Highland's Justin Weaver (20) and Mountain Crest's Faimafili Laulu-Pututau (8) get tangled in mid air in the 4A state championship game at Rice Eccles Stadium on the campus of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Friday, Nov., 19, 2010.

LOGAN — BYU received a verbal commit from Mountain Crest's Faimafili Laulu-Pututau Thursday. Laulu-Pututau is a 6-foot-4, 190-pound athlete that will likely play tight end while at BYU.

Laulu-Pututau caught 46 passes for 737 yards and nine touchdowns this past season. BYU now has four verbal commits for 2013, including those of Brayden Kearsley and Dallin Leavitt, both from Portland Ore., along with Trajan Pili from Las Vegas, Nev.

The Deseret News will have more on Laulu-Pututau and his committment when he becomes available for an interview.
