You committed to the Utes about 2 months ago. Why did you choose Utah?
I've just been talking to them for awhile. For me I felt that was the best choice, the best opportunity I'm going to have is at the U.
Was there anything that stood out to you about the program?
Probably the coaching staff.
What did you think about Utah going to the Pac 10 ?
I committed before they went to the Pac 10 so it was just a bonus.
Will you be making an official visit at some point?
Yeah I will be as soon as my season comes around.
What other schools have offered you?
Washington State, Boise (St.), BYU, Utah State.
Is there anyone else you're talking to besides the schools that have offered you?
No, not really. Just those.
Are you planning any other visits?
Nope. Just Utah.
Are you playing just defensive tackle or on the O-line as well?
Just defensive tackle this year.
Bingham High has a big time program that is probably the best in the state this year with a ton of Division 1 caliber players. What are your team goals this year?
We have about 12 division 1 players. Hopefully we can win another state title, but we're planning on just taking it one game at a time.
You play alongside Harvey Langi, the number 1 running back in the west. What's it like playing with a player of his caliber?
Harvey's a pretty good kid. You know the reason his is probably one of the best is because he's one of the hardest workers out there.
What are your personal goals for this season?
I'm always going to do what I've got to do to get biggest, faster, and stronger and do whatever I can to do my best for my teammates.
