Utah is home to one of the elite defensive ends in the West region in Thor Pili, a 6-5, 240 pound rush end from Orem (Utah) Timpanogos. Pili has already taken one of his official visits to Kentucky over Thanksgiving weekend and has made some changes in his other visits.
Pili will visit Utah this weekend (Dec. 5) and was set to trip to Nebraska the following weekend but that has been canceled.
"About two weeks ago, Coach Ron Brown called and said that they had just received commitments from two local boys in Nebraska and were no longer recruiting his position," Lani Pili, Thor's mother said. "He now has visits with Oregon (Jan. 9) and Stanford (Jan. 16). His last visit is open and we're still deciding on that one."
Pili was recently named All-Region and has a good shot at All-State recognition when it comes out in the next few weeks. In the meantime, the family has been hosting several schools for in-home visits.
"Last Sunday, BYU and head coach Gary Crowton came in," Lani said. "This past Tuesday, Oregon was over and Utah will be by Thursday. Next Tuesday (Dec. 9) Kentucky will be visiting and then Stanford will be over on (Dec. 11)."
