Toma clears the air
There is no question that once UCLA offered three-star wide receiver Roby Toma (5-9, 160, 4.5) from Honolulu (Hawai'i) Punahou people started to get interested in a player, who was well known on the rock, but was getting very little play on the mainland. With that UCLA offer Toma was under the spotlight and he did not disappoint helping his team to win the state championship.
Toma was quickly asked to play in the inaugural Hawai'i versus the Mainland All-Star game and the future Bruin supplied most of the excitement for the Hawai'i offense and special teams.
Because of his performance against the Mainland, he was invited to the Under Armor All-American All-Star game and once again he did not disappoint. He ended up winning the best hands contest at the Under Armor game.
As Toma's stock kept getting hotter so did the rumors that he was going to change his pledge from UCLA to Utah. The Utes incidentally are riding high on the recruiting trail after dismantling Alabama in front of a surprised nation earlier in the month so the UCLA faithful were wondering once again if one of their recruits were having roving eyes.
"I heard about the rumor that I was going to Utah," Toma said. "But that never came out of my mouth.
"I first heard about it from parents," Toma said. "I talk to (Utah assistant coach) Kalani Sitake, who was my camp councilor at the Education First Camp."
