"We are doing good," Tuaau said. "We are all healthy. We are all working. Everybody is doing what they are supposed to do. We pick each other up everyday and just do work."
Tuaau is still listed as a commitment to Hawaii, but he is going to get out and take some trips. He says that right now his focus is not on trips, but rather on his academics and trying to get his degree.
"Not really because I am trying to focus on my grades to get my associate degree. I don't really want to worry about taking any visits. When I talk to the coaches I ask detailed questions, press them, and just try and get good feed back."
While the grades are the immediate focus by Tuaau he says that taking some trips are crossing his mind. His first trip might be next weekend, which is a bye week for Riverside, that is unless he has school that he will need to take care of.
"I don't know. I might be looking at next weekend. If I don't have an exam or test I might go next weekend. I am considering taking a trip to Nebraska and Oregon State. It's between one of those two schools. I might not take a trip next weekend."
There might be some issues as to when Tuaau could be available to transfer to a four-year school. There is a class that he might have to re-take that could cause him to stay another semester. There is another possibility too which includes him finishing the course up on-line.
"I might have to wait until spring. What I am hearing is that one of my classes isn't going to transfer so I am going to have to take that class again. I am working on it. If I can, I might just take that class online and sign with a school. I will have two years to play two."
