Filimoeatu names his leader

Mt.San Antonio (CA) Community College's Bojay Filimoeatu will be taking an official visit to Ames this weekend. So what is his take on the Cyclones at this point?

"They are my number one choice right now," said Filimoeatu. "They really like me and it just makes me feel happy that they want to rely on me to help their defense. Right now things are leading me to Iowa State. I still am taking things slow as more offers might come but the more I hear about Iowa State the more I want to play for them."

The 6-foot-2, 255-pound defensive end has offers from Iowa State and Florida International and is hearing from Nevada, Arizona, Middle Tennessee, and Texas Tech.

Bojay told CSR that his recruitment with Iowa State started last spring.

"Coach Elliott came out and saw me last spring," said Filimoeatu. "He told me all about Iowa State and told me he wanted me to come there and dominate. He said the staff likes my pass rush ability. They also like my get off and my footwork."

Bojay also has been able to speak with Cyclone head coach Paul Rhoads and came away very impressed.

"He really likes Iowa State and he seems to really know defense," he said. "We got along pretty well during our phone conversation and what I really liked was that he told me that they want to be a blitzing team and that he feels I would have the chance to do that by coming in and starting my first year."

Filimoeatu had seven sacks for Mt.San Antonio back in 2008 but then he was hit with an injury bug heading into last season.

"During the summer after my first season I was at the SoCal combine and one guy tried to block me from behind and I ended up breaking my collar bone," he said. "Then when that healed I started practicing again and then I hyperextended my elbow so I ended up red-shirting last season.

So far Walton has 3 ½ sacks on the season and is fourth on the team in tackles.
