Tight end/linebacker Vic So’oto (6-3 ½, 210, 4.68) from Carlsbad, Calif., has had a great off-season impressing people at every camp that he has attended. So’oto blew up the BYU camp and was named Camp MVP for 2004 and he was the camp’s tight end MVP.
Though So’oto thoroughly enjoyed BYU’s camp he didn’t commit. There’s no reason to fret Cougar fans. BYU moved way up in So’oto’s eyes and are considered his leading school.
That’s not the only good news that has come So’oto’s way. When So’oto returned from his stellar performance at BYU, he had an offer waiting for from Wyoming.
Another school making a run for So’oto is Oregon State. The Beavers just received a verbal commitment from So’oto’s Carlsbad teammate quarterback Sean Canfield and the Beavers are now showing a lot of interest in So’oto.
As for So’oto’s decision it could happen tomorrow or on signing date.
So’oto was selected all-league as a junior after catching 17 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns from his tight end spot. As a linebacker, So’oto racked up 80 tackles and had one fumble recovery.
For the most part So’oto is being recruited as an athlete meaning he could end playing on either side of the ball. The way he has performed at the camps teams would be hard pressed not to play him at tight end.
