Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is loaded with talented prospects this recruiting cycle and one that cannot be overlooked is inside linebacker Viliami Latu.
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound prospect already has offers from Boise State, Hawaii and Fresno State and he said UCLA, USC and pretty much the rest of the Pac-12 is also showing early interest.
Playing at such a high-profile school has also helped his recruitment because Latu is only one of many top prospects at Rancho Cucamonga. His brother, A.J. Latu, along with four-star defensive backs Tahaan Goodman and Chris Hawkins already have offers as well.
So far, Latu is taking his time with recruiting. He has not taken any unofficial visits yet but plans to in the coming months.
"It's going pretty well," Latu said. "I have a year left so it will come.
"If they're going to come see Tahaan or anybody else on our team then maybe a coach will notice me, too.
"I have to worry about the next season and focus on how things are going to go. I have a whole year left so I'm not worried too much about recruiting right now."
A.J. Latu has been offered by Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon State and Washington State and the brothers plan to play together in college. With many Pac-12 schools showing interest in Latu, he said there's a good chance that could happen.
"We've been talking about that with our family," Latu said.
"We're planning to play with each other in college. We want to. It's like that twin brother love. We want to go to the same school and we want to experience things together. Plus, our parents want us to be together so they won't have to separate and watch different games."
