UCLA One of Four Programs on 4-Star Malone Mataele the Hardest

Feb. 23 -- Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita athlete and UCLA target Malone Mataele is one of the more versatile players out West and had a very good showing at running back at the recent Under Armour All-America Camp in SoCal...


Malone Mataele is one of our favorite players out West and shows the versatility to play three or even four different positions in college.

He worked out at running back at the Under Armour AA Camp last Sunday and had a very good day. He's currently rated as an athlete but would be on the short list of players when talking about the top overall running back prospect in the region.

On the recruiting front, Mataele said the schools recruiting him hardest include the Arizona WildcatsStanford Cardinal and Virginia Cavaliers and he's hopeful of visiting all three during the spring. 

UCLA is also heavily involved and the athlete took an unofficial visit to Westwood on Monday.
