Westlake High (Saratoga Springs, UT) linebacker Moana Ofahangue is one of the more sought after players in Utah with 20 offers and more likely on their way.

"I'm talking to a lot of teams right now. Nebraska has been sending a lot of letters and they just recently offered. Them and Utah are recruiting me the hardest."

Ofahangue recently visited Utah for their annual Junior Day and was impressed by what he saw.

"They are a really nice school. I feel really good with them at this point."

The versatile defender has lined up at both defensive end and linebacker in high school and is being recruited at both positions, despite having a preference of one over the other.

"I prefer defensive end, and that's my main position, but sometimes i go to outside linebacker. I feel like my speed and get-up are prefect for defensive end."

Without a clear set of criteria for making a decision, Ofahangue is going to go with feel and instinct when he does decide on which school is best for him.

"I'm going to go off of instinct. Find out how the school is and which one feels best. if it feels right, then that's where I'll go."

While he's starting to narrow things down in his head, Moana is still months from making a final decision on where he'll play his college football.

"I still want to visit other schools before I make a final decision. I'll probably do it at some point during my senior year season."
