Timpview defensive end Logan Fano has made a decision: He will be a Cougar.

The star T-Bird defender verbally committed to BYU on Saturday during an Instagram Live video. He is rated a four-star recruit and the fourth-best prospect in the state of Utah by 247 Sports in the 2021 recruiting class.

On Oct. 21, Fano announced his final four, which included BYU, Utah, Oklahoma and Washington. He also held scholarship offers from several other Power Five programs, including Arizona State, Wisconsin and Michigan, among others, according to 247 Sports.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Fano helped Timpview advance to the 5A state championship each of the past two seasons — the T-Birds were runners-up to Orem both years. He had 20.5 sacks and 28 tackles for loss as a senior, according to MaxPreps.

The day before, Timpview teammate Raider Damuni — a three-star athlete — announced he was staying committed to BYU after committing to the Cougars as an eighth grader. Damuni is rated the fifth-best recruit in the state of Utah in this year’s class, according to 247 Sports.

Fano is the 13th commit in the 2021 class for BYU and the first four-star prospect in 247 Sports’ rankings.

Fano spent a few minutes prior to the announcement thanking family — including cousin Gabe Reid, a senior outside linebacker at Stanford — friends and his parents for their support. He also gave a special shoutout to Timpview coach Andy Stokes.

“He is like another family member; he’s done so much for me. None of this would be possible without Coach Stokes,” Fano said.
