Tago Works for One Offer

Carson, Calif.— 6'0" and 213 pound Christian Tago attended the Big Man On Campus Passing Tournament last weekend and demonstrated his dual threat abilities. Although Tago has three official offers, he may have another school in mind...

Three-star recruit Christian Tago is a diverse player that stars on both sides of the ball for his Highland team in Palmdale, Calif. Tago plays quarterback and defensive back for Highland, and he played both positions during the Big Man on Campus Passing Tournament on Thursday and Friday. 

Tago has offers from UC Davis, Cal Poly, and San Diego State. Tago said that Washington State, Hawaii, Boise State, and UCLA have all expressed interest in him. Scout caught up with him briefly at the passing tournament on Friday.

"UCLA and Washington State have me listed as an athlete," said Tago. "I really could play any position they wanted me to in college."

Tago previously went to a UCLA camp over the summer where he worked out in three positions: quarterback, wide receiver, and safety.

"I really don't have a favorite right now, but I would really like for UCLA to offer me," said Tago.

Tago went to his second UCLA camp on Sunday, but has yet to receive an official offer. As a testament to his ability to play all over the field, San Diego State has extended a scholarship offer to Tago as a quarterback.

In 2010, Tago completed 76 of 133 passes for 1,231 yards and 13 touchdowns. As a running back, Tago ran for 381 yards and had six touchdowns.

Scout.com ranks Tago as as 3-Star safety, but quarterback, receiver, or even linebacker aren't out of the equation when determining his future.
