It's been a busy past few days on the recruiting front for two highly touted Bingham High School football players.
On Wednesday morning, defensive end Langi Tuifua announced via Twitter that he has decommitted from Oregon after the Ducks fired head coach Mark Helfrich on Monday.
Tuifua originally committed to the University of Utah but flipped to Oregon in the summer of 2015.
He has not responded to requests seeking additional comment, but he told the Deseret News in June that BYU was recruiting him hard. He has taken multiple unofficial visits to Provo over the last few months, and Cougar coaches visited him in his home Sunday.
Elsewhere as it relates to Miners on the recruiting trail, highly touted defensive tackle Jay Tufele was in attendance as the Ohio State Buckeyes knocked off the Michigan Wolverines in a rivalry thriller in Columbus last weekend.
Tufele, who is ranked by Scout.com as the 37th-best prospect in the country, visited both schools during the season.25 comments on this story
"It was kind of weird because some fans got crazy and they knew who I was," he said about being in the position last weekend of looking at both schools.
The Buckeyes and Wolverines are two teams in a group of seven Tufele is considering. That list also includes Utah, BYU, USC, Washington and UCLA.
Tufele told the Deseret News on Tuesday night that Trojan coaches will be visiting him in his home Wednesday night, while Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh is slated to be there Friday and Ute coaches will be there on Saturday.
