4-Star defensive lineman Aisea Moa de-committed from Utah last week, and confirmed to me that he will come to BYU on an unofficial visit this weekend to attend the BYU-Boise State game. Aisea is the son of former Utah player Ben Moa.
Moa is a consensus top 5 recruit in the state of Utah for the 2022 class and considered the top defensive line prospect in the state. He preps at Weber High School and is teammates with 2022 BYU commit Cannon DeVries.
Moa has stated that he intends to graduate early and enroll in college in January, meaning that he can participate in spring ball at his next school. BYU has a lot of momentum going its way and appears to be a strong contender for Moa. Miami and Oregon State are other schools to keep an eye on.
“BYU is a big possibility, I have been talking to all of their coaches this week,” Moa said. “It’s been crazy to see them this season and they’ve got a lot of good stuff going on right now. But I’m completely open right now. ... I’ll take my time with the process, but I want to be able to enroll somewhere early. The plan is to sign early in December.”
BYU’s 5-0 start and Big 12 inclusion are paying huge dividends on the recruiting trail. Moa would be the top-ranked recruit for BYU in the 2022 class and contend for immediate playing time as a true freshman in 2022.
So far this season, Moa has racked up 43 tackles, 5 sacks and 1 interception, according to Max Preps. Moa as played largely as an edge rusher.
