Football players make their commitments official today, and most will sign with in-state schools
Fanaika is a Stanford Cardinal
Utah recruit Hunter Dimick will be the surprise of this years signing class.
Congrats to all the Utah players getting scholarships today!Sounds
like Utah will be a big hit with all the instate signings. I think some will
have an opportunity to play as freshman. Fanaika and Chase Hansen will have a
good chance. I heard Moana committed to Utah, with only Utah and Arizona
offering him. I heard they cancelled his trips to Florida State and Michigan,
so Utah was his best bet. BYU is trying to be like Stanford now.
Mendenhall raised the bar for student athletes, so I know the talent pool will
be going down. If most of these athletes were to choose between the Y and
Stanford, I'm pretty sure they would choose Stanford. So good luck
Mendenhall.I hope Utah State, Weber State, and Southern Utah did
well. Good luck to all the athletes in college!
Looking forward to seeing Brandon Fanaika share in the unique BYU experience.Welcome aboard all of the outstanding players who will sign with the
Fanaika is considering byu I hear? LOL.I'll sing the byu fight song
if this kid picks byu. Just last week Stanford, Utah, Utah State, Snow, Weber,
and SUU were all ahead of byu he said. Do I hear a preseason BCS
buster favorite?Er, make that WAC champion.
We're already seeing major differences between being a 2 time BCS game winner,
BCS member vs. being a WAC champion in recruiting battles.Chase
Hansen - byu fan all growing up - Ute!Zach Lindsay - byu fan all growing
up - Ute!Vaha Vainuku - byu fan all growing up(didn't even bother taking
official visit to byu even when told offer was coming upon his visit - OUCH!) -
Ute!There is a reason we don't see high profile recruits switching
from what seems an automatic lock for Utah to become cougars. Going undefeated,
going to BCS games, winning BCS games is more appealing than losing to every
good team you play and then beating your chest by beating WAC nobodies. This has turned out to be a stellar recruiting class. Frankly, I'll be
more surprised if Troy Hinds doesn't switch to the red before returning from the
mission than if he does. Two more WAC championships will hardly excite any
missionaires reconsidering. I've said it before and I'll say it
again:The future of football in Utah, is Utah
