Fanuzzi looks at his options

San Antonio (Texas) Churchill quarterback Nick Fanuzzi has been committed to Miami since last March, but recently took an official visit to Michigan State right in mid-December.
Fanuzzi's father, Mike Fanuzzi, says that he wants to be clear that his son remains committed to the Hurricanes. Regardless, other schools are putting on the pressure pretty thick. In fact, Fanuzzi's father says there may be another official visit this weekend if his son chooses to.
"There is Alabama, Iowa State, Purdue, and a bunch of schools wanting him to come up," Fanuzzi's father said. "We're just trying to weed through things right now. He's supposed to go somewhere this weekend, but I'm not sure if he's going to go.
"They're throwing all this stuff at him pretty late."
Fanuzzi's father wants to be clear: his son remains committed to the Canes.
"He's been on Miami a long time and been firmly committed to them through all the coaching changes and shifts," Fanuzzi's father said. "He's stuck with them through it all. Other schools pursued him while he was committed and it was always a 'no, no, no' thing from Nick."
One of the keys for the Fanuzzi family is to find out about offensive coaching hires in Miami. As for what's next for future visits, that remains unclear.
Michigan State certainly impressed both the 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback and his father.
"I liked their staff a lot," Fanuzzi's father said. "I liked their coaching staff, the facilities, and the environment. It was a good visit and a good situation up there."
Fanuzzi's father says that written offers in hand have come in from Iowa State, Michigan State, Kentucky, and Miami. Schools such as Alabama and Purdue have sent verbal offers.
