Honolulu, HI defensive end Lake Koa-Ka'ai has been taking visits recently to get his college decision finalized.

When looking at his list of final schools one thing that stands out with each school is an excellent defense. Jim Harbaugh recently left Stanford to pursue a career in the NFL and Koa-Ka'ai talked about that and his recent trip to the bay area.
