    Since committing to Utah in March, Wily-Matagi has seen a lot of interest. Camp invites from USC and CU, for example.

    Has stated he is solid, but seems to be looking.

    Projects at TE in college. (ESPN actually lists him at 6'5" and, based on his highlights, he looks taller than the 6'3" every other site has him at.)

    Article about his commitment (includes statement about strong interest from CU): http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsutahsports/57649663-59/matagi-wily-utah-kahuku.html.csp

    heh. I love that we only do soft verbals for other teams' commits. Come on over those rockies Tuli!

    There is a reason for the soft verbal on this one. He may or may not play for CO but I doubt he plays for Utah. We have a good shot. Islanders and Colorado go way back.

    He went to the All-Poly camp after our camp. Could be in line for more offers soon.

    We look to be in great shape.

    I'd be happy if Tuli was our TE for this class. I think he'd be a major contributor as a "move" TE.

    Haven't seen a recent update on him but he's Kahuku's starting QB this Fall. Checked out his twitter and it's 99% Utah but he did retweet a couple CU related tweets

    Please.

    As I said before, this would be an excellent TE fit for this recruiting class. I'd want a JUCO TE to go with him and give him time to develop (not force a redshirt burn). But Tuli could be a big time player here in this system. I'm really not sure how he fits in Utah's system with his skill set.

    No other visits scheduled, per Rivals.

    Could be a huge day for Poly recruiting. Would be nice for one of these deals to go our way.

    No matter what happens, nice to hear how great an impression we are making. Hopefully, we'll begin seeing dividends soon. Comments like these give me a lot of hope that we are getting close to turning the corner.

    This afternoon, Tuli followed the below tweet with a re-tweet of the announcement that Roddie had de-committed from Utah. Hmmm...

    Pretty much a must get because we don't seem to have other TEs on the radar.

    247sports can't figure out how to spell MacIntyre's name? Weak sauce.
