Bingham's L.T. Filiaga thankful for recruiting attention

SOUTH JORDAN — As one of the state's most sought-after prep athletes, thinking, hearing and talking about the recruiting process can sometimes turn into a grind for Bingham senior L.T. Filiaga.

But whenever that happens, it doesn't take long for the 6-foot-1, 235-pound linebacker to step back and realize how thankful he is to be receiving the attention.

"Sometimes you'll get tired of it, but in a way you still like it, because for me it motivates me to keep going," Filiaga said. "It makes me know I'm on the right track for where I want to go."

Following what he hopes will be a stellar senior season at Bingham High, Filiaga knows what he wants to do — play college football — but where he'll go to do that remains an unknown.

He has scholarship offers from BYU, Utah, Stanford, Arizona, UNLV and Washington, and defending national champion LSU recently started showing interest.

However, Filiaga says he won't make a decision on his future until after he takes his recruiting trips following his senior season, and for now, he's just concentrating on trying to make sure he has the type of season that he enjoyed one year ago.

Filiaga showed up at Bingham High just weeks before last season, and coach Dave Peck and his staff have been reaping the benefits of his presence ever since.
