As this weekend's game against Washington State approaches, the list for athletes on official visits is becoming clearer. Mo Unutoa will be heading to the state of Oregon for the first time, flying across the Pacific from Hawaii to check out Gary Andersen's Oregon State program.
The under the radar offensive tackle is excited for the opportunity to come to the mainland not only because it is his first official visit, but also his first time being in Oregon. Mo currently has a three-star rating with offers from Hawaii, Central Florida, Utah, Washington State, Brigham Young and Virginia, in addition to the Beavers.
"I'm really looking forward to experiencing the family atmosphere that Coach K (Coach Kauha'aha'a) and Coach Andersen have been telling me about. As I've looked into colleges, the number one thing that I'm looking for is that family feeling overall. So I'm looking to see if I feel that between the coaches, the players and all over campus."
One of the major drawing points to Oregon State for Unutoa is the amount of love that the Beavers' coaches have been showing him.
"I've been texting with Coach K and Coach Andersen for a while now, we talk about every week. I just feel like they really care about me and I feel that I would really want to play for coaches like that."
With his excitement for his visit, Mo will probably hold off on making a commitment, as he would like to still take a few more visits.
"I'm thinking about going to Virginia in December and then Utah and BYU in January."
Unutoa will be leaving Hawaii for Oregon State Thursday evening. BeaverBlitz will catch back up with Mo Unutoa, as well as all of the other official visitors, as they leave Corvallis to head back home.
