Arizona three-star commit Taniela Maka (6-1, 220) from Long Beach (Calif.) Jordan has a very busy month of January planned. Though he is committed to Arizona, he has four official visits and he plans to take all four.
Maka will visit UCLA this coming to weekend on January 9th. He will follow that visit with one to Hawai'i on January 16th. Washington is next in line with Maka visiting Seattle on January 23rd and he will wrap up his busy month with a visit to Arizona's archrival Arizona State on January 30th.
"UCLA came to my school before the break and offered me a scholarship," Maka said. "It was at that point that we set up the visit."
"I'm going to take visits every weekend this month," Maka said. "I will be visiting UCLA, Hawai'i, Washington and Arizona State. I don't have any favorites right now."
"UCLA's stadium is nice, they play in the Rose Bowl," Maka said. "The coaches seem nice. I have met (linebacker) coach Chuck Bullough and (wide receiver) coach Reggie Moore. I will get to meet the rest of them this weekend when I visit."
"I have never been to Hawai'i before so I don't a lot about the school," Maka said. "This is going to be my first visit over there."
"Washington assistant coach Johnny Nansen came and told that Washington has some of the best facilities," Maka said. "I want to go there and check out if it is true."
"The Sun Devil coaches said that they have a good environment and they are trying to build something," Maka said. "With Arizona, I like the coaches at there. They are really good guys. The team is good and it seems like a good place to play and practice."
"I could commit to UCLA this weekend," Maka said. "Anything can happen. I plan to take visits regardless of what may happen."
Even though Maka only played six games as a senior he still made second-team all-league after accounting for 52 tackles, for an average of 7.4 tackles per game, four sacks and one fumble recovery.
