    This is the guy I thought would be perfect for us a year ago.. I was bummed when he committed to UDUB. Good stuff..

    But knowing Petersen and coach K..they will be all over him when he returns from his trip. This is a long shot.

    sounds like Nansen is gonna pull a really outstanding group of poly players for us if things go right

    Pola-Mao, Tufele, Tuipulotu, Tagovailoa-Amosa, Falaniko, Katoa, Neilon

    Washington is very good public university in a great, albeit rainy, city. Washington, however, is no USC. This young man needs to give Troy a long, hard look.

    supposedly he cancelled on a meeting with coach K as well, looks like USC could pull the flip
    would be a huge addition for us

    Oh, he's an early enrollee? Does anyone know if he would still be allowed to enroll at USC for the Spring semester or has the deadline passed?

    Knowing how important family is to the poly community, Helton's Faith, Family, and Football philosophy may be resonating within the poly community. Especially, after seeing how Stevie T thrived at USC

    The UW board is absolutely freaking out. It's comical. Has to be too good to be true at this point.

    How great would it be to get this kid? Isn't he a Float legacy? Not only will Oregon not sign him, but they'll lose him to either us or the Dawgs. Awesome.

    Still think it's too good to be true but man him and Tufele would be an AMAZING duo at DT going forward. You can't not smile at that.

    Best case scenario here with 7 slots left.

    Jody Lewis
    Greg Johnson
    Jay Tufele
    Marlon T.
    Austin Jackson
    Isaiah Pola-Mao
    Levi Jones/Solomon/Falo?

    'Man that would be a Kaboom, trying not to get my hopes up but let's keep the good vibes going.

    Could this be the reason Pili is all of a sudden trending to the Beavers? I told you guys a while back that SC always gets a late flip and at least 2/3 commitments no one sees coming. Hoping for the best, but will expect the least, until LOIs are signed

    Can still be an EE, USC started classes Jan9, but had one holiday since then (MLK day). As of today (jan20) he can still enroll, plus get strong academic assist/support to catch up. I believe their a couple of late enrollees in past years

    Tufele & Tuipulotu seem to have a friend ship, and they both have a real opportunity to play together and start early on for this team.

    As Freshmen they will both get plenty of playing time, but as Sophomores they both have a great shot of starting next to eachother.

    Question is can this staff emphasize that enough to them.

    I wonder what turned the light on for Marlon to say hey I'm going to go on this visit to USC this upcoming weekend, and if we find that it might give us good insight on how this might go down.

    Those 2 with Amosa would give us some guys quality guys and depth at our weakest spot, and an especially weak spot in next class out west from the looks of things.

    Tufele, Tuipulou, Amosa, Echols, and Lang would be huge and allow us to focus on the bread and butter in next years class which is skill positions. Especially if you consider us landing Austin Jackson and the rest of the recruits from this class stick.

    Could be building blocks for years to come IMO.

    Washington's insider on TOS-247 said USC did something unethical but legal to get Marlon.

    Another Washington insider said Nansen got in with his brother.

    Then, I went to another forum where a user claimed that we supposedly offered his brother a job.

    No idea if it is true.

    If he visits it's a wrap, I'm sure Washington have a no visit policy to committed guys.

    After this weekend we could have tufele and him, plus Solomon is down to Michigan and SC. looking very good right now could be top 5

    If we can land Tufele and Tui, perhaps CP will have to change up his defense to more down lineman to take advantage?

    Could you imagine a line of Tui/Fehoko/Tufele and Greene in '18? OK...getting ahead of myself.

    So to summarize what I'm reading on the interwebs:

    1. Johnny Nansen has been working this hard for some time, and finally got Marlin and his family to consider re-opening his recruitment. This happened a couple of weeks ago, but the family wanted to keep it on the down low. Tuipulotu is THE monster d-line recruit in this class. Great work, coach Nansen.

