Langi Names His Leader

The #1 running back in the west, Harvey Langi from Utah, talked to after he attended the Gridiron Kings event in Florida, naming his top school among his list of favorites...

Harvey Langi, the 6-2, 215-pound running back from South Jordan (Utah) Bingham, who has an impressive scholarship offer sheet right now that includes schools like Stanford, Utah, UCLA, BYU, Washington, and others, talked about what he's been up to this summer.

"I've been going to a few combines and on some unofficial visits and just training with my team," Langi said. "I went to Gridiron Kings down in Florida to represent the state of Utah. I've been up and down this coast and also took trips down to Florida and Miami."

Langi talked more about his trip to Miami.

"It was nice. I came down to check out the campus and got to do a combine down there," he said. "I liked it down there. There's a lot of competition. I like the speed they have and so it was a good experience. That was earlier and since then I've been seeing mostly West Coast schools and focusing on my team."

While the Canes received a visit earlier in the year, Langi hasn't been offered a scholarship by the Canes.

"The ones who I'm looking at the most have offered," he said. "They are Stanford, BYU, Utah, Washington and UCLA. Stanford, I like the education of course and thier campus is nice. Washington, their new coaching staff is nice and they have a bunch of young guys coming in. BYU, they run the ball a lot and it is a very nice school. UCLA, it's a great environment over there and with great coaches. Utah has moved to the Pac-10 making the Pac 12 so that has a good impact."

While he lists those five schools at the top, one jumps ahead of the rest and he talked about that.

"Stanford, I could go over there and play ball in the Pac-10 and get a good education. Plus the campus is amazing. They're on top."

Langi, who claims a 3.5 GPA and no test yet, talked about what he's looking for in a school.

"Just what I get out of it, where I am gonna be after I graduate at that school and of course education and experience I get out of it," he said.

The standout running back prospect said he has high expectations this fall.

"I wanna break over 2,000 rushing yards and figure out what college I am gonna go to," he said.
