"Romney had offers from schools like Penn State, Nebraska and Colorado, but we've always left the decision completely up to him and he feels that BYU is the best place for him. I'm happy that he's happy, I know he made the right decision for himself."
La mentioned that Penn State and other programs were willing to work with Romney's mission plans, but that her son just felt most comfortable at BYU. "He really loves the coaches there," she said. "He loves the people, the atmosphere and just everything. He's very excited and we're very excited for him."
