Afo ready to commit

Salt Lake City (Utah) Cottonwood Senior three-star defensive tackle Jordan Afo is one of the top players in Utah and many thought there was a good chance the 6-foot-4, 300-pounder might make an oral commitment to BYU at Friday's Junior Day in Provo.
However, Afo said he still needs a little more time to think things through.
"It was a great trip," he said. "I had a good time being around everybody. I got an opportunity to talk to coach Bronco Mendenhall. He asked me if I was ready to commit. I told him I wasn't ready quite yet.
"He then asked when will be the time? I asked him if he can give me until August to let me think things through. I just want to be sure about everything."
Afo, who is the nation's No. 24 defensive tackle, has offers from BYU and Utah State. He is still recovering from a back injury that forced him to wear a brace almost the entire spring and parts of the winter. However, he does have some good news in that recovery front.
"My brace comes off on Monday," Afo said. "I can't wait to get it off."
Afo said he expects to be ready for the start of fall practices for Cottonwood, which is one of the top programs in the state of Utah.
