Dallin Leavitt, a 5-foot-11, 202-pound safety prospect from Central Catholic High School in Portland, Ore., recently told BYU, who he verbally committed to back last November, that he wants to check out other options. He's not the only Portland-based player to do that; Aloha OL Brayden Kearsley has also told the Cougars that he wants to check out his options.

"I'm still committed (to BYU), but I want people to know that I'm open to other options," Leavitt told Scout.com Monday after Hawaii had verbally extended a scholarship offer his way. "I'm in the same spot that Brayden (Kearsley) is in. I want to look at what else is out there and see what that means for me."

The Hawaii offer is Leavitt's second, and he's hopeful others will follow suit, including Oregon State and Colorado. "I feel like Oregon State is close (to offering), but I need to go to camp down there and see if I can get offered then."

But for now, the Hawaii offer has Leavitt really excited. "Hawaii is an amazing offer," he said. "The coaches I've talked to have been incredible, and I'm so excited about it. I just hope that gets across to the other colleges; I want to see other options and take other visits."

Leavitt said ideally that he'd like to spend a weekend and check out everything that the Manoa campus has to offer as soon as possible, but he'd also like to take an official visit there too.
