Offensive guard/defensive tackle Jeremiah Tofaeono (6-5, 320) from North Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne has a busy January ahead of him. He had an official visit to Nevada this past weekend and he has three more scheduled this month as the class of 2009 recruiting is beginning to wind down.
"My visit to Nevada went very well," Tofaeono said. "I really liked the atmosphere there for football."
"I really didn't much about Reno because I thought it was a small town," Tofaeono said. "But once I learned more about the town and Nevada's football program, I was very impressed."
"Nevada wanted me to commit to them before they would officially offer," Tofaeono said. "I didn't commit because I really want to take my other trips."
"I really enjoyed my trips though and I thanked Nevada's coaches very much," Tofaeono said. "I hope they understand that I just want to take my trips so that I can make the right decision and see where I fit in best."
Tofaeono will visit Utah State this coming weekend January 16th. He will follow that visit to one to South Dakota on January 23rd and his scheduled visit will be to Washington on January 30th.
The second ranked Utah Utes are working on setting up a visit with Tofaeono.
"I will make up my mind after I take all my visits," Tofaeono said. "Then I will sit down with my parents and talk about everything and make my college decision."
Tofaeono is being recruited as an offensive guard and a defensive tackle. He earned first-team all-state as an offensive player and second-team all-state as a defensive tackle for his senior season performance.
Tofaeono earned a spot on the Rivals.com Nevada Preseason Top 20 for the class of 2009 landing as the Silver State's No. 13 prospect at any position.
