SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah football received a verbal commitment from an in-state star in four-star athlete Aisea Moa from Weber High School.

Aisea Moa is a 4-star athlete (247Sports) from Weber High School in Ogden, Utah. He is a part of the 2022 recruiting class and is ranked No. 4 in the state of Utah and the 37th athlete in the country.

Aisea is the son of former Utah star tight end Ben Moa. The in-state athlete told KSL Sports why he chose Utah.

“I chose Utah because I felt like it was the best fit for me and where I belong! I want to carry on my Dad’s legacy and bring home the Pac-12 championship,” Moa said.

The Weber High School star announced his commitment to the Utes via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

“First off I want to thank my Heavenly Father, and my parents for guiding me,” Moa wrote. “I want to thank TipTop and BeastLine for how much time and training they have put into me to make me the athlete I am today. I would like to thank Level Up for all the years that they have let me play with them and all the exposure that they have helped me get from playing on the big stages! With that being said I’d like to announce that I’m committed to the University of Utah.”

Other than Utah, Moa received scholarship offers from BYU and Utah State. The plan for Moa is to play defensive end for the Utes. Utah football now has two commitments from the 2022 class with Moa and quarterback JP Zamora from Pasco, Washington as a three-star prospect.
