Utah's Harvey Langi enjoys visit to Montlake

One of the top 2011 prep running backs in the west visited Montlake the last weekend of January and came away impressed with what he saw. Bingham's (South Jordan, Ut.) Harvey Langi is a big-time prospect who already has five offers to his name and after his visit he came away with the impression that a Husky offer could be on the way as well...

"Oh man, it was a great visit," Langi told Dawgman.com shortly after his trip. "I mean, just to get to see the program up close and to sit down and talk with the coaches and really get to know them, it was just a great time for me and my family."

Langi attended Washington's men's basketball game where the Huskies faced off against Washington State at Hec Ed and then spoke with the coaches about where they stand with their offers and where he ranks on their board.

"They said the haven't put a lot of offers out to backs yet and that I'm high on their list, but they are still evaluating players," Langi said. "I just liked what was going on with their program and how they are building it for the future. I was definitely interested in them so I decided to come up and visit and see the program up close.

"I also have some family in the area so that makes it that much better."

Washington didn't make an offer to the big, physical running back, but he does have offers from Stanford, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and BYU.

"They didn't say it, but I think they are close to offering me," Langi said of a possible Husky offer. "They said they like me as a big-back who could play in a one-back scheme like they use."

Last season, Langi put up huge numbers for a Bingahm team that went 13-1. He had 1,514 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground and showed softy hands by hauling in 18 receptions for 317 yards and four more scores.

"I love playing in the one-back and running between the tackles," Langi said. "I also think I'm a good receiver, so I like catching it too and then I can use my size and speed to my advantage.

"I also love blocking and making sure my quarterback has enough time to throw it. Overall, I just love playing football and doing what I can do to help my team win."

Langi is LDS and said he's undecided at this point whether he will take his mission before or after he plays college football.

"That's something I'm thinking about, but I'm not really sure yet what I'm going to do," Langi said. "It's something I will talk to my family about and talk to the coaches about wherever I end up.

"It's important to me, but there is a lot to consider when you do something like that."

Langi said he plans to visit some other programs this spring to get an idea of how things are run during spring football practices and hasn't ruled out making an early decision, but said he'd like to take all of his official visits before he signs next February.
