPA, and plans to retake the SAT in the middle of January.
