Fanaika still undecided

Pleasant Grove High School offensive guard Brandon Fanaika is verbally committed to Stanford … or is he? One of the top offensive linemen in the state of Utah, he told Total Blue Sports that he's inconclusive when it comes to an absolute final decision.

"Yeah, I'm still trying to figure it out," said an unsure Brandon Fanaika. "I don't really know why. I guess I just started thinking and thinking about BYU."

Fanaika often spoke of involving faith and prayer in his final decision. Was the stupor of thought from an answer to a prayer?

"Well, I guess you can call ... I mean, yeah, out of nowhere I just started thinking about BYU," he said. "I mean, I know it's just a good place over there."

Apparently, Fanaika has informed the coaches at BYU that they are still on his mind.

"I pretty just told them that I was still thinking about them and they said the same," Fanaika said.

According to Fanaika, the Cardinal coaches are also aware of his current feelings.

"Well, yeah, they already know," he said. "They said they would still be here for me."

So just to be clear, he's not 100 percent committed to Stanford?

"Ah, yeah, I guess," he said. "I mean, I guess we'll have to wait and see. We'll see."

Fanaika is going to keep everyone guessing right up until the end.

"Yeah, I guess we'll have to wait and see," he said. "It should be an exciting time for me."

Wednesday morning, thousands of high school football players from across the country will be signing their letters of intent to play for the college of their choice. Fanaika is going to make one more attempt at invoking a higher power for guidance with the hope he'll awaken tomorrow morning with a mind clear and a heart full of peace.

"Signing day is tomorrow, so I'll just pray tonight and hopefully tomorrow I'll know," said Fanaika. "I'm a little stressed and have a lot to think of. It's kind of a stressful moment for me and my family. I'm excited to kind of get it all done and get everything done."
