Carlsbad TE has favorite
Three-star tight end/outside linebacker Vic So’oto (6-4, 215, 4.6) from Carlsbad, Calif., may be inching ever closer to making a decision but before he does he wants to take a couple of visits before hand.
So’oto has a current top four schools of BYU, Arizona, Washington State and San Diego State.
All four schools have offers. He also has offers from Oregon State, UTEP, Wyoming and Utah.
The talented two-way standout has already taken one visit to BYU and two other visits scheduled to Arizona and Washington State.
“I like Arizona because there is an opportunity for early playing time and I like the coaches,” So’oto said. “I like the same things about Washington State as I do about Arizona.”
“Washington State’s tight end coach was the one that coached Todd Heap when he was at ASU,” So’oto said. “Heap left early because the coaching staff changed.”
How did So’oto like his visit to BYU?
“The visit to BYU went great,” So’oto said. “I connected with the coaches on a spiritual level, too, since I’m a Mormon.”
“The BYU coaches were very straight forward and told me I had to prove myself at either linebacker or tight end,” So’oto said. “BYU has a slight edge because my cousin Russell Tialavea (6-3, 265, 5.0) (plays for offensive line for Oceanside) committed to them.”
Whoever lands So’oto will be getting a heck of a football player. So’oto is one of the reasons that Carlsbad is a perfect 6-0 while playing one of the toughest schedules in San Diego County.
In his six games, So’oto has 23 receptions for 515 yards and three touchdowns.
As a junior, So’oto was selected all-league after catching 17 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns from his tight end spot. As a linebacker, So’oto racked up 80 tackles and had one fumble recovery.
