Steilacoom’s Leiato picks Oregon

Steilacoom safety Fotu Leiato on Sunday committed to play football for the University of Oregon.

Leiato was an unheralded recruit heading into his senior year but college coaches started taking notice of his hard-hitting abilities when his game highlights gained plenty of traction on the website Hudl — it had 497,871 views as of late Sunday. Leitao picked Oregon over Michigan State, Oklahoma, San Diego State, UCLA, and Washington State.

“He wanted to announce it in front of his family and friends so they had a big barbecue (Sunday night) and the Oregon coaches were there for it,” said Steilacoom defensive coordinator William Garrow. Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich, offensive coordinator Scott Frost, defensive coordinator Don Pellum and outside linebackers coach Erik Chinander were at Leiato’s house for the announcement.
