"Louisville and Kansas," Tanielu told JCFootball.com when asked who had offered him. "I'm talking to a lot of coaches right now -- USC, Oklahoma State, Arizona State, Baylor and Oregon State -- I talk to them on a weekly basis.
"USC is having me come to there Junior Day on June 20th they will most likely offer me then."
After a solid prep career at Waianae (Hi.) High School, Tanielu, who is LDS, went on his two-year mission.
"From 2011 to 2013, I went to Charlotte, North Carolina," Tanielu noted. "I didn't have the grades (out of high school) and snow offered me a scholarship right before I came home from my mission."
As a freshman last season, Tanielu played the three-tech spot for the Badgers, using his size and quickness to be a real thorn in the side of opponents.
Tanielu is on pace to finish up his academic work in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
