"I really liked the whole football program I saw there," said Tuitu'u. "They look like they are going to have a winning attitude in the future and the coaches are definitely running a hard program. I liked everything about it."

Richard likes Arizona, UCLA, Nebraska, Florida, and Washington right now. He does not claim a favorite.

He believes he will be recruited for the tackle position and thinks he has a lot of qualities to apply at the spot.

"I have really good feet. I think that I also have good leadership qualities because a lot of the younger players look up to me. I am a strong player."

His coach has high praise for him as well.

Highland Head Coach Preston Jones says of Tuitu'u, "He has outstanding feet and is only 16 so he is still very young. He is a hard worker and we have high expectations for him."

Richard says he might attend the ASU Junior Day later this month. He is unsure at this point of his summer camp plans.

Tuitu'u carries a 2.8 core GPA and will take his ACT next month. He would like to major in Business.
