Rancho Cucamonga’s Chris Unga chooses Utah State

Rancho Cucamonga High School defensive lineman Chris Unga has decided to attend Utah State. He made that decision after visiting the past weekend.

He was also considering University of Hawaii and had a trip planned there but canceled that after coming back from Utah. Boise State also came into the picture late, visiting him at school on Monday after he had already made up his mind.

One of the biggest factors in the decision for Unga, the Inland Valley’s Defensive Player of the Year, was that the school was willing to wait for him to start his collegiate career. Unga is planning a Morman mission trip after graduation. He said some Division I schools backed off of him because of that.
