Four-star defensive tackle Ricky Heimuli (6-4, 280, 4.9) from Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton has completed his last two official visits and now the tension begins for fans and coaches of the last four schools standing.
The last four are Oregon, UCLA, Washington and hometown Utah. Two weeks ago he took an official visit to UCLA and this past weekend the talented behemoth visited Washington.
"My trip to UCLA was good," Heimuli said. "I was able to get to know Coach Rick Neuheisel a little more. We ate dinner at his house.
"I also got a chance to know some of their other recruits, so that was good," Heimuli said. "I hung out with Cassius Marsh and Sealii Epenesa from Hawai'i. I kicked it with those two most of the time."
Interesting is the detail that both Marsh and Epenesa have decided to cast their lot with the Bruins, does this fact help the Bruins?
"I still don't know yet," Heimuli said. "That's good for them that they committed to UCLA because needs some defensive tackles, so that's good.
"I just got back from Washington about two hours ago (Sunday 6:15 PST January 31st)," Heimuli said. "It was also a good trip.
"Coach Sark (UW head coach Steve Sarkisian) and his coaching staff showed my parents and I a good time," Heimuli said. "They showed around Seattle and showed us the UDub campus and everything around there and what they have to offer, so it was good."
"I'm going sit down with my family and talk about it tonight," Heimuli said. "
The Utah staff was the last group of coaches who visited the Heimuli's house last week to give Heimuli one update on the Utah program before signing day.
Heimuli earned a spot on the Rivals.com Rivals100 for the class of 2010 and ended up being ranked as the nations' No. 88 prospect at any position. He was selected to the Rivals.com Utah Postseason Top 20 landing as the Beehive State's No. 2 prospect at any position.
