Fonoti Hits Home Stretch

Cerritos College offensive tackle Fou Fonoti has made three official visits and has two more set. He also provided a list of his top four schools and talked about whether he has a leader...

Junior college signing day was a few weeks ago, but one of the top JC offensive tackles remains on the board.

Fou Fonoti, the 6-5, 295-pounder from Norwalk (Calif.) Cerritos College, has two official visits remaining, to UCLA (January 14th) and Rutgers (January 21st). He already tripped to Arizona, Michigan State and Washington State.

"Miami wanted to trip me out there, but it's kinda too late," Fonoti said. "They're definitely not in the equation. They called me on New Year's, and I don't know too much.

"I know Rutgers really wanted me to get out there, and I think it's the right thing to stick to my word and go out there."

Fonoti is listing a top four of Michigan State, Arizona, UCLA and Rutgers, and each school either did or is set to visit him this week at his home. Fonoti added Washington State visited him this week.

"I have a basic top four, and Michigan State is somewhat of a leader," Fonoti said. "I just enjoy the coaching staff. I get along with those guys. When I do speak with them, it's a nice conversation."

"I'm looking forward to making a decision," Fonoti said. "After the Rutgers trips I'll talk to my family and then make a decision."
