"I committed to Utah just now," Fogal told JCFootball.com early Saturday morning as he was preparing to head back home. "The coaches seemed very excited.

"I felt that I fit best with them not only academically but also in the football aspect," Fogal noted. "They also run things very similar to how we do things at CSM and I felt that that would make my transition up here a lot easier."

While Fogal has committed to the Utes, he did confirm that he will still visit UTEP on Monday, June 8th.

Fogal also received an offer from Washington State on Friday, while on his trip to Utah, and he had planned to visit the Cougars on Wednesday, but he has decided to cancel that trip.

Fogal suffered an injury shortly before this past season, forcing him to redshirt. Because he didn't play, most four-year programs decided to move on, but he is currently on pace to finish up his academics this quarter and he can leave if the right opportunity presents itself.

"I tore my ACL two days before the start of the season," Fogal lamented to JCFootball.com back in March. "I didn't play at all. I had to redshirt and get back healthy and that's where things stand now."

As a freshman in 2013, Fogal posted 32 tackles, three interceptions and four pass breakups while started 10 of the Bulldogs' 11 games.

"I played almost exclusively at safety, most free, as a freshman," Fogal noted.

Fogal got his surgery early in the fall and began an aggressive rehab regimen that has led him back to full health and he hopes to find an opportunity with a four-year program to play there this fall.

Fogal is not only a solid prospect on the football field, but he's also a very good student.

He was a full-qualifier after graduating from Arroyo (San Lorenzo, Ca.) High School and he's ready to leave after the spring quarter has been completed.

Fogal will have three years to play three starting this fall.
