Wheaton South (Ill.) four star ranked tight end prospect Anthony Moeaki (6-foot-4, 250 pounds) wrapped up his team camp and summer events late last week, and Moeaki has been hitting the West Coast this week checking out several West Coast schools.
“Things have gone pretty well this week," Anthony Moeaki said. “I've been able to spend some quality time with my brothers, and I've also been able to check out several schools in person as well."
Moeaki started his West Coast swing at Brigham Young.
"I made an unofficial visit to Brigham Young earlier this week. I was able to sit down with the coaches at BYU and I was able to get to talk with them at length. I also had a really long conversation with head coach Gary Crowton. The visit overall went really well, and I'm very familiar with the BYU program since my brother (Larry) played there."
Moeaki then moved his visits to California.
"I went and made a stop in at USC. I was able to take a full tour of the campus as well as the facilities, then I went to the football offices. I talked to several coaches at USC about the program and what my role would be if I played for the Trojans. I also sat and talked with head coach Pete Carroll for 40-45 minutes. We basically talked about a bunch of different things, and I really enjoyed visiting with him, and I also appreciated him taking some time to talk with me at length. Overall I was pretty impressed with everything at USC, and the coaches were just great to talk with as well."
"After the USC visit, we tried to get to UCLA, but it was really late and the coaches had already left for the day. My brothers and I just took our own tour of the campus and checked out some of the facilities, and the campus was really nice. I felt bad that we didn't have as much time to really check things out at UCLA, but I liked what I was able to see of the campus and the facilities."
Today, Moeaki was in Eugene, Oregon checking out the University of Oregon.
"I spent the morning checking out the campus as well as the facilities. Oregon has just incredible facilities, one of the best I've seen so far. The locker room is just sick, and I mean that in the best possible way. I was really impressed with what the players at Oregon have to work with, they have everything you'd ever want from a facility standpoint. The stadium is great, and you can't help but be impressed with the layout at Oregon. I also had a chance to visit with the coaches at Oregon, and I enjoyed getting to know the coaches on my visit. I was really glad that I was able to check out Oregon in person this summer."
Moeaki is planning to stay out West for an extended stay.
"We really are done with my team camp and responsibilities this summer, so I'm going to stay with my brother for a little while. I'm going to be working out and staying in shape for the season while I'm staying with him."
"I'm really glad that I had a chance to see these schools up close and in person this summer. I'm going to take all of these visits into consideration, then hopefully I'll start to narrow things down soon. I'm really in no rush to make any decisions at this point or to eliminate any schools, but I'm in the process of narrowing my favorites now."
