Schedule change for 4-star Beaver target
"It was supposed to be on the 16th of this month but I had to reschedule it," said Tuihalamaka, who has offers from OSU, UA and Iowa State. Oregon State just recently offered the 'backer, about a week and a half ago.
Already having offered Vuna's cousin Apaiata Tuihalamaka, Arizona head coach Mike Stoops put an offer on the table to Vuna last week during an in-home visit. Tuihalamaka will visit Arizona next week and the Wildcats are making a strong push.
Tuihalamaka said Oregon State and Arizona are co-leaders. On Arizona, he said he likes the way they play defense while for the 'Linebacker U', assistant coach Greg Newhouse is a draw.
"I really like their linebackers coach," said Tuihalamaka of OSU.
Tuihalamaka said he wasn't anticipating any in-home visits this week, nor does he have a frontrunner out of the two.
"No, I haven't really had time to (focus) on recruiting with my season going on," he said.
WHAT A SEASON it's been for the player who went unsigned coming out of California's Hawthorne High.
Tuihalamaka and El Camino (11-2) take on CCSF in the California State JC title game this weekend, and the linebacker's season tackle stats look more like a career list -- he's racked up 146 tackles, including 14.5 for loss in 13 games.
Other '06 season numbers for Tuihalamaka include six forced fumbles, eight QB hurries, three sacks, four pass break ups, three fumble recoveries, one interception and a blocked kick.
Tuihalamaka has 3-to-play-2 at the next level and said he is on pace for earning his AA degree in the spring.
