Tavita was set to leave for Arizona on Thusday but that same day he got the news that his Great Aunt had died. So his family had to take care of many things and he wanted to be a part of it. He is unsure now if he will make the trek to Tucson next weekend.
"My family might still need me around to help out with things so we'll see. I called the Arizona coach to let him know what had happened and he understood."
Arizona is recruiting him for the defensive line.
Tavita says that the Colorado coaches spoke with him last week and were pleased to hear that he wasn't making the weekend visit to Arizona while at the same time expressing their sympathies for his loss.
So where do the Buffs stand with him now?
"I am still committed to Colorado."
While saying this Tavita still admits that,"Oregon State still looks good. Those are really the two I am looking at but I am leaning towards Colorado."
Utah appears to now be out of the picture.
"I think I would rather play in the Pac Ten or the Big Twelve."
Thompson had visited Salt Lake City in mid-December and went to Oregon State the weekend of January 9th.
Coach Borbely and Coach Cabral from Colorado will be in Tavita's home on Wednesday night. He said he would fill Buff Country in later this week if he does decide to take the Arizona visit.
