LDS students Paul and Scott Fisher have received recruiting letters
since they were freshmen, in High School. At six feet eight inches
and 315 pounds, the twin brothers, seniors at Dixie High in St.
George, Utah, are known in their school as the "Twin Towers."
Recruiters know them as two of the best High School offensive
linemen in the country, ranked #5 and #13 nationally according to
StudentSports, a recruiting magazine. They are ranked similarly in
other recruiting polls. Recruiters have also learned that the
brothers plan on staying together in college, but even if they didn't
know, "usually they say they want both of us anyway. They know with
us there's a left tackle and a right tackle, and we're both good at
our positions," says Paul.
The recruiters, led by the schools the Fishers prefer, Kentucky,
Tennesee, Utah, BYU, USC and Arizona, will also have to learn to wait
to see the brothers in Uniform. While they will undoubtedly select a
school this year, they don't plan on attending until after serving
LDS missions, which means they will probably be apart for two years.
