Taula committed suddenly to Arizona in early December, but was always open to visiting other schools. He decided to take a visit this weekend to Washington and that was when reports of a change in his commitment status began to surface.
"Any report out there that says he committed is false," Mr. Taula told Dawgman.com Sunday night. "He enjoyed himself there and he even called me and said he loved it and he wanted to go there, but he's still committed to Arizona and he's going to take his visit there next weekend.
"He's going to get home tonight and we are going to talk about things, but he's for sure taking that visit next weekend."
Apparently, according to Mr. Taula, Kirifi's mother is a big fan of Washington and would love for him to go there, but his preference is for his son to stay committed to Arizona.
We'll have more on this breaking story and we'll speak to Taula directly to get the story on his visit as well as his status and if he still plans to take his visit to Arizona next weekend.
