Iolani School running back Raynold Stowers made a verbal commitment today to play football at the University of Utah next season.
Stowers, who is 6 feet 1, 205 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, visited Wisconsin this past weekend but turned down the Badgers after returning home. He also had drawn interest from Hawai'i, Michigan State, Oregon State and Washington State, although he said none of those schools made official scholarship offers.
Stowers visited Utah two weekends ago; the first day he can sign a letter of intent is Feb. 4.
Stowers rushed for 545 yards and five touchdowns in just four Interscholastic League of Honolulu games this past season, averaging 8.3 yards per carry. He missed three games with a shoulder injury.
