Three-star setting up visits

Moana Ofahengaue really has not focused on recruiting much but now that National Signing Day is only weeks away the three-star prospect from Lehi (Utah) Westlake said it's time to really get serious.
"There are a lot of people in the running now," Ofahengaue said. "I really have zero idea on what schools I'm going to decide on because I still have to take my trips. I probably won't be committing until National Signing Day."
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect who's being recruited as a hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker is expected to visit Arizona this weekend and then decide whether he'll go to Arkansas or Utah on Jan. 20.
Ofahengaue said at the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl that he would also like to see USC and Oregon but those trips have not been scheduled yet.
Since the Utah prospect is so green to the recruiting process he said no school is the favorite and that his upcoming visits are going to be important in his decision-making process.
"No one is the leader," Ofahengaue said. "I've just been trying to get through high school but now it caught up and I have to start thinking about college.
"It was just kind of there so I wanted to take advantage of the time I had in high school and then worry about it later. Now it's come to the point where I have to think about it and commit. I know it's going to be four years of my life so it has to be somewhere good."
In total, Ofahengaue lists offers from Arizona, Arizona State, BYU, Cal, Colorado, Florida State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon State, Utah, Utah State and Washington.
Rivals.com rates Ofahengaue as the No. 38 outside linebacker in the 2012 class and fifth in the Utah state rankings.
