"I'm wide open right now. I'm still into the schools that want me to take official visits," said Tonga. "But I'm leaning towards three schools right now."
"I'm going to take a visit in early December to Oregon and in January to BYU," said Tonga. "I'll be setting up a trip with UCLA for probably December."
With his older brother playing for BYU, Tonga said that his family is hoping he follows suit and ends up in Provo. "My family is leaning towards BYU because of my brother. I talk to Coach Doman a lot. It would be cool to play there," said Tonga.
Recruiting Tonga to UCLA is Jon Embree and for Oregon it is Michael Gray. "All of the coaches at the schools I've talked to are real cool and good people. I'd be cool at any school I go to and the coaches would be good to play for," said Tonga.
Tonga's team will begin the CIF Playoffs this weekend with a first round game against San Jose (Calif.) St. Francis. They are standing at 9-1.
Academically, Tonga is carrying a 3.5 GPA and will take the SAT in December.
