SMU in Utah RB's Isi Sofele's top two

With one official visit down and another one to go, SMU appears to be in the top two for the services of Utah running back Isi Sofele. Sofele has already taken an official visit to Washington State and confirmed Sunday night that he will be taking an official visit to the Hilltop on December 2.

With one official visit down and another one to go, SMU appears to be in the top two for the services of Utah running back Isi Sofele.

Sofele has already taken an official visit to Washington State and confirmed Sunday night that he will be taking an official visit to the Hilltop on December 2.

Where does SMU stand for Sofele's services?

"SMU is one of my top two favorites," Sofele said. "I will end up going to one of those two schools."

Sofele currently has nine official offers from schools including Washington State, SMU, Washington, UCLA, Air Force, Utah, UNLV, UConn, and Oregon State.

According to Sofele SMU has continued to recruit him very hard.

"They tell me all the time how much they need me," Sofele said. "I talk to their coaches a lot, they feel that I can come in and add an immediate speed element to their game."

The 5-foot-7, 175-pound athlete has been clocked this fall at a 4.3 forty.

"They like my speed a lot," the Scout.com three star prospect said. "They think I can come in and play right a way, the same way with Washington State."

There appears to be one major difference between SMU and Washington State.

"Washington State is in such a small town, I was surprised," Sofele said. "I'm more of a city boy, so SMU probably has the advantage there."

Sofele took an unofficial visit to SMU over the summer and really was impressed with the campus and coaches.

"I really like SMU a lot," Sofele said. "I had a great unofficial visit there earlier in the year. I really like their coaching staff; I would love to play for June Jones."

Sofele plans on making his decision after his official visit to SMU.

"I will make a decision shortly after that trip," Sofele said. "I just want to make sure I make the right decision and go the program that fits me the best."

SMU loses two senior running backs with the graduation of DeMyron Martin and Andrew McKinney, leaving the running back position a need area.
