Carlsbad (Calif.) tight end Vic So’ototraveled all the way to Baltimore for his season opener which the Lancers won 35-26 over a very talented Brooklyn Prep (N.Y) team. On the recruiting front, So’oto has a solid leader and will take his first official visit in two weeks.
So’oto, 6-4, 220 pounds is one of the elite tight ends in the West region and has a very nice upside. He runs very well, has good hands and is athletic. We’ve heard some schools say they’re worried about So’oto’s narrow frame, but like most Polynesian’s, So’oto is not even close to physically maturing and should have no problems putting on weight in college.
“It’s in my genes, I’ll get a lot bigger in a few years,” So’oto said. “Right now, I’m enjoying our season and that’s where my focus is. I’ll worry about recruiting towards the end of the year but things are going well right now.”
Since the first of the month, So’oto has received calls from USC, UCLA, BYU, Washington and Arizona.
“Of that group, BYU and Arizona have offered,” So’oto said. “I also have offers from Utah, San Diego State, Wyoming and UTEP. BYU is my top school, I’m very interested in them right now and will take an official visit there (Sept. 17). They’re playing USC that weekend so it should be a crazy atmosphere. I’m also looking to visit Arizona, those are my two right now since both have offered and also because I like how both use the tight end.”
In the season opener, So’oto caught four balls for 90 yards and added 10 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery at linebacker.