    2. Chris Peterson has a no-visit policy once you've given him a verbal. Obviously, Tuipulotu (hereafter Tui) has been a verbal for months and months, so this is clearly against their policy. Will Pete pull his scholarship? If he wants to keep things consistent, he will . . . but players like this don't come along very often.

    3. The U-Dub coach who was responsible for him, Ikaika Malloe was in Hawaii this past week when he heard that Tui was waffling. So Malloe jumped on the first plane back to Oregon to try to shore things up. I think that happened on Tuesday. Apparently, the family stiff-armed him and didn't want to talk with him. Word is that he left Oregon to go back to to Seattle without actually talking to Marlin. NOT a good sign for U-Dub.

    4. Tui bonded with Jay Tufele at the Army game, and now the two of them are wanting to play together. Jay was been rumored to be a Ohio State lean, and now a Utah lean . . . but bringing Tui into the picture and offering them the chance at immortality at USC . . . this is a whole new development. Could this be a two-for-one package deal?

    5. The other big rumor is that Tui has a brother that needs work, and the Washington fans are saying that Coach Helton is working to find him a job down here somewhere, perhaps even in the athletic department. They are screaming "Unethical". Or savvy . . . just depends upon your perspective. Other schools do this all the time. This brother-angle was the opening that Coach Nansen used to get in with the family.

    6. Of all the weekends to get the biggest rainstorm in years, this is the weekend. OK -- we'll deal with it. Hopefully there will be some sun out tomorrow and the guys will be able to get out there on the Coliseum turf and run around a bit.

    7. There is some scuttlebutt about Tui wanting to enroll early, which makes this weekend all the more crazy as classes have already started, and he's not officially graduated from High School yet. But if they could work out the details, apparently he could still get into classes this week, perhaps as early as Monday.


    If any or some or most of the above is true, this would be the biggest story of the recruiting cycle, and arguably the biggest recruit we bring in with this class in a position of desperate need.

    Fight on Marvin and Jay! Hope your weekend is amazing.

    So can this go from us being scared we were going to get left in the dust at this position to us turning players like Amosa away?

    If we can land Tufele, Tuipulotu, Fehoko, Lang, Echols, Lichenstein, and if somehow we can get DJ Johnson.

    Per the Husky forums, Tui has apparently taken down all his photos with Husky players off Instagram and Twitter.
    I checked Instagram and indeed there are no UDUB pics.

    You read that kind of stuff and the fact that he wouldn't meet with his position coach (or at least the guy who was promised to be his position coach for the past 6 months or so) and you've got to wonder, what did U-Dub do to piss him off so much?

    This couldn't have just happened over night. There was something brewing there under the surface for some time. There is more to this story than meets the eye. I hope we can sign him, and then I look forward to hearing the real story of how this whole thing went down.

    Praying SC seals the deal & our DL gets major building blocks. Sounds like our staff may reel quite a class. Weather is clearing up Saturday so Coli experience will be good.

    Looks like Marlon Tuipulotu is no longer consider a commit @ UDUB. He is not listed on their commit list any more; he was last week. Looks like his offer was pulled... See the link below.

    I'm excited as everyone, but cautious. Until he and Tufele signs, I'm not celebrating. Just got to wait it out, but these recent, inside news are exciting.

    Remember that Chris Peterson kicked Marcus Peters off his team mid-season. He is not a guy to make exceptions. It works very well for him.

    My understanding is he has already graduated from HS. Enrolling in March at UW or Jan at USC, would not be an issue if he has already graduated, If not, then March admission at UW would not matter either. Independence OR (Central HS) semester ended Dec 16th 2016

    I thought someone said that Tuipulotu removed everything related to Washington from his Twitter? I see his profile still says University of Washington commit and that his pinned tweet is his commitment to Washington...

    There's still a ton of UW stuff on his Twitter, so that's not true. https://twitter.com/marlont_51

    Most recent; '#purplereign' on New Year's Eve.
