Yesterday it seemed as if Timpview, Utah, offensive line prospect Xavier Su’a-Filo was going to announce on ESPNU where he was going to play football. That now may or may not happen, because Su’a-Filo may be waiting to see if his current high school coach, Louie Wong, gets the offensive line coaching job at Utah.
That decision may take a few days, which could mean that Su’a-Filo may not declare tomorrow as originally planned.
Xavier Su’a-Filo is the No. 3-ranked offensive lineman and the 35th-rated prospect on the ESPNU 150. The odd thing is that on some of ESPNU’s lists, the final schools are BYU, USC, UCLA, and LSU. Then, on others, the same list includes Utah.
This would be a huge get for any school, but one thing that puzzles me is why BYU is still on the list. There have been radio reports that BYU is not on the list, but I guess until Xavier takes the Cougars officially off his list, nothing is complete.
All signs point to Xavier Su’a-Filo’s basing his decision on whether his high school coach gets the offensive line job at the University of Utah. So if Wong gets the job, Xavier should be at Utah.
If Wong does not get the job, then who knows who will get Xavier next year. Either way, this could keep the Utes and every other school waiting a few days.
