ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Class of 2014 defensive tackle Ainuu Taua (Lompoc, Calif./Lompoc) took the long trip from the West Coast to compete in the 2013 Under Armour National Combine on Friday with the hopes of becoming a participant in the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game.
The 6-foot, 280-pound junior said he was happy with his performance, but said he probably could have done better.
“There were a couple of drills that I wish I could do over again,” Taua said. “But overall I thought I did well.
“One of the goals was to come here and get in front of the scouts so I can get an invite to the Under Armour Game. It’s such a great event and it has all the top players.”
Taua stayed for the game Friday night and talked more about his recruitment.
“I have a few offers out there and I’m hearing from UCLA, Washington and Cal the most right now,” Taua added. “I haven’t set any solid dates for visits yet but I’m going to get to a few places during the spring. I’ve been to UCLA a bunch of times and will probably go back a couple more.”
