New suitors popping up for Moeai

Snow TE Evan Moeai (6-3, 235) has had a bit of a complicated spring. He is eligible to sign with a school right now and he's seen three offers roll in and has a visit to a Pac 12 school all set for next week. Here's a look at where things stand and who some of the top suitors are for his services...

"I just got an offer from Utah today and I have a visit to USC set up for next Wednesday (April 24th)," Moeai told JCFootball.com.

In addition to his newest offer, Moeai already had offers from Georgia Southern and Colorado and has been hearing from schools across the college football spectrum including Arizona State, Oregon State and South Florida among others.

"I was supposed to visit South Florida back in March, but it never happened because my papers hadn't gone through," Moeai noted. "I'm qualified as a high school guy, but I still had to go through all the Clearinghouse stuff, so most of the schools that were after me up until this past week were assuming I was going to be qualified.

"Last week I got my paperwork approved, so I'm all qualified to go right now, but some of those schools haven't talked to me in a while, so honestly I don't know how much they are still after me.

"USC came up to see me last week and I worked out for them and then after coach (John) Baxter went back and talked to the other coaches about me, they decided to bring me down for a visit and I'm going next week."

As far as Utah is concerned, the Utes had Moeai up for an unofficial visit and that is when they extended the offer.

"Coach (Jay) Hill asked me to come up so I could meet coach (Kyle) Whittingham and when I was there, I talked to him for about 20 minutes and he said they were offering me," Moeai recalled. "I'm interested in them, but I'm not sure why, but I don't think they can trip me because they are full or something right now, so they said they can't get me on an official visit, but they said they will have a spot for me this fall."

Moeai said he plans to make a decision in the next few weeks and will enroll wherever he signs in the summer and he will have three years to play three starting this fall.
