Utah earns commitment from athletic 2023 safety out of Hawaii
Right around midnight Monday night, Utah earned its 13th known commitment of the 2023 class.
Brock Fonoimoana, a 2023 safety prospect from Kahuku (Hawaii), announced his commitment to the Utes. He chose the Utes over Stanford, San Diego State, and Hawaii, among others.
Thank you family & friends for all the support. Thank you to all the coaches that recruited me. Thank you Kahuku Red Raiders staff. Thank you @Utah_Football staff @UtahCoachWhitt @CoachPowell99 @coachsterls @bangulo @BrandonHuffman @adamgorney @GregBiggins #justakidfromlaie🤟🏽 pic.twitter.com/k3HKzXpXlH

A 3-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite, Fonoimoana ranks as the 79th-best safety in the 2023 class and the sixth-best prospect from Hawaii. He took an official visit to Utah back on June 10, a week before checking out Stanford.
MaxPreps doesn’t list any public stats for Fonoimoana’s junior season last fall, but his Hudl highlight tape is littered with interceptions and pass breakups from his deep safety spot in Kahuku’s defense. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete also plays wideout, showing off some athleticism that makes him an interesting linebacker/nickel option at the college level if he can continue building out his frame.
According to UteZone’s Steve Bartle, Fonoimoana will serve a church mission after he graduates high school.
