Since the BYU offer the 3-star prospect has received offers from UNLV, New Mexico, and Iowa State to take his offer count up to ten (and climbing).
Habibi-Likio preps at Saint Francis High School (CA), where he as a junior he had 234 carries for 1438 yards (6.1 ave) and 17 touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 166 yards (13.8 ave) and another two scores, returned 16 kick offs for 598 yards (37.4 ave) and two touchdowns. On defense he had nine tackles, with 2 for loss, two quarterback hurries, a pass deflection, and a safety. His most impressive outing may have been when he rushed 17 times for 250 yards and four touchdowns to propel his team into the Division II Championship game with a 41-21 victory over Wilcox. After his junior season he was named the WCAL player of the year, and was a first-team selection to the CCS/WCAL All-League team. He is lightning fast (4.5 forty) and shifty, and trust me, you should watch his highly reel (below)… it’s like watching a smaller version of Taysom Hill (that doesn’t throw).
Habibi-Likio is rated 3-stars by Rivals and Scout, and has not yet been rated by ESPN. Habibi-Likio holds scholarship offers from Army, BYU, Columbia, Eastern Washington, Hawaii, Iowa State, New Mexico, UNLV, Washington State, and Wyoming. He is also being recruited by Cal, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, and Washington.
