Optimal Sports Management is excited to announce that linebacker Naki Tuakoi has joined us! Tuakoi is a part of the 2024 recruiting class and has over 17 offers from schools nationwide.
The Oakland, CA, native is a 4-star linebacker at 6’3 and 220 lbs and has been seriously connected to various programs as his recruitment heats up. In addition to Notre Dame, Tuakoi has been looking at top-tier programs such as USC, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Utah, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
Notre Dame defensive coordinator, Al Golden, is determined that Tuakoi is a vital key to improving their defense. Notre Dame has been incredibly welcoming to him and would be an excellent fit for his college career.
Naki had his first visit with USC head coach Lincoln Riley last week. USC wants to continue the strength of its linebacker room, which is the most substantial part of its defense.
Tuakoi has been ranked the 24th-best linebacker and the 35th-best overall player in the 2024 class in California.
Naki will have some big decisions to make as he begins his season come fall time.
Optimal Sports is looking forward to supporting Tuakoi in his decision and college career in the future!
