"I just took time to go over my choices with my family," said Lutui, of Euless (TX) Trinity. "My parents and I have come down to my Top Three, which I want to focus on."
"USC will be January 20th, and Utah next week or very soon," added Lutui.
Lutui's sister, Line, noted the news of Neuheisel's firing was "sad," as her brother had grown close to the head coach the last several months.
"He doesn't know who will be next in line for coaching," she said.
Lutui spoke with Bruins' defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield this week. "He said he is still going to recruit me hard like if his job was secure, but no promises if he'll be there or not- depending on the new coach. He believes UCLA is still the best fit for me."
The 6'1, 270-pounder is ranked the top center in the Lone Star State- No. 3 in the nation.
