Correa takes first official visit to SDSU

The Aztecs hosted five linemen that hail from the Aloha State this past weekend.

Haku Correa was in the group.

The 6-foot-1, 265-pound defensive lineman from Honolulu (Hawaii) Damien Memorial has been a sack machine at the high school level.

He twice earned second-team all-state honors and is ranked by Rivals.com as the state's fifth best overall prospect from the Class of 2008.

"I just got back from the trip to San Diego State University, it was cold but it was good," Correa said of his first official visit.

Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Trask Iosefa, who played his high school football at Punahou in Honolulu, served as Correa's player host for the weekend.

What stood out to him about San Diego State and the Aztecs?

"The food is different there," Correa commented. "I got to see the Chargers' stadium. That is also where they play their games. I got to meet some different people. The climate was just different."

Correa said he was not tempted to commit on his trip to San Diego State. "I am just trying to wait it out," he said. "I have also been talking with Arizona and U of H. Arizona said I might take an official visit out there on January 18th but I don't have any visits set [in stone] as of right now."

Geordon Hanohano, Aaron Tipoti, JJ Autele and Solomon Koehler were the other prospects from Hawaii that visited San Diego State officially this past weekend.
