And the rich keep getting richer as Utah picked up another commitment, this one from Texas defensive end Vili Levini.
"I just got off the phone with Coach Scalley. He was yelling and was so excited. The other coaches were all excited too. Coach Scalley is a great guy. He's the only coach I have a real strong relationship with at any school."
Levini's visit over the summer to Salt Lake City was an eye opening experience, and the visits to other campuses just didn't compare.
"After going out there on an unofficial visit over the summer, I really loved the place. I didn't have the same feelings for any of the other schools I visited. Utah was the place I've always wanted to go to Utah, but wanted to take my time and make sure it was the right choice. Utah is where I want to be."
Utah's education plan for their athletes and the emphasis on getting a degree ended up being a huge draw for Levini in making his final decision.
"I love how they take making sure that we all get education seriously and how they said they'd take care of me both on and off the field."
Levini still isn't done with visits and has plans to still visit Oklahoma State, Utah State, and Boise State along with the Utes, but says it won't affect his commitment.
"Utah said they're ok with me still going to check out some other schools. I just want to do it for the experience and to see some new places, but I'm 100% committed to Utah."
