Servite DT adds Mountain West offer

Ranked as one of the top defensive tackles in the West, it's no surprise that Kirifi Taula of Anaheim (Calif.) Servite has gotten plenty of attention this spring.
The 6-foot-3, 269-pound three-star prospect that ranks as the No.37 defensive tackle in the nation, already had nice offers from Arizona, Oregon State and Wake Forest on his list.
He said on Wednesday he added another impressive offer to his resume.
"Utah just offered me," Taula said. "I'm really excited about that offer. They're one of the top programs in the country. It's an offer that I'm really glad came. They have a really good tradition up there, and it's a school I'm going to look into."
Utah, UofA, OSU and Wake Forest aren't the only teams in hot pursuit of Taula. He said Cal, Oregon, UCLA and USC have also been following him heavily this spring.
"I'd like to stay close to home," he said. "But I'm open to anybody that [is] interested in me."
