Late Monday night the Utah Utes got some promising news for the future.
Three-star Hawaiian safety Brock Fonoimoana announced on social media that he has committed to Utah, the latest pledge in the Utes’ 2023 recruiting class.
Thank you family & friends for all the support. Thank you to all the coaches that recruited me. Thank you Kahuku Red Raiders staff.

247 Sports’ Composite rating lists Fonoimoana as the sixth-best overall prospect in Hawaii and the 79th-best safety prospect in the country.
Fonoimoana chose the Utes over offers from Power 5 schools such as Stanford, Oregon State and Virginia, as well as additional FBS programs like BYU, San Diego State, Utah State and Hawaii, among others.
Per HUDL, Fonoimoana has played on both side of the ball at Kahuku High School — as a wide receiver and free safety — but has been recruited to play on the defensive side of the ball in college.
Fonoimoana is the 13th commitment in Utah’s increasing large 2023 recruiting class and the second safety, joining 4-star recruit Randon Fontenette.
