Defensive tackle Semisi Tokolahi (6-3, 290, 4.9) from Hilo, Hawai'i is racking up the frequent flyer miles with his busy schedule this January. He just returned from Oregon State and he previously visited to Washington State. He has another visit scheduled for Washington this coming weekend.
"Things are going great for me," Tokolahi said. "I just got back from Oregon State and it was great."
"I liked the players and how they were bonded like family," Tokolahi said. "All of Oregon State's coaches are cool."
"Though I enjoyed myself at Oregon State," Tokolahi said. "I did not commit, I still have my commit to UDub. I will take my trip to Washington this weekend."
"I took a visit to Washington State earlier and it was great, too," Tokolahi said. "I like a lot of the same things about Washington State that I liked about Oregon State."
Tokolahi has a visit opening up for January 30th since Colorado, where he was scheduled to visit filled up at his position.
Baylor and Arizona are picking up their interest in Tokolahi. The Wildcats have tendered an offer.
Defensive tackles are always in short supply and when you add into the equation his tremendous upside you understand why he getting so much attention. Tokolahi is a player whose best football is still ahead of him.
Tokolahi earned Area Defensive Player of the Year and was a second-team all-state performer as a senior after accounting for approximately 99 tackles, 11-plus sacks, four blocked field goals, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. On his fumble recovery, he scored a touchdown.
