Could Hawaii athlete be close?

Keoni Bush-Loo took his official visit to Arizona this past weekend. Is he close to a decision? Will he visit Nebraska? Read on to find out.

Arizona received an official visit for 6-foot-3, 238-pound Honolulu (Haw.) Kamehameha athlete Keoni Bush-Loo and the three-star seems to have come away impressed with what he saw.

"The visit was well," Bush-Loo said. "I got to listen to all the things they had to say and looked at the town and everything was definitely a positive."

Bush-Loo did not hide the fact that one of his biggest concerns about possibly playing for Arizona was the offense. Rich Rodriguez does not have a major reputation of developing tight ends, but Bush-Loo says he did a good job of outlining what his role would be.

"They have a guy named Taimi Tutogi, who is kind of a fullback, H-back kind of guy and a senior," Bush-Loo said. "They need me to come in there and just go in there and be able to move around.

"If I come into the offense I will be fullback, tight end, and even in the slot as a wideout. I guess Rodriguez at Michigan was working on that and they are going to try to use the tight end more."

In terms of what impressed Bush-Loo the most, he says it was simply the opportunity to finally meet the coaching staff and further developing his relationship with it.

"I guess Rodriguez and the rest of the coaching staff stood out," Bush-Loo said. "I had only met Coach Anae and Coach Leftwich was a very good guy. If I go there he will be my coach. He is a really cool guy and knows a lot."

Bush-Loo admits that his recruitment is coming to an end and while it originally looked like it would end close to Signing Day, that may not be the case now.

"I am not too sure right now," he said. "I am just going to go home and think about things. My visit to Nebraska is up in the air. I am not too sure yet.

"I would probably say Arizona is the leader right now. I am going to make my decision before Signing Day. I am going to wait a couple days or even make it on Monday."
