Sione Heimuli-Lund has received several offers, but the one that stood out Thursday was an offer from Stanford.
"It was awesome," Heimuli-Lund said in reaction to the news. "There
was no greater feeling."
Stanford has been called a dream school for the 2017 ILB/RB from
Salt Lake City. His reasoning is pretty simple, "It's
Heimuli-Lund weighs in at 6'0, 225-lbs. He is a 4-star recruit by
Scout. He says that his parents have always stressed the importance
of education growing up. That combined with a football style that
Heimuli-Lund has enjoyed from afar, made Stanford a dream for him.
The news came as he returned from a day at the beach. His high
school coach called him and said he should talk with Coach Lance
Anderson. the call was placed and after they talked for a few
minutes, Anderson made the offer.
"I lost it. I was so happy. i haven't been that happy in a long
time. I'm still in shock and disbelief but it is awesome."
Still a sophomore at Brighton High School, there is still a long
road ahead. Heimuli-Lund says he will be visiting the Oklahoma
schools and Michigan this spring. But he says he'll be camping with
Stanford this summer while he checks out some other California
schools. It will be his first trip to The Farm.
He seems to be racking up the offers with confirmed offers from at
least BYU, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Utah and Washington
Heimuli-Lund says he comes from a family that is a combo of geeks
and athleticism. The grades are important and his brother plays
lacrosse at BYU.
Heimuli-Lund says he loves to help people so in his future he'll be
looking into sports medicine and physical therapy. For now though
he'll concentrate on visiting schools, keeping those grades up and
improving his game.
"I feel the pressure but i should always have my grades up. I'll
continue to get good grades and score my best on all the tests."
