Harvey Langi is a prospect from Utah out of Bingham High School and made a huge splash a the Nike Football Training Camp in Miami and was named the camp MVP.  Here is what they said about him at the camp:

No one traveled farther for the camp Sunday than Langi, who made the journey worth it with an MVP showing. A big back who likes to "pound the rock" as he says. Was already emerging as Utah's top recruit but more will know his name after the Miami Nike Camp.    

His size confused some at the camp as a linebacker since Langi is 6' 1" 220 pounds, but as the evaluators stated he is a bruiser type of back.  Langi had been on the radar in the recruiting world by receiving offers since his sophomore year and being listed on Rivlas top 250 watch list for 2011 -- the list was put together February 10th.

At the camp he received rave reviews from lead RB coach and former San Diego Charger Pro Bowler Natrone Means:

"He's not just big but very agile and can run. He catches the ball great and is a competitor. The thing I'm sure he does best, power running, can't really be showcased at a camp like this with no pads on and he still went out and dominated. I would really love to see this kid line up and run zone and traps because I'm sure he's a monster on the field."

Langi came out to the camp in Florida to test the theory of how much speed that is in the South and in Florida, and by taking home that MVP trophy he suited himself just fine.  He also has plans to attend Nike Camps at USC, Stanford and perhaps Alabama to test his skills in those parts of the country, as well as to see those campuses.

Currently, Langi has six official offers from BYU, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Stanford, and UCLA.  He has his site on other schools that have not made any offers but does have interest in: ($)

"I like a lot of schools right now and really I'm open to everyone. Oregon, LSU, Alabama, Miami, Texas, USC and Washington are some of the schools that I like a lot who haven't offered me yet."

"Of the schools who have offered, I really like UCLA, Stanford and BYU." BYU is the local school and has a great winning tradition. I know those coaches really well. Basically, I'm just looking for a school that will give me a chance to run the rock."

At first glance Texas seemed to be out of the question because they fill up their class really quick, but currently only one back has committed with two others who have offers with Texas looking for two or three backs. If he is as impressive at the Miami camp as the others he plans to go to then many more offers will roll his way. 

At present time it seems that Harvey Langi is the top recruit in the state, but that can change once the season starts, and he seems to really like BYU especially since they have more of a pounding running game then Utah or Wyoming who both have offered.
