The 3-star linebacker had been hopeful for an offer from the Cardinal for a long time and finally got it.

Could Stanford continue their pipeline to Utah with a commit from the linebacker?

Millville Ridgeline (Utah) linebacker Levani Damuni biggest strength is his versatility. 

I can play in middle back or I can play outside backer, I can play running back to you,” the 3-star recruit said. “I like to help out where I can.” 

Stanford was a team he had always had his eye on. He said defensive coordinator Lance Anderson would communicate with him regularly, and he was very impressed when he visited The Farm in May.

“We had been keeping in touch pretty much every week since the football season started,” Damuni said.

In late November, the Cardinal presented that offer the linebacker coveted.

With that offer, the Cardinal catapulted themselves into Damuni’s top four with Utah, Utah State and Virginia.

Damuni said he likes the close proximity Utah has, and he is very familiar with the coaches in Salt Lake City. His father is actually the director of football operations and assistant athletic director at Utah State, so there is also a familiarity there. Damuni has the connection to Virginia back when much of that coaching staff was at BYU, led by Bronco Mendenhall.

He does plan to go on an LDS mission starting this June. He is also good friends with 2016 Cardinal commit Simi Fehoko and class of 2017 pledge Sione Lund.

Damuni said he plans to commit close to Signing Day.
