Hegdehog,nah man, that's not it. The kid just preferred a program
to a Tee shirt.
The reason he didn't connect with Y coaches? Sounds like maybe they were pushing
the mission thing. Also, based on pictures I've seen of him, I'm guessing he
possibly doesn't want to cut his hair either.
The reason he chose U instead of Y."Fakailoatonga's goals
include pursuing a masters degree in engineering while making a bid to play in
the NFL. He previously held plans to serve a mission, but wants to now
concentrate fully on first his education and then on playing football."Too bad. I hope some of the RM's at Utah can help him decide to put the
mission back on the front of his priorities.
Tough to beat the U's engineering school anywhere in the west...nice to hear the
kid talking about academics. And I guessing there will be some tight-end balance
in BJ's offense. Be nice to see a multi-dimensional attack.

strong family atmosphere up on the hill.It's great to be a Ute!
