A Utah Man Am I, but i'm so proud of my nef-U on his decision to play at
the Y. Best of luck to him in football and I know the Y will mold him into a
great man.@plyxply, something in their blood, all his uncles played
D-1 ball and all his cousins have either played or currently playing D-1
football. Not only is it in the name, but the kid can play ball! He busted his
tail off to play and earn that scholly so keep ur 2cents in ur pocket!!!
Apparently recruiting experts also like the way Kaufusi plays the game, in spite
of his lack of bulk. Scout gives him 3 stars. He will never be as big as cousin
Bronson, but if he gains a similar 40 lbs. from high school to post-mission, he
could be a factor.
Nice kid but honestly I was surprised he was offered at either BYU or Utah. It
helps to have a great football name regardless of how well you actually play the
With a name like Isaiah, he will go far in life. If he is so "skinny and
weak", why did Utah and others offer him a scholarship? At BYU there are
more important priorities than sports, that's why they recruit athletes who
have their priorities correct! And as Isaiah said, that's why he chose BYU
because he and BYU fit each other! Well said Isaiah, well said!
If a recruit signs with BYU or Utah State, he needs to understand that the month
of December is very busy with finals and bowl games. If a recruit doesn't
think he can do the multi-task thing with finals and bowl games, he should sign
RockOn,Do you remember when Bronson came out of High School? He was
super skinny for a defensive lineman. I'll wager that Isaiah will put some
pounds on during his first training camp. Good luck to the kid.Onward and Upward
Whats neat-o is that this kid wants to play for a team that plays in a bowl game
at the end of the year. Bowl games are NEAT-O...
Was he offered a scholarship at USC? I thought this article was about a young
man accepting a scholarship to play at BYU because he liked the guys and the
atmosphere. I guess I'll have to read it more carefully.Congrats! Having another Kaufusi on the team will be awesome!
neat-o is good right? bailing kids out of the drunk tank….not so good.
BYU is different and the kids are different…if you want another program,
why not choose USC if you like the West? What's the purpose of choosing a
sub .500 program that points to USC as a good team? Just go to USC…no
"neat-o" devotionals there and a good chance of making noise nationally.
uh….the weather is pretty nice too….ask their new coach,
Sark….oh, he played for BYU…forgot that fact for a minute. It all
circles back to the Cougs.
@RockOnhe's going on a mission so we'll see if he fills
out. He's an athlete and he makes plays.
RockOn,I'd take my chances on a Kaufusi. Good pickup for byu.
Yes(unlike most byu fans), I can call it both ways.
You've got the story right, but... what does BYU and the others see in him.
He's a skinny kid. I think they're hoping the poly in him fills him
out, but he's not all that fast nor strong. I don't see him as fast
enough for corner, strong enough for Safety, and definitely not big enough for a
linebacker. Any thoughts, G-Man?
