ANOTHER VERBAL COMMIT: Beavs land JUCO DL
Moala logged 39 tackles, six sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery for CSM this past season, leading to First-Team All-League and Honorable Mention All-State honors. The Beavers were paying attention, and offered Moala a scholarship and an official visit to Corvallis this past weekend.
"I went up there with my Dad," Moala said. "Everything was great - the coaching staff, the facilities, the players...I met a bunch of them and the chemistry was right there from the first day.
"I had two trips still set up, to Hawaii and Texas State - but after going to Oregon State, I'm not going to visit those schools. I'm going to get my chance to play with the big boys."
Moala will have three years to play two starting in the fall of 2007.
Before his visit to OSU, he had been leaning toward San Jose State and Hawaii, but a conversation he had with his father changed things.
"He told me that I could always come home," he said. "And once I visited Oregon State, I knew it was a place I could be comfortable away from home."
