Costelli’s father Peter also replied to Vaha’s tweet with a message.

“There are no stars to measure one’s drive to be better, or their will to win, or even the sacrifices they’ve made on their path,” Costelli shared. “When Utah recruits a player, it’s just not about stars or ratings as their coaches state…it’s also about character. We witnessed this first hand by Utah players and coaches on several visits to the U. They walk it like they talk it. This had a major impact on us, and on our son’s decision to continue his academic and athletic career at the University of Utah.”
