third-team selection.

However, he isn't the only one getting attention. His younger brother, Lowell Lotulelei, is garnering his own attention with Utah, BYU, UCLA, Arizona and Colorado among his suitors.

The 6-foot-2, 280-pound lineman is benching about 380 pounds, according to Bingham High coach Dave Peck.

"He is as strong as a bull," Peck said. "He might be even stronger than Star was at his age."

The Utes are thought to have the edge on Lowell in recruiting, given Star's success, but he hasn't given an indication he is close to deciding, Peck said.

Lowell isn't the only Bingham player the Utes are watching. They could offer Durrant Miles, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound linebacker who has been offered by Utah State.

Th Utes are also among the many schools offering Dalton Schultz, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound tight end who is expected to be one of the top gets for the 2014 class.
