South Jordan (Utah) Bingham running back Harvey Langi (6-2, 215) is the top prospect in the Beehive State in 2011's class, and his racking up offers from programs all over the West.

"I've got offers from BYU, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Stanford, UCLA and Washington," said Langi. "I might have more too. I have a lot of other letters and I haven't opened all the rest so I have a lot of schools that are interest. I'm just waiting for a while."

Langi said there is no clear leader for his services, that he's taking a more deliberate approach to his recruitment.

"I don't really have a favorite right now, I just want to go and check out the schools and stuff and make sure on the school I'll represent," said Langi. "Whenever that time comes to commit, I'll decide."

Langi has been to BYU, Utah and Washington unofficially and is planning to visit UCLA and Oregon in the spring or summer.

"I'm planning on going out to some more Junior Days, combines and camps and some more unofficial visits all across the country," said Langi. "I know my choice will be a good choice, but I want to make sure I can see all of my options first."

Langi said he's being heavily recruited by schools outside of Utah, but is getting the full court press from the in-state programs, particularly BYU.

"I'm very open to leaving the state, if there is the right school for me outside of the state but there is some pressure to stay in state," said Langi. "All of my close friends go to BYU and a lot of Bingham players go to the Y (BYU). BYU is recruiting me the hardest."

Langi was humbled by the notation as Utah's top prospect.

"When I hear I'm the top player, all I think of is my line," said Langi. "They are the ones who got me to this point. It's not me who is number one, it's all of them, they are number one. They do all the work, I just get the credit. I wouldn't do anything without my line."

Langi did plenty last fall for Bingham, rushing for 1,514 yards and 21 touchdowns and catching 18 passes for 317 yards and scoring four more touchdowns through the air.

A stellar student, Langi is carrying a 3.7 GPA and is set to take the ACT and SAT this spring.
