Decision Nears for Havili

Stanley Havili, was in Provo this weekend for an official recruiting visit. He was one of the uncommitted high school prospects to make the trip. TBS caught up with the Cottonwood High School running back to see how things went.

"The trip was awesome," Stanley Havili said. "I had a great time. On a scale of 1 to 10, the trip was a 10"

Fahu Tahi was Havili's host and Havili enjoyed his time with Cougar bruiser.

"We had a long conversation," Havili said. "It was nice because I knew a lot of the players."

Havili got to Provo Friday night, a little bit later then the other recruits because he had a basketball game earlier in the evening.

"I had a lot of fun snowmobiling," Havili said. "The Basketball game was also great."

Havili said he did not learn anything new about BYU, considering he has been there plenty of times before.

Havili sat down with Coach Bronco Mendhall and Coach Lance Reynolds. With scholarships quickly being accepted, the coaches were eager to know Havili's mind. "They put a little pressure on me." Havili said.

BYU is still in the picture for Havili's services. "Well, I took trip there, so obviously I'm still interested," Havili said.

Oregon is Havili's last visit and he hopes to decide shortly thereafter. He said the schools he visited are his top five. With USC still knocking on his door.

Another highlight of the trip for Havili was talking with James Lark and Mike Hague.

"Us three sat down and had a long talk," Havili said. "It was nice being able to talk with them. We didn't even talk football, we just chatted and had a good time."

Havili did admit that Hauge and Lark, jokingly tried to convince him to come to BYU, but it was all in good fun.

In a previous interview with Stanley TBS found out that Havili is searching for a particular feeling from a school while visiting. So did he get the feeling when he was at BYU?

"I haven't gotten that feeling yet," Havili said, "but it will be coming soon."
