The Latest: Sometimes when prospects make their commitments more than two years prior to the day they sign their letter-of-intent, it’s almost a sure sign that they won’t be attending that school. Flips happen with more regularity every year, taking away some of the meaning from the word “commitment.” But that isn’t the case for Rivals250 offensive lineman Hunter Lotulelei and his commitment to Utah. Rivals.com caught up with him at the recent Los Angeles stop of the Rivals 3-Stripe Camp Series presented by adidas to talk about his relationship with the Utes.

In His Words: “I’ve been committed for more than a year now and Utah has been showing me the most love. I just feel like its family over there. I know a lot of the players and I already feel like part of the team because of those relationships.”
On his communication with the coaches: “I talk with Coach Morgan Scalley and Coach Harding the most That relationship is really important. That love that they show is a good combo and I can’t wait to get up there and play for them.”
On who he’s helping recruit: “Some of my friends down at east and some of my cousins have offers too and they want me to recruit. I just talk to them about it and I don’t annoy them because it’s their decision to make and not mine.”
Rivals Reaction: Lotulelei is a gentle giant off the field so he’s not a surprise he’s a man of few words. However, he’s one of the centerpieces of the Utes class so having him on board and having him represent the program at marquee events is a big advantage for the program.
