Four-star offensive tackle Xavier Su'a Filo (6-4, 285) from Provo (Utah) Timpview lived up to his reputation as one of the nation's best offensive line prospects. He has finished his five visits and according to his high school coach, Louis Wong, his talented offensive tackle prospect will make his college choice out of five schools. He just went on his final visit to UCLA.
"Xavier enjoyed his visit to UCLA," Wong said. "Now he has narrowed things down to BYU, Utah, LSU, UCLA and USC."
"Everybody has already been in his house," Wong said. "First it was BYU, then it was USC, LSU, UCLA and just last night, Utah was in his house."
"Xavier is beginning to feel pressure," Wong said. "We told him it is only going to get worse before it gets better."
"I think he's going to wait until letter-of-intent day," Wong said. "He's waiting on a couple of things. I'm not sure what those things are."
"I'm sure he will take his (LDS) mission," Wong said. "I'm not sure if he will play a year first and then go on his mission or not."
Early playing time may be something the young man is interested in.
"I think every freshman wants to play early in his career," Wong said. "He is going to look at the numbers and see where he fits in."
"Xavier will also be looking at the offensive line coach," Wong said. "He wants to play for a coach who can develop him to his fullest potential. He also wants to be able to compete on a national level and on a top 10 team, perhaps to play on a national championship team."
