Thor Pili, a 6-5, 240-pound defensive end/linebacker from Timpanogos High School, told TBS Thursday night that Oregon and Utah remain his frontrunners right now.

"I wasn't planning to make the trip to BYU, but I decided to after talking to the coaches."

Pili noted the two head coaches from Oregon and Utah visited him and his parents at home this week.
