moves from Har-Ber.

A vi­tal piece of Spring­dale Har-Ber’s highly touted de­fense will not take the field with the Wild­cats this fall.

All-state se­nior line­backer Oliver Nasilai has moved from Spring­dale and is no longer part of the pro­gram, the North­west Arkansas Demo­crat-Gazette

learned Fri­day. Nasilai led Har-Ber with 61 tack­les and 14 tack­les for loss in 2016.

On June 14, the star line­backer com­mit­ted to Brigham Young Univer­sity, the first school to ex­tend an of­fer last fall. He also held Divi­sion I of­fers from Air Force and the Univer­sity of Cen­tral Arkansas.

Nasilai moved to the Hot Springs area, Har-Ber foot­ball coach Chris Wood con­firmed Fri­day. Har-Ber is com­pet­ing in the na­tional 7-on-7 tour­na­ment in Hoover, Ala., this week­end. Wood did not have any fur­ther com­ment. Mul­ti­ple at­tempts to reach Nasilai on Fri­day were un­suc­cess­ful.

In his two sea­sons with HarBer, he tal­lied 128 tack­les, seven sacks and 20 tack­les for loss. Nasilai was named All- NWADG De­fen­sive Player of the Year in 2016.
