Sources close to the situation have informed me that Syracuse High School (Syracuse, UT) Defensive Back Kavika Fonua will verbally commit to play at BYU sometime within the next week. Fonua is a 6-foot, 200 pound safety prospect and seems to be a perfect fit for BYU’s defense.
Fonua is a recruit for the 2014 class.
He’s a hard hitting player that has good football instincts. When watching him play, he reminds me of former BYU safety Andrew Rich, however, Fonua has better speed out of high school than Rich did.
Fonua has plans to serve a mission, so we likely won’t see him on the field for a few years, but his arrival at BYU will be highly anticipated. Fonua will be a player to watch at Syracuse during his senior season.
