One of the best two-way trench players in southern California this season is Sione Fua (6-2, 295, 4.9) from Encino (Calif.) Crespi. The talented big man took his first visit to Cal before Christmas and took a visit to BYU to resume a very busy traveling schedule for the young man this January.
"My visit to BYU was a lot of fun," Fua said. "It was a good time up there."
"I had a very good experience," Fua said. "I was able to see the atmosphere and the type of type of people that go there."
"I didn't commit to BYU, however," Fua said. "I still have two trips to take before I make my decision to Stanford and Oregon. Next week (Jan. 13) I go to Stanford and the week after that I will visit to Oregon."
"After I take my last trip to Oregon," Fua said. "I will have the opportunity to see things how they are and make my final decision."
Fua is the type of talent who could make an impact on either side of the ball and some schools like him for offense while others like him as a defensive lineman.
"BYU is recruiting me specifically as a defensive player," Fua said. "Cal is recruiting me as an offensive lineman."
"Stanford will start me off as a defensive lineman," Fua said. "Oregon is recruiting me for defense."
Fua's decision will come out of Cal, BYU, Stanford and Oregon.
To give you an indication of the type of player Fua is his team won the SS CIF Section X championship and were undefeated with him on field. Crespi was 0-3 without.
Trenchmen do make a difference.
