This is great news for Utah! This kid will do great things at the U!!!

Told ya!

Utah has proven time and time again that we are a top 10 program in the nation.

Little brother, see what 2 undefeated seasons, 2 BCS games, 2 BCS wins, being worthy of a real conference, and having real athletes(not sunday school boys) will do for you?

tds was never in the picture. USC had a shot.

Welcome Harvey!

Last year a talent like Langi would have gone to a BCS power.....no more.

The page has turned onto a new chapter in Utes football. As a Ute fan I'm proud that the state of Utah now has a program that can/will compete on a NATIONAL level.

As for the bitter and sad tds fan? life will never be the same.

But it can't be true as the BYU faithful said he was going to go to BYU or at least USC. Being in the PAC12 won't help Utah in recruiting they said; sure. Glad to have you Harvey. John White is another great back they is coming to the Utes as well. Go Utes.

Great choice Harvey

Utah is a great place for Langi. The Utes have a huge void at RB right now. If he can play at the next level he could end up starting or at least getting good playing time.

Plus he doesn't have to deal with the NCAA sanctions that USC is dealing with after they got caught cheating.

Cedar City, UT

Utah was the obvious best choice for Langi. He is a strong sledge-hammer RB, runs down hill and over defenders. I think he is exactly what they need at Utah to turn the offense around and take the pressure off Jordan Wynn. Congrats to Langi. I really hope this comment board can stay focused on him and not turn into a Utah vs. BYU debate.

And the clouds part with a few rays of sunshine, and it was a warm summers day up on the hill if only for a few minutes.

Now if the basketball team could just pick up a W today or at least keep the margin of loss less than 20.

A big win for the Utes against a conference and division opponent while keeping the top recuit in the state at home. The big time is here compliments of the UTES!

Probably a good choice for Harvey considering Utah has a need for a good running back. He'd have a more difficult time breaking in at USC or wherever. That said, he would still look better in blue than any red hue. One drawback he will have with a mid-level team like Utah is lack of television exposure.

Does anyone know if he even had a chance at a scholarship at BYU after his headlines off the field?

Whoa Nellie "One drawback he will have with a mid-level team like Utah is lack of television exposure." Maybe as compared to USC but far more exposure than in Mid Major Independent BYU land. Oh, I forgot about all you 8PM MST games Wednesdays on ESPN against the likes of New Mexico State. BTW he wasnt going to BYU if you offered him a scholarship or not; PAC 12 trumps independence any day of the week.

Now all we need is a QB that doesn't cry and go down in the fetal position when the pocket breaks down. We need a QB with the same size as Langi. Not a 155 lb high school senior who gets injured because he is so small and fragile. We need a man not a mouse. Biggest mistake so far for Whit. Wynn has lost the team. No confidence. Most of them are just ticked off he can't get the job done.

That's cool we have Soma Vainuku in this year's class! Bigger stronger and Rey Maualuga's cousin. FIGHT ON!!

Federal Way, WA

As it often works out, Utah is a good choice for Langi just as Quasada (Sp) made a good choice in going to BYU last year.

Based on need, I am glad BYU got the best offensive linemen this year and Utah certainly needed the best running back.

Bottom Line
Draper, UT

Good get for the Utes. They needed something to go right considering the last couple of months. Let's try and hold off on declaring any paper championships until something is proven on the field.

Unlike BYU we are not worried about "exposure".

1) Lack of "exposure" wasn't a drawback for us when we went undefeated twice and played in January.

2) Lack of "exposure" wasn't a drawback for 11 of our players when they were drafted in the NFL over the last two years.

Welcome Langi!

Good luck fighting a for starting job next year. Looking forward to seeing you compete at the next level.

Nice catch for the ewets.

Congrats on the recruit. He should help the team out.

And before you start bashing on BYU, think about the comments you made when Heaps, Quezada, Apo, etc. committed to BYU. Don't be hypocrits.

You Ute fans act like this guy was such a coup. More little brother syndrome, I expect. Nobody thought he was going to BYU.

He won't save your team from the pummeling its going to take or your program from its eventual demise.
