Sam Vakalahi is one of the prospects with the most momentum out West this spring evaluation period, with new offers from a few schools, including Alabama and Tennessee.

The four-star offensive guard from Salt Lake City (Utah) East can play on either side of the ball, using his strength to hold off defenders as a blocker but also the agility to be a force defensively. Vakalahi, the No. 1-rated offensive guard in the West region, told Scout.com he hopes to get out to Tuscaloosa and Knoxville now that he holds offers from both SEC programs, and has a trip to Washington scheduled for this coming weekend.

Vakalahi also drew a visit from UCLA last week and the Bruins view him as a defensive tackle, which intrigues the 6-foot-2, 296-pound prospect. He intends to make it back to Los Angeles for a visit this summer.
