Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes defensive lineman Benning Potoae, the state's No. 1 defensive prospect, will announce his college decision on Thursday afternoon at his school.

"Benning is going to announce on Thursday at 2:15 p.m. PT in the career center at Lakes HS," said Lakes head coach Dave Miller.

Potoae will be choosing from between hometown Washington, where he visited last weekend and UCLA, where he visited in November.

Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich will be in his home on Wednesday evening, thought its unlikely Potoae will visit the Ducks.

Last Sunday night, UCLA head coach Jim Mora and a number of assistants visited Potoae.

On Thursday, after his announcement, Potoae will host Washington head coach Chris Petersen and a handful of Husky assistant coaches.

"He had a good trip to Washington and now he's just ready to make his decision," said Miller.

Scout will be at Lakes HS on Thursday for Potoae's announcement.
