"I have a couple of friends from Carlsbad that went to UCLA, and they have talked it up a lot to me," said So'oto. "I went to two of their games last year and I really liked it. They have had some good players go through there and it would just be a great place to go."
As many players have mentioned previously, So'oto is very impressed by the 'SC coaches.
"They have a great coaching staff. I met them all at Junior Day and was really impressed. USC also has very nice facilities."
He really likes both tight end and linebacker, but he thinks he projects on offense in college and so does his coach.
Carlsbad Head Coach Bob McAllister says of So'oto, "He needs to put on some weight, but he has the body to do it. Vic has a great work ethic and I believe he can be a prototype tight end in college."
Vic believes his greatest assets are his strength and speed.
He will attend the UCLA Junior Day and San Diego State Nike Combine. The day after the Nike festivities he will go to the USC skills camp. So'oto went to the BYU summer camp last year.
He carries a 3.2 core GPA and took his SAT last Saturday. Vic would like to major in Sports Medicine.
