Folau Sees Oklahoma State, Wisconsin Next

"It was really fun, a great experience, and it has really made me reconsider Oklahoma State as a place where I could end up going to school and playing football," standout Salt Lake City (East), Utah linebacker Christian Folau said on Monday night after making his official visit over the weekend to Stillwater and the OSU campus.

The 6-1, 240-pound inside linebacker that was once committed to Stanford and changed his mind to open back up his recruitment now has three options to apparently decided between.

"I've got my visit coming up to Wisconsin this weekend on the 22nd," Folau said. "I'm also considering Utah."

As for why he has Oklahoma State in the mix and still as an option after his visit, Folau complimented the program and its ability to develop players.

"I like the program and the very unique way they develop players," he said. "I like what coach (Mike) Gundy has done in building the program and the facilities are fantastic. I like my opportunities that would be there for me."

Folau, who missed a lot of his senior season with injuries, had 146 tackles and 11.5 sacks as a junior. He said his Oklahoma State host was Junior, as in Junior Galea'i, a freshman offensive guard from Euless Trinity. Player development specialist Beni Tonga was also involved in showing Folau around on his visit.

Now it will be interesting as Oklahoma State waits to see how the Wisconsin visit and the consideration of Utah work out. Folau is also a member of the Church for Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and as a Mormon will take a two-year religious mission, and has said he is leaning toward taking his mission directly out of high school.
