Sounds like a perfect fit for coach Whit! He will be able to turn a kid like this into a possible NFL prospect after 4 years.

I can't wait to see how the rest of this recruiting class shapes up this week. If a few top prospects on the list end up signing with Utah, this will be the Utes highest ranked class ever!

It should be an exciting week for the Utes.

Looked for him on youtube the other day when I saw Utah was picking up interest in him and couldn't find any football tape of him, but there was a video of him playing around in the gym with his friends and the dude can explode off the ground! Some conditioning will probably do him good, but if he can come off the line like he was going for a dunk, he'll be around the corner and to the QB in zero seconds flat.

Looks to be another great find from the coaching staff up on the hill.
Kept his hopes up that BYU would offer him , but took Utah over the Y before Roscoe and his bros finally woke up.
From the press release...
" PASONI TASINI, a very busy four-sport MIL Athlete of the Year in 2010-11, improved in all categories from a year ago. His combine best 32.5 vertical jump is the one stat that jumps off the paper its written on when you consider he's 6-foot-3, 240 lbs. Easily the MIL's top college football prospect ".

@duckboy

Please explain what is so delusional about my comment?

Maybe you haven't noticed because you've been listening to Bronco talk about how he is going to win a national championship at one of his firesides. The Utes have put quite a few players in the NFL over the last several years so I don't think that is delusional.

I also mentioned that this could be the highest ranked recruiting class the Utes have had - that is also not delusional. I'm just basing that off of Rivals and Scout. So are you telling me they are delusional?

Good luck this week - of course you don't need lick when your coach says he will never lose a recruit. Man that is a great position to be in. I'm just glad he didn't want any of the players that have committed to Utah. Doh!

Go Utes

"Sounds like a perfect fit for coach Whit! He will be able to turn a kid like this into a possible NFL prospect after 4 years."

Let's see, utah "fans" are now claiming that an unranked, unheard of, after thought, last minute recruit, is now going to be an NFL prospect. Yes that is delusional. No whittingham does not take every recruit and "turn them into NFL prospects" LOL!

None of us know's a thing about this kid other than utah just committed him at the last minute and you are somehow sure he is going to be an "NFL prospect". I remember last year at this time when you were all claiming the rugby player was going to be some super stud rb. He baiscly never saw the field and now they are going to change him to defense because he obviously flamed out at rb.

Good grief.....LOL!

@flamesout

Nope, never even heard of him. No one has. Now qwest has him in the NFL based on nothing more than utah offered him a scholarship, almost the only school to do so. Yes delusional.

LOL!

Duckhunter, how little you know. Thretton Palamo has wanted to play LB all along, but depth issues at RB and a lot of defensive depth last year made the coaches put him in at RB, where he looked pretty strong in spring ball. If JWIV hadn't broken out as the player he is and Tauni Vakapuna rejoined the team right before the season started, he would have likely seen quite a few offensive snaps. Regardless, he was a big special teams contributor this year, so saying he "baiscly (sic) never saw the field" is ignorance, and now I for one hope he does get to play the position that he joined the team for.

Ya Qwest. According to Ducky " I remember last year at this time when you were all claiming the rugby player was going to be some super stud rb." Kinda like Ducky saying that John White was "just some JC transfer, he won't be any good" and that Heaps "would win the Heisman before he graduates."

No wonder Ducky wanders off to Tulsa.

@ducky

Read my post again. I said that Kyle could Possibly turn this kid into an NFL prospect.

I'm not sure where you got confused but I think it was probably a long time ago.

Maybe you should concentrate on how awesome your teams recruiting class is. Maybe this is your year! Lol.

As for me, I'm going to concentrate on the Utes recruits.

Word is that Will Latu decided on Oklahoma. Bummer for sure, but at least it's not a team we're likely to face off against (a la Isi Sofele). Good luck to Will in the Big XII.

@stg

Scramble to spin it however you want, the fact remains as a rb, which so many of you claimed the rugby player was going to be a stud at, he never saw the field.

As for this other kid, no one has ever heard of him including all of you yet qwest thinks whittingham is going to turn him into an NFL prospect. Based on what? That he committed to utah? Please, that is delusional.

BYU has a kid from Washington that will sign this year that is not a highly rated recruit but has off the charts athletic ability. Hieofully he turns into a player but no one here is claiming he'll be turned into an NFLer and don't give me any "whittingham puts guys into the nfl" spin either. The number of players from each program in the NFL is actually very close and if you are just counting players the coaches themselves "put in the NFL" we can add Brian Urlacher to Bronco's list.

Of course you can get back to me if the rugby player ever turns into any type of player, I wish him well also.

Another good athlete for the Utes. Looks like the Hater is back trolling the Utes recruiting thread and laughing at his post. Kinda sad and pathetic when you think about it: GO UTES!

Duck,
I'm not scrambling for anything because I don't speak on behalf of every Utes fan, but I never made those claims. Yet with Pasoni, you're claiming "no one has ever heard of him including all of you," which is untrue as well. I had been following him over the last month or so, so there goes another Duckhunter Myth.

NO one heard of him and yet True Blew sports has BYU all over this guy.

Please just re read my quote above from the press release.

"The number of players from each program in the NFL is actually very close"

LOL go count again. Then count the number of starters, it's actually not very close.

LOL thanks for the continued entertainment.
