Florida WR excited about Pac 10 choice

Tacoi Sumler is a talented wide receiver prospect from Columbus High in Miami and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Tacoi Sumler talked about the unofficial visits he took over the summer.

"I took one for Oregon, Stanford, FIU, Cal and UCLA. My unofficial to Oregon was by far the best. Stanford was nice; I mean they had a beautiful campus and good facilities as well. I was really impressed by their coaches and players. FIU, being the home team was pretty good too, I have seen FIU before, but being there again and being recruited by them was a great process. UCLA was nice to come at the campus was tight and compact, I mean everything was closed so you don't need a car to get anything. Cal was a good visit, I like the town and the setup. I like that it's in the mountains and it has a great scenery."

Following his visits, Sumler committed to Oregon. He remains strong with that decision and talked more about the Ducks.

"I committed to Oregon because pretty much on the field and off the field it is just the best fit for me. I can go in and have it chance of starting and at same time I can study what I want to study. I'm taking my official to Oregon October 2 when they play Stanford."

With one visit already set, Sumler doesn't plan on taking any others right now but they could arise.

"I don't have any more set up are now but if they come they come. I might go out there to see Stanford, one of the games is here but besides that I don't have any set up right now."

Since his commitment to Oregon, Sumler says the recruiting process has slowed way down.

"Ever since I committed to Oregon, it's just been Oregon State for me and just trying to get ready for this upcoming season. I'm getting ready for the season, but if a school is still recruiting me I'm not devastated on the chance because anything can happen, but right now I'm all Oregon."

The standout receiver, who claims a 3.7 GPA and a 1230 SAT score, talked about his goals for this season.

"I just want to help my team get to the state championship. We got some nice receivers on the squad, and we look to lead this team this year. We have an Anthony Rabasa and Deon Bush that are gonna be helping us out. I am trying to get a state championship ring before the high school."
