Moala searching for three more visits

MORE: Eight unranked players gain four-star status

With two official visits already out of the way, it seems David Moala will have to wait until after the season to polish off his travel circuit.

The Cerritos (Calif.) Community College tackle has seen Hawaii and Houston already. His other two offers are from Kansas State and Cincinnati. Trips to those two schools remain on his agenda, but they've been pushed back.

"I was going to take my visit to Kansas State on my bye week on Oct. 5, but I can't go because they're away on that weekend," Moala said on Wednesday. "I might have to take my visit after my last game."

Moala's desire to visit K-State was born from the program's reputation. The fact that the Wildcat coaching staff is in frequent contact has helped, sure, but this is mostly about what he's observed.

"I watched Kansas State in years past," Moala said. "That's a good program. Last year they had a chance to compete for a national championship. They were the No. 1 school in the nation. They're not always good. They have their years where they are up and they have their years where they are down, but they have players that go to the league from Kansas State."

And so Moala will wait to get an up-close look. In the meantime, he'll play a little junior college football and see what happens on the scholarship front, all the while holding Oct. 5 as an open date for a possible campus visit should a new offer arrive. Other schools are interested in his services, but they want to see what happens in classroom.

"It's just the four offers right now because schools are waiting," Moala said. "Like Washington, they're waiting on my schoolwork. I have some schoolwork to take care of. That's what most teams are waiting for. It's coming along good so far. I should be passing everything this fall, so I should be good to go."

A full-term junior college enrollee, Moala doesn't plan to arrive at the school of his choice until next summer. Just which campus that might be, however, is extremely uncertain. Moala isn't naming favorites - not yet, anyway.

"They're all equally even," he said. "I haven't made a decision or really looked closely at some of my offers yet. I'm more focused on my schoolwork. Football will take care of itself."

Utah, Oregon State and Michigan State are all recruiting Moala but have not pulled the trigger on scholarship offers as of yet. The three-star prospect remains open to all comers for the time being.

"For me, any offer is great," Moala "Any place that is going to allow me to further my education is key. I'm just honored when anyone offers."
