Kahuku quarterback Tuli Wily-Matagi is preparing himself for life after high school, but it sounds like he may be considering a different destination.
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound senior is an early commit to Utah. In the fall, Wily-Matagi said Utah was looking at him as a tight end. Lately, however, he reportedly is being groomed to play defensive end by the Utes.
Scout.com reported on Monday that Wily-Matagi enjoyed a recent trip to Colorado, and that Washington State and Wisconsin are also possibilities. He visited Colorado along with Kamehameha standout Mika Tafua.
A visit to WSU is coming next. In the Scout.com story, Wily-Matagi noted that his mother lives in Washington.
The connection to Wisconsin is former Baldwin head coach Chad Kauha’aha’a, who is in his second year as defensive line coach.
