Profile - Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa
Kapolei High School, Hawaii defensive lineman Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa has picked up six offers thus far in his recruitment. Schools are beginning to learn about Myron and that offer list will probably grow before the spring evaluation period ends.
Myron is happy with the progress he’s seen in his recruitment. “I wake up each day and say I’m truly blessed to have so many schools after me.” Myron’s dream has been to get a free education by playing college football. He’s thankful that his hard work is paying off. “If I didn't take care of my schoolwork, I wouldn't be in the position of being able to use football to get my education at the next level."
Myron plays defensive end for his high school and most of the schools recruiting him like him at that position. “Some of the schools have said that I could put on some weight and play inside.” Myron is currently 6’4”-260. He is open to playing either position.
One of the schools looking at Myron is Georgia Tech. “Coach (Buzz) Preston was at my school and told my coach that he is very interested in me.” Myron was invited to visit this summer but the distance may be a factor in whether or not he’ll be able to take that visit. It’s a visit Myron wants to take but it’s one he’ll have to talk over with his parents. “They both love Coach Preston and he is known from his time coaching here a while back."
Myron feels that Tech could be one of the next schools to offer. He currently has offers from Army, Hawaii, Navy, Oregon State, Utah State, and Vanderbilt. Myron feels that Vanderbilt, Hawaii, and the two service academies are the ones recruiting him the hardest.
Aside from Hawaii, distance will be a factor in traveling to those schools. Because of that, Myron plans to take all five of his official visits. Navy and Vanderbilt are two of the schools that Myron plans to give official visits. “Hopefully Coach Preston and I can come up with a good time for me to come to Georgia Tech for an official visit. I’d love for that to happen."
Don’t look for an early decision from Myron. "It will most definitely be after my senior football season is done.” Myron will be looking for the school that gives him the best chance to be successful. He’ll also be looking for the coaching staff that not only helps him on the football field but gives him the best opportunity to be successful off the field.
