Fotu makes a decision

As of Wednesday morning no one really knew what defensive end prospect Nai Fotu was going to do. Would he stick with his original commitment to Utah or would he wind up at Arizona?

Despite initial word that the Wildcats won out, it turns out the two-star prospect will be a Ute.

"He is going to stick with his original commitment," said Bryson Beirne, a friend of Fotu and an Arizona signee.

Arizona got involved late in the process and looked to have an inside edge when his good friend Kaniela Tuipulotu gave a commitment to the Wildcats.

That was not enough to sway Fotu, who decided along with his family to stick with Utah.

Rumors swirled Wednesday morning that Fotu had planned on signing with Arizona, but those proved to be false.

"I had heard this morning that it was going to be Arizona," Beirne said. "He really wanted to honor that original commitment."
