Taua Excited for Weekend Visit

Lompoc (Calif.) defensive lineman Ainuu Taua will take his 4th official visit this weekend to UCLA and it sounds like the Bruins are in a good spot right now...

Ainuu Taua has already taken official visits to Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Washington State and will stay close to home to check out UCLA this weekend.

"Coach Mora and Coach Angus (McClure) came over for a home visit Wednesday night and it went really good," Taua said. "Coach Mora is too real man, he's a great guy and I would love to play for him. I would love to play for Angus too, he's a good DL coach and UCLA is definitely high on the list for me.

"Coach Mora, you can tell he's in it for the kids, he's all about the players and the school. He wants UCLA to be a great program and could have gone to Washington for more money but he's all about the guys on the team and I really respect that about him."

If the visit goes well, Taua said he may even pull the trigger.

"It's a possibility, we'll see," Taua said. "I've been to UCLA before and it always feels like home. I know this visit is going to be a good time for me and I'm just looking to see how I connect with the players and how comfortable I feel there. My family is coming up too and we're all excited to see how it goes, I'm really excited about it."
