      According to Rivals, He had offers from USC, Washington, Wisconson, and serveral others. Who knows if he will turn out, but the offers lead me to believe he has the talent to play in the Pac 12.

      Well he runs a 4.55 forty so that can’t hurt. The last Ute DE to be that fast was Orchard.

    Hmm… I wonder how long before zoob nation cries ‘Riley Nelson Rule’? They’re losing kids left and right to the Utes, won’t be long before more follow and possibly leaving to other school’s? Is this the “Kalani Effect” Monson was talking about? Hilarious.

      He signed but did not attend school like Riley did before his mission. So according to the NCAA bylaws the contract is null and void after a year.

    LOLz, just this summer the zoobs were crowing over post-mission flips to TDS, mostly guys coming back who found out their playing time would be limited at Utah, and declaring that Sitake had a lock on all the LDS polynesian guys!
