Leleihua HS star Charles Moku Watson made an official visit to BYU last weekend and came away saying BYU is his top school currently

Charles Moku Watson, the top rated safety in the state of Hawaii recently attended BYU for an official visit. The Leleihua High School star was highly impressed with the staff, atmosphere, academics, and overall campus experience.

Having recently de-commited from Washington State, Charles Watson recently flew in for an official visit to Provo, Utah to take a closer look at what BYU has to offer.

"I absolutely loved Utah," Watson said. "It was way better than I expected. I actually have a bunch a family that lives in Utah so they came over and some watched the game."

Looking for a coaching staff that is more like family, Watson found that type of disposition among BYU's coaches.

"The coaches were unreal," he said. "They are legit just like family. It's super fun to hang out with them because they joke around all the time and enjoy each other."

After visiting with the coaches, Watson was able to take all the sights and sounds of LaVell Edwards Stadium as BYU hosted Southern Utah last week.

"The game environment was crazy!" he said. "The support from the fans are crazy and they treat them like an NFL team. I also ate at some great places and loved the food."

Being non-LDS, Watson took the time to chat with the non-LDS players currently on the team to get their perspective on what it is like being on campus. What he heard made him smile.

"Talk to some players that aren't Mormon and got their insight on going there and they love it," Watson recalled. "I really felt like I was already on the team."

Wanting to study broadcast journalism, Watson got a chance to tour BYU's state of the art broadcast building. Needless to say he was very impressed with the program.

"They have there own media and broadcasting building modeled after ESPN, and that was what I'm excited most about being that's what I want to major in," Watson said.

To sum up his trip to BYU, Watson was highly impressed with what he learned and experienced. As of right now, Watson says BYU is his number one college choice.

"They have everything I want!" Watson said. "Plus I got family out there. Utah is not a bad spot and this trip really opened my eyes. I gotta say after my visit there BYU is my number one choice."
