Salt Lake City (Utah) Cottonwood running back Stanley Havili has been one of the tougher players to read this recruiting season. After his recent visit to BYU, he's now become an even tougher read.
We talked with Havili a week ago and he said he was leaning to the Pac 10 and specifically USC and ASU. He listed a hanful of schools he was looking at but omitted BYU. When we asked about the Cougs, Havili said, 'oh yeah, I like them too.'
He sounded a lot more enthusiastic after taking his official visit.

"I had a great time on the visit," Havili said. "Honestly, the trip was perfect, there really wasn't anything I didn't like about it. I was hosted by Fahu Tahi but a lot of us all hung out together, the players on the team and the recruits there so it wasn't like I had just one host.
"There's a nice comfort level at BYU because I know a lot of the players already and I've been to the campus before. I still had a great time with everyone and loved the snow mobiling. That was a highlight for sure."
Havili has already visited Iowa, ASU, USC and now BYU and will take his last visit to Oregon next weekend.
"Everyone is still in it," Havili said. "Hopefully I'll be able to make my decision shortly after my visit next weekend. I know it's getting late in the process and scholarships are starting to be taken. When I talked to the coaches on my trip here, they didn't really pressure me too much, but did say scholarships are going fast and I understand that. Like I said, hopefully after I visit Oregon, it will become pretty clear to me where I should go and then I'll make my decision."
