Now Taumoeanga is hoping some Pac-12 schools get involved.
Taumoeanga said that the Beavers and Bruins, as well as the hometown Vikings and Idaho, stand atop the list.
"I really have heard from all the schools I'm considering," said Taumoeanga. "I'm pretty happy with the schools recruiting me."
"I'm open to any school that is considering me and wants to offer me," said Taumoeanga. "Oregon State and UCLA are just kind of where my heart is. But I'm still keeping it open and I'm not going to commit anywhere right away."
Oregon State defensive line coach Joe Seumalo and UCLA defensive coordinator Lou Spanos are also expected to be at Roosevelt this spring, and Taumoeanga talks with them both.
"They both said they want to see me in workouts," said Taumoeanga. "I took an unofficial visit to Oregon State and met with Coach Seumalo and he really likes me."
Taumoeanga is LDS and plans to serve his mission right after high school, then come back as a true freshman in 2016.
This summer, he'll camp at BYU, Oregon, Oregon State and the NFTC in Oregon.
