It's too bad Lotulelei didn't qualify academically for BYU out of HS.
Ca n you imagine a D with Lotulelei and Ziggy?
That would be so AWESOME if Star came back here to Philadelphia.C'mon Chip...get it done!
I would love to see Star go #4! It's a good thing for Star
that he didn't qualify academically for any D-1 school out of HS, that gave
him time to grow up and mature. Great for us Utes (and for Star) that Whitt and
Co saw his talent and brought him to the promised land!!Go Star!
Good luck Star. You will go in the first round and will be a starter for many
years in the NFL.(@Hondo - a bit obsessed with the Utes apparently.
Funny but I didn't see anything in this article about the tds, nor in the
article about the Utes Spring practice. Maybe our 4th win in a row this year
will quiet you down for a while.)
Hondo, what makes you so sure Star would have done as well at BYU? They've
only produced one notable DL in a long time in Brett Keisel, and Fangupo may
have actually hurt his professional prospects a couple years ago going from
being a decent contributor on USC's roster to being the best DL on
BYU's, and is now fighting for any practice squad or roster spot he can
get.Obviously exceptional talent like Star will always make its way
to the biggest stage, but I have serious doubts at how well he would have turned
out right out of college at BYU instead of Utah. At BYU he wouldn't have
had constant offseason training and skill instruction from NFL defensive line
alumni like Sione Pouha and Paul Soliai, and even "honorary Ute" Haloti
Ngata, and the coaching there hasn't shown to be all that effective,
because even this year, one of the best pro prospects in BYU history isn't
really being evaluated for what he actually did on the football field, but what
he is expected do in the future.
Star has a real future in the NFL.Hondo was a great movie. Not a
great poster, though.
Probably would have been better playing at BYU. We will never know!
