Millville (Utah) Ridgeline outside linebacker Levani Damuni was one of the 15 visitors on Stanford’s campus last weekend.
Along with defensive end Ryan Johnson, linebacker Leonard Walker, athlete Connor Wedington, defensive tackle Dalyn Wade-Perry and athlete Paulson Adebo as the undecided recruits on the trip, Damuni took in everything Stanford can offer, from meeting Condoleezza Rice to going to Facebook headquarters.
Wade-Perry and Adebo have since committed to the Cardinal, and Stanford is hoping Damuni can be next.
Did they make an impression?
“Definitely,” Damuni said. “I feel comfortable there, I did on all my trips. I just need to pray on it over the next couple of days.”
Stanford gave their visitors the opportunity to meet with coaches, learned about the strength and conditioning program and had one-on-one time with Stanford professors.
“What surprised me the most was probably when all the professors were talking about all their different subjects,” Damuni said. “Every professor went up, and whether it was biology or architecture, everyone was saying their program was #1 in the nation.”
It is down to Stanford, Utah and Virginia for the Damuni, who will be taking a two-year LDS mission after completing high school.
“I will definitely be thinking about everything,” Damuni said. “Just mainly I'll be talking to other coaches and the coaches of my top couple schools and let them know my decision.”
Damuni will be announcing his decision at the Polynesian Bowl on January 21st.
The Polynesian Bowl is a collection of the world’s top high school players of Polynesian decent.
“It's an honor that I was chosen for it to be one of the top guys that they chose,” Damuni said. “I'm excited to represent my family, my culture, my state, my school.”
