Hunter High's Moses Folauhola grew up wanting to be a Utah football player so when the Utes offered him a scholarship Monday, he didn't hesitate at the chance to realize his dream and committed to play for the Utes.
Folauhola, a 6-foot, 240-pound lineman, hasn't been on any official visits, but said he doesn't plan to look around at other options now that the Utes have offered him.
"Ever since I was little I wanted to go to Utah and now that it is right in front of my face, I've got it," he said. "I grew up knowing about Utah and my family talking about how good Utah is."
The Utes also received a commitment from Nua Poteki, a 6-5, 310-pound offensive lineman out of Brighton H.S. Both players had good showings at the All Poly Camp.
Folauhola and Poteki are the fourth and fifth high school players from Utah to commit to the Utes for the 2012 class, joining Lone Peak quarterback Chase Hansen, Syracuse lineman Hunter Dimick and Alta safety Austin Lee.
