"I just got an offer from Wisconsin," Tuioti-Mariner said. "I'm pretty excited about it because they are a pretty good school with a lot of tradition and they think a lot of my game."
Wisconsin isn't the only school that has made a positive impression on Tuioti-Mariner.
"The UA coaches saw me at my high school showcase and they called my coach shortly thereafter," Tuioti-Mariner said. "They told my coach they were really impressed by my athleticism and strength and that they were impressed by how well I move.
"It's a Pac-12 school that isn't that far from home, so I'm definitely going to look further into Arizona."
Tuioti-Mariner has a different priority list than many other major college prospects.
"Honestly, academics are the main thing I'm focused on when looking at a school," Tuioti-Mariner said. "I feel I'm good enough that I will be able to contribute to most schools, but not every school has the academics that others do.
"It's also very important to me that whatever school I choose has a quality support staff. I plan on putting a lot of time in on that front and I want to feel the school is looking out for me academically.
Tuioti-Mariner does not have an exact timetable, but does have an idea of when he would like to make a college decision.
"Hopefully, I can get everything figured out and I will decide sometime around the bowl game, but I'm not completely committed to that, either," he said. "I'm happy though because I already have some good schools recruiting me and it's still kind of early."
