Which Side of the Ball for Tago?

The Palmdale (Calif.) Highland athlete, Christian Tago, played three positions at UCLA's camp but has his eyes on one, and his recruitment could hinge on which position he gets recruited for...

Palmdale (Calif.) Highland athlete Christian Tago (6-2, 213), did a little of everything at UCLA's Early Elite Camp on Sunday.

"I played quarterback, safety and receiver," said Tago. "They like me playing both ways. Coach (Rick) Neuheiesl said he wants me to come play for him. They like that I can play a lot of positions."

While Tago didn't get an offer from the Bruins, he did get one on Saturday after another school's camp.

"I went to San Diego State's camp on Saturday and they offered me as a quarterback," said Tago.

So Tago's biggest factor when picking a college will be which side that school recruits him for.

"Most schools are recruiting me as an athlete," said Tago. "But my position is quarterback."

Cal Poly and UC Davis also offered Tago as a quarterback, but he's not entirely shutting schools out that like him as an athlete.

"I'm open to everyone," said Tago. "I like USC and UCLA and we had Fresno State, Boise State, Washington, Washington State and Arizona all by and they all like me. And some schools outside the Pac-12 but I like the Pac-12. Utah and Utah State are also recruiting me."

Tago wants to see all of his options, and where those schools project him best, before making a decision.

"I want to take my trips before I commit," said Tago.

Tago has been busy with 7on7 tournaments, playing with Team AIGA at numerous tournaments including the upcoming BMOC Tournament next week in Carson and the New Level Athletics Naitonal 7on7 in Dallas, where he'll try to visit SMU unofficially.

Academically, he has a 3.3 and scored a 1400 on the SAT.
