Florida linebacker interested in BYU

BYU just wrapped up the 2013 class, but the Cougar staff is already hard at work evaluating and recruiting next year's crop of talented football players. One such prospect hails from the Sunshine State, and he has BYU as one of his top schools of interest.

Although the 2013 class has been wrapped up, that doesn't mean the coaches at BYU haven't been hard at work scouting out the next crop of talented prospects to fill their future rosters. One such prospect has been located at Dr. Phillips High School in the great state of Florida.

That prospect is Lolomana'ia Wolfgramm, a 6-foot-1-inch, 220-pound middle linebacker.

"I had 70 tackles and I had around 10 or 11 for a loss and around four or five sacks," said Wofgramm I was mostly the pass-cover linebacker, so I didn't blitz as much."

A member of the LDS faith, and cousin of BYU 2012 linebacker commit Phillip Amone, Wolfgramm holds a lot of interest in BYU football.

"I'd like to go to BYU and that's one of my top choices for a college to go," said Wolfgramm. "I really like the school and I really like the environment. I just have a really good feeling about it. I'm going to work hard to try and get there if I can."

And BYU is showing interest in Wolfgramm. Coach Howell is the coach responsible for recruiting him.

"Oh man, he's great and he's a great coach," said Wolfgramm. "He's doing a great job of recruiting me and I really like Coach Howell. He's been showing me a lot of love all the way out here in Florida actually. Things are going good.

"He just told me that they saw my film and that I'm looking good and the film was great. They want me to come out there to camp and Junior Day. They said they would let me know all the details. I'm really excited about it because that's where I want to be."

Wolfgramm joins Brighton High School's Isaiah Kaufusi as potential linebackers for the 2014 class.

"They told me that they're looking at me and a few other players, so I have to work hard to get one of those spots," Wolfgramm said. "That's my goal. We gotta show everyone that the Wolfgramms can play ball out here."

So Wolfgramm will do just that and will fly out to Provo, Utah sometime this summer. While the Wolfgramm family is known more for their vocal talents as singers, Lolomana'ia intends on putting his hard-hitting exploits on display for college coaches.

"Yeah, I do plan on coming all the way out to Utah this year and show we can also play football, and that we're not just singers out here," he said with a laugh. "I plan on going to the Junior Days at BYU, Utah and Utah State. I want to come out there and check things out for sure. I think it will be a lot of fun and, like I said, I can't wait to get out there and check things out."
