Fort Scott College DT Justin Taimatuia (American Samoa) has currently reeled in over ten offers and says that Boise State is his leader at this point in his recruitment. The talented DT will be in Boise this fall for an official visit and says the coaching staff has told him that he has an opportunity to compete for a starting position heading into 2013. So, why is Boise State his leader?

"I'm going to take an official to Boise on October 13th," he said. "It's closer to home...not that far from California. Boise State is one of those schools that not everybody can go to, so that's an opportunity for me. I want to check it out."

"They've been recruiting me hard," he stated. "I spoke to Coach Petersen yesterday and I also speak to the D-coordinator and D-line coach. They've been recruiting me since spring ball when they came out here to watch me play."

"They tell me I have a chance to play early, compete for a starting position, and that I'm one of their top recruits," said Taimatuia. "They graduate a couple interior D-line guys after this year and would like for me to come in early if I can."

So, what does Taimatuia know about Boise State besides the blue turf?

"Coach Petersen asked me what do I know about Boise besides the blue turf," he said with a laugh. "I told him that's about all right now, but that I watch them play on TV too. I know their players are well-coached and that's what I want."

"I consider Boise State my leader."

He went on to say that he's hoping to graduate in December and enroll in January, but it's also possible that he'll graduate this spring and enroll in the summer.

"It all depends right now," said Taimatuia. "I'm hoping I can enroll in January after I get my AA, but Boise State told me it doesn't really matter and that I'll have a scholarship even if I have to graduate in the spring. I liked hearing that."

"They run multiple schemes on defense," he said. "I feel I could fit in well with that. I think I could play well in any defense, 3-4, 4-3, any of them. I know they have lots of speed on the D-line and I can picture myself there. I was excited to see that they put a bunch of guys in the league last year."

So, what does Justin Taimatuia (6'1, 300) bring to the gridiron?

"The coaches have told me that I'm fast, have good footwork, and that I'm a good tackler," he said.
