Recruit Profile: Roman Pula

BYU is always in need of good defensive backs, and in two seasons there will also be need on the roster for running backs. Roman Pula is a junior athlete from the Pacific Northwest who could come in and help the Cougars at either spot.

BYU is not the only school taking a look at one of Tacoma, Washington's finest football players. Roman Pula is a 5-foot-11, 210-pound running back/safety from Lincoln High School who is already hearing from some of the best schools on the west coast.

"I'm basically hearing from all the Pac-10 schools, but mostly U-dub (Washington), Oregon, and Wasszu (Washington State)," said Pula.

Last year as a junior, Pula ran for 1,682 yards and scored 20 touchdowns, and on defense he had 75 tackles and three interceptions.

Pula, who is not LDS, received a few letters from BYU and has spoken to a coach.

"I'd consider BYU," Pula said "They're a good school and they play in really good conference."

Pula went on to say that Washington State has always been his childhood favorite, and he also likes University of Washington. This summer he will go to the Nike camp in Oregon and the team camp at Washington State.

Pula runs a 4.5 forty and has 32 inch vertical leap.
