Moeai unlikely to return to Snow in 2013

After an outstanding freshman season in 2012, Snow TE Even Moeai (6-3, 235), a full-qualifier, has garnered attention from several schools looking to bring him in this summer. caught up with the big, sure-handed prospect recently and he updated us on where things stand...

"I had several schools start coming after me, but right now the most serious are South Florida, Kansas and Oklahoma State," Moeai told "I don't have any offers yet, but I think it's just a matter of time because they've all gotten my transcripts and they are watching my film.

"I'm hoping to find out in the next week or so about some offers and when that happens, I'll take some visits and decide."

As a freshman this past fall, Moeai hauled in 32 receptions for 375 yards and eight scores, ranking second on the team in all three categories, while also being a stalwart in the running game.

"I've always taken pride in my blocking," Moeai said. "I'm pretty strong and I play good with leverage, so I feel really comfortable, but this year I'd say I was even better in the passing game just because they used me really well and I was able to get open a lot.

"I felt I did pretty well this season. I know there is a lot I could work on, but I felt like I did pretty well and held my own."

Moeai is LDS, so he said he's open to taking his mission within the next year, however, if he signs with a four-year school before that decision is made he will delay that until after his playing days are over.

"If I ended up signing with a four-year school, I would wait to take my mission until later in my life," Moeai said. "I just want to see what happens in the next couple of months on that end and then I'll start thinking about what I'm going to do."

Should Moeai sign with a school this winter or spring, he will have four years to play three wherever he ends up.
