Sefo Liufau 6-4 220 Jr. QB
Bellarmine Prep (Tacoma) QB Sefo Liufau, one of the top signal-callers in the Pacific Northwest this year, received some good news on Monday when he received his first offer.
“Colorado offered me today,” an excited Liufau told Northwest Elite Index. “It didn’t really come out of the blue because I had been talking to their staff, getting to know them, for a quite a while.
“They said they liked what they saw on film of me and that they wanted to offer me a scholarship and that I had a place there to play football.
“It was exciting for me and a relief, but I didn’t think about committing and they didn’t put any pressure on me that I needed to commit or anything. No matter if I just get one or 20 more offers, I won’t commit right away. I want to take my time and see different schools and also make sure I am making the best decision for me.”
With his ideal size (6’4″, 220 pounds), above-average arm and good mobility, Liufau is an intriguing prospect who has been attracting attention from schools up and down the West Coast as well as some schools east of the Rockies.
“Right now I’m hearing from almost everyone on the West Coast and then sprinkle in a few from the Midwest too,” Liufau said. “Oregon, Oregon State and Washington State are the ones sending me the most stuff right now I’ve heard from schools like Duke and Alabama too.”
As the starter for the Lions the past two seasons, Liufau has led BP within a breath of the state championship game as a sophomore and had his team sitting atop the 4A rankings all season until they were upset in the second round of the state playoffs.
Liufau completed 58.2% of his passes as a sophomore in 2010, throwing for 2.526 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions and followed that up in 2011 with a solid junior campaign where he completed 60% of his passes for 2,253 yards with 23 touchdowns and only six interceptions while rushing for 249 yards and eight scores.
He is definitely a young man to keep an eye on over the months ahead and he said he plans to get out to as many camps, including Barton events, as possible now that his basketball season has concluded.
