Offensive guard/defensive tackle Romney Fuga (6-2, 280, 5.0) from Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison has seen his stock take an upward turn of late has he has received his first offer.
The San Diego State Aztecs were ahead of the recruiting curve and were the first team to offer Fuga a scholarship.
BYU, Arizona, ASU, Washington, Washington State, Cal and Stanford are also very much in the hunt and recruiting Fuga hard.
BYU could be the team to beat for Fuga since he is a member of the LDS faith and that could play a part in his decision.
Fuga, more than likely, will take his LDS mission when turns 19 and because of their understanding of that circumstance will make BYU tough to beat.
It is important to convey that all schools that offer and allow Fuga the opportunity to do his missionary work will be considered.
Fuga will probably start to narrow things down by the middle part of his season and could start taking his trips at that time. He may wait until the season is over to start taking his visits.
"I want to go to a school with good academics," Fuga said. "The school will have to be solid in the classes that I major in."
"Also the school must have a good environment and a solid football program."
Fuga is a very thoughtful young man and plans to major for a profession where he can help people.
The scouting report on Fuga is he's a very tough customer and never stays down on himself for long. When he makes a mistake he doesn't hang his head, he just gets tough and comes right back at you.
Fuga is a member of the Rivals.com preseason California Top 100 for the class of 2006 and landed at the Golden State's 91 prospect at any position.
