Four months after signing a letter of intent to play football at Oregon State, former all-state fullback and linebacker at Kaiser high school Fitou Fisiiahi has opted not to attend OSU.
The 6’2″ 230 pounder will instead play rugby at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania. Fisiiahi is the very first recipient of the Cover 2 Ironman of the year award, and one of the most sought after recruits in the class of 2014.
The 2014 state champion says he was still planning on becoming a Beaver, when he re-assessed his options after exclusively playing rugby since the winter.
That’s when Fitou decided to take his talents to the Quaker State, as the one-time captain of team USA’s high school squad is fully committed to his first love.
