    Ratings from the premium sites seem a bit low when compared with that offer list and the fact he was All-District for Trinity as a junior.

    Seems willing to look around. Took a visit up to Utah. Tongan connection, most likely.

    I will begin to lose faith in the Cabral/Tui connection if we lose this one.

    Most of the offer list is because he is 6'6" at 260 lbs. All coaches think they can be the one that finds the jewel? come to CU kid! We need that kind of size to work with.

    Took a late visit to TCU, but ended up committing to Utah.

    I seem to remember that Utah got like 3 Poly kids from Euless, TX this year. A real "trinity". It's odd.
