Committed OL Enjoys Tempe for the First Time

Much like his Euless (Tex.) Trinity teammate, Dimitri Nance, Saia Falahola verbaled to ASU before setting foot on campus. This past weekend he got to experience Sun Devil country, and told Devils Digest about his experience.

"It was real fun visit," said the 6-2.5 315 Saia Falahola. "I hung out with the players and I had a good time. They all made feel welcomed. My host players were Brandon Rodd and Shawn Lauvao – it helped to see so many Polynesian players on the team. I had so much fun on that trip I didn't want to go back home (laughs)."

"I enjoyed all the tours I took of campus. The facilities were real nice, the College of Education was great. I also really like the Scholar Baller program that Jean Boyd runs." Aside from enjoying the sights, Falahola admitted that he was acting as a recruiter for some of the players that were on the visit. "I told them how great ASU was," he said.

Other schools that were pursuing Falahola were Kansas State, New Mexico State and Colorado State. The left guard was voted 5A first team all-state in Texas.
