Local lineman prospect Keaton Bills discusses his visit to Utah

Corner Canyon (UT) prospect Keaton Bills will decided between Utah and BYU

by Andrew Gorringe

Corner Canyon High School defensive tackle Keaton Bills is one of the states most unheralded and quietest recruits in recent memory. The 6'5-275lb senior stays off social media and also doesn't do many interviews, but he's one of most talented and desired recruits left in the state of Utah. From a physical standpoint, Bills may be the most college ready prospect from Utah in the 2016 class, but will put off enrolling in college as he serves a two year LDS mission straight out of high school. 
Over the past two years Bills has pulled in 12 offers, including half a dozen from the PAC 12. With signing day just 2 days away though, Bills is focused in on the two major in state schools, as Utah or BYU will  be the school of his choice. 
Bills was able to visit the two schools the past two weekends, and was able to take in a lot that will help his decision. "The (Utah) visit was fun! I had a great time. The coaches truly made me feel like family and it was just a great time." Bills' main recruiter throughout the process has been Utah's defensive coordinator Morgan Scallie and he's built up a good relationship with him. "Its great! Truly became a friendship".
Bills also visited BYU this past weekend, and had a great experience down in Provo. "It was really awesome. It is a very unique setting and environment! I had a great time there and connected well with the other recruits." With BYU heading into the 2016 season with a new coaching staff, there has been a transition with some of their recruits, but Bills' main point of contact has remained the same, as defensive line coach Steve Kaufusi remained on staff. 
Both schools are recruiting Bills as a defensive tackle, and the three star prospect will be making his final decision either Monday or Tuesday this week. With Bills not being active on social media, it's going to be a quiet end to the recruiting process for him, as he'll fax in his NLI on Wednesday morning without any announcement. As for what factors will play into his decision, Bills is keeping it simple. "Just what i feel in my heart."
