Three-star offensive lineman Stanley Hasiak (6-6, 320, 5.4) from Kapolei, Hawai'i saw his stock get a boost with an outstanding camp performance at the USC Rising Stars Camp that saw him garner an offer from the Trojans. While on his visit to the mainland's west coast, he also took unofficial visits to UCLA and USC.
"The moment I arrived to Los Angeles I went straight to UCLA," Hasiak said. "I was going to participate in their camp, but (UCLA offensive coordinator) Norm Chow told me that UCLA just wanted a chance to recruit me and show me the whole campus."
"UCLA went very well," Hasiak said. "I was really impressed by the school and it is in a really rich neighborhood.
"UCLA's coaches were really cool guys and I liked the training facilities," Hasiak said. "It was an awesome part of the campus."
"I talked to Micah Kia and I know some of the walk-ons at UCLA," Hasiak said. "I really enjoyed UCLA."
"I then went to USC and participated in their camp," Hasiak said. "I like the look of USC's campus and I like the way USC practices. They are always going, going and going."
"I liked the entire camp and how USC does things," Hasiak said. "I kind of got a chance to see how USC does things there and I appreciated the opportunity."
After Hasiak's sojourn in Southern California, he went north to check out Cal.
"The trip to Cal was an eye opener," Hasiak said. "It was like a college town environment. The whole town is built around the school."
"I liked Cal's coaches ," Hasiak said. "I was able to speak to each and every one of them and they were all cool guys."
"After looking at the three schools, it has made the decision much harder," Hasiak said. "Now I'm going to wait until after the season and take my official visits."
"After I take my visits, and I get a chance to talk the coaches again and get a better feel for the schools, I'll choose the school with the coaches and the college that appeals to me," Hasiak said. "I don't have a short list of schools now. I'm thinking about narrowing things down soon, but right now, I'm pretty open."
After Hasiak returned to the rock, he took in the Education First Camp held at Aloha Stadium where he earned the camp's MVP award.
Hasiak attended the same camp going into his junior season and was the camp's lineman MVP, so did even better this time around as he was MVP of the whole camp.
As a junior Hasiak earned second-team all-state and all-Hawai'i (HM), which includes all schools and classifications in the Aloha State. He has already made the preseason all-state team for the coming season.
Besides offers from Cal, UCLA, and USC, the talented offensive lineman has offers from Arizona, Oregon, Oregon State, SMU and San Diego State. Hasiak thinks he just received an offer from Tennessee, but he hasn't talked to his coach about it yet.
