Moline Now Has Decision to Make

Mission Viejo, Calif., defensive tackle <b>Chase Moline</b> took his official visit to another school last weekend, like the UCLA coaches suggested. He now gives us an update on where he stands in regards to the two schools he's considering...

After taking his official visit to UCLA January 8th, Mission Viejo (Calif.) defensive lineman Chase Moline (6-1, 240) was told by the UCLA staff to take his trip to Boise State and then make his decision.

So Moline did that this last weekend, and returned from Boise State with a tougher decision that he expected.

"When I got back from UCLA, I was really wanting to go there," Moline said. "But Boise State was a good trip, so now I have to choose. I've been debating, weighing the pluses and minuses between the two."

Moline said that he hopes to have a decision made by Friday.

He will receive an in-home visit on Monday night from the Boise State staff, and UCLA defensive coordinator Larry Kerr will be in later this week to pitch the Bruins.

"It's going to be hard. I really like both schools, so it's where I feel the most comfortable at," said Moline.

One of the stars for Mission Viejo, who finished #2 in the nation this year, Moline was named the Southern California Lineman of the Year by the Los Angeles Times, and was one of the players receiving great raves during CaliFlorida Bowl practice.

Moline made his first official trip to UCLA, which was originally supposed to take him to San Diego State. When UCLA offered a visit he then cancelled his San Diego State trip.

Moline grew up a UCLA fan, and his parents both like UCLA as well, and he knows the academics there are top-notch.

Moline's brother, Chane is one of the top juniors in the nation, and Chase said he hopes wherever he goes, his brother follows.

Moline has a 3.0 GPA and a 960 SAT score, qualifying him.
