Laiu is from Euless, Texas. Scout reported on Oct. 24 the following:
Moeakiola is a big-bodied safety who will come in and put his hat in on many tackles. He is not afraid to come in full steam and lay the wood. He is the perfect candidate to play that 'rover' type of position in college or he could possibly even grow in to a linebacker in time. He is able to manhandle many of the ball carriers in high school, but needs to keep working hard to wrap up more consistently. Stats: 6 foot 195 lbs Does 40 yard dash in 4.5 seconds
Welcome, the Bruins need you.
UPDATE (N): From the LA Times:
"Over the weekend, I was praying with my family, looking over the colleges to see which one was the best fit," Moeakiola said. "UCLA has the academic excellence, the location is great and I have plenty of family out there for support."
Moeakiola, who is 6 feet and 185 pounds, had 108 tackles and intercepted one pass last season.
