The Buena Park (Calif.) two-way lineman Josh Tupou continues to rack up the offers...
Josh Tupou Talks Offers and Visits
"I did visit Nevada last weekend and they offered me," Josh Tupou of Buena Park (Calif) High School told Inside Sparta. "I liked it, I liked the coaches and the campus. Right now they're my leader."
Colorado was the first offer for Tupou, followed by San Jose State. The SJSU staff will host the 6-foot-4, 302-pound Tupou the weekend of Dec. 3. Alabama State is his other offer, but he said he wasn't interested in traveling that far from home.
Tupou said the Wolfpack are the only school recruiting him for both sides of the ball. He plays offensive guard and defensive tackle, and didn't have a preference.
"I don't care where I play as long as I get to hit someone," he said.
While he may be a beast on the field, Tupou is a man of few words, letting his play do the talking. Offers from the Pac 12, Mountain West, and Western Athletic Conferences attest to that. The gentle giant said he's in no hurry to make his decision and while Nevada leads at this time, he's hoping to see a few more offers before making his decision.
It's possible Tupou could be part of a package deal. SJSU has also offered his teammate, offensive guard Oscar Barron.
"Oscar and I have talked a lot about going to school together," Tupou said. "Right now San Jose State is the only school that's offered both of us."
Buena Park finished the regular season 8-2 overall, 4-1 in the Freeway League of the CIF Southern Section. They begin playoff action on Friday against Foothill High from Santa Ana.
