Hawaii athlete goes public with commitment

Arizona has received yet another commitment this week. Read inside to see who it is, why he made his decision, and more.

Arizona's momentum is continuing this week, as 6-foot-3, 238-pound Honolulu (Haw.) Kamehameha athlete Keoni Bush-Loo made his decision public on Thursday.

"I committed to Arizona on Saturday, but decided to make it public today," Bush-Loo said. "I talked to Coach Rodriguez on Saturday and we talked it over and then I talked it over with my family and it was over from there"

Bush-Loo took an official visit to Arizona this past weekend and while it is difficult for him to point to one reason why he decided to come to Arizona, Bush-Loo says that coming to Tucson just seemed like the best fit.

"The visit went well," he said. "There was not really one reason. Everything was good about it. They have a whole new great coaching staff and they really wanted me a part of their program."

Going into his official visit, Bush-Loo made no secret of the fact that he was a bit skeptical of how he would be used in the offense.

However, since then, he has had numerous conversations with Rodriguez and tight ends coach Spencer Leftwich, who have made Bush-Loo comfortable with his future role.

"Coach Leftwich explained to me that the offense is working on using a tight end and H-back and full back," Bush-Loo said. "I know that I will be moving around a lot and the coaches are going to work on getting me involved in the offense in a lot of ways."

In the past few weeks, Rodriguez and company have sold Bush-Loo on their vision and it now seems that he shares that vision.

"Coach Rodriguez wants to make a legacy at Arizona and I have decided that I want to be a part of that legacy."
