Fou Fonoti (6-5, 295) out of Cerritos College is getting closer, but he's not necessarily close.
"I still have a lot of thinking to do…My top three is Washington State, Michigan State and Arizona. I narrowed down my list…because it started becoming overwhelming at times," said Fonoti.
Fonoti, who was named first team National Division Northern Conference this season, said a decision could come sometime right after Christmas, but it could also go longer.
Fonoti said he is still hopeful he can get all his academic requirements done in time to be a mid-year transfer but said it might be looking more and more like he would be a spring graduate.
FONOTI TRIPPED TO Arizona this past weekend and gave the experience high marks.
"It was great. There were a lot of Polynesian players there, and it felt like home.. I just need to weigh things out still between the schools. It's still about the little things and talking it over with my family," said Fonoti.
Fonoti has been kept busy with the in-home visits, including sitting and down and talking with the WSU coaches last week. He doesn't figure to have any in-homes this week, however.
"All week last week I had coaches over… Michigan state and Arizona were supposed to be coming over this week but I'm not too sure because Michigan State told me there was a period coaches can't come over," said Fonoti. (Note: Junior college prospective student-athletes intending to enroll at midyear are subject to the additional recruiting calendar restrictions: Quiet period: December 12 and 17 – 18. Dead period: December 13 – 16)
Fonoti has three years to play two at the next level.
His teammate, DE Eli Edwards (6-2, 245), has verbally committed to Washington State.
