JC offensive lineman Marc Pouvave just needed to see it for himself, and once he did, the big man out of Southern California knew that his original decision was the right one.
"It was great. I loved it out there. I'm definitely coming to Utah."
Pouvave had been wavering on his November commitment after coaches Norm Chow and Dave Schramm left for other jobs, taking a recent visit to hometown San Diego State, but his weekend in Utah brought him back to where his heart was all along.
"I had such a great time hanging out with the players and knew that this was the right place for me. I hung out with all the caucasian kids first, and then got to hang with all the islanders. It was awesome."
The 6-5, 315 pounder enjoyed his time with the coaches, but the amount of food he ate stood out quite a bit.
"They showed us the facilities and we met with coaches. We also ate at a lot of restaurants. There was a ton of food."
I spent time hanging out with Jeremiah (Valoaga). He said that he is going to come to Utah. I also was trying to convince a guy from Louisiana that everyone called D-Bone (Darion Monroe). I was telling him how great Utah is and that he should come here. He's really thinking about coming."
Pouvave was hosted by two fellow linemen in Joape Pela and Sam Brenner.
Pouvave will add depth to the offensive line and be able to compete for a starting spot once he reaches campus.
"I'm just going to keep working out and working hard so I'm ready to get when I get there in the summer>"
