Stanley Havili the 6'1", 215-pound, running back from Cottonwood high school recently returned from a trip to Arizona State and has them at the top of his list. He also has a trip to Iowa planned for Oct. 22nd to see them play Michigan which he is excited about. But BYU is not fitting into his college plans.
"When I went to junior day at BYU this summer I had a strong feeling that BYU was where I wanted to go," Havili said. "I'm a big BYU fan, but after watching the football team this season, I've decided that their offense isn't the type of offense I want to play in. The running backs at BYU get a lot of touches, that's not the issue. I just don't think their offense is for me. I really like coach Anea and the coaches there but that's not the problem."
Stanley went onto to say that BYU's record this year has nothing to do with his decision.
"I would have loved to play with Mike Hauge, McKay Jacobsen, and James Lark," Havili said. "They are great players. In fact I told Hauge he is the best running back in the state. He is just a stud. And I wish them the best of luck."
Havili also mentioned that his first cousin plays D-line at cottonwood. Simi Fili the big nose tackle has been double and tripled team all year and should be a D-1 prospect.
"My cousin is going to go where ever I go," Havili said. "I'm going to look after him."
Stanley also said that his other cousin Tony Moeaki the 5-star tight end at Iowa loves it out there and plans to play four years straight instead of taking a mission.
