For the last three weeks, we've been waiting for Corona (Calif.) offensive lineman Max Tuioti-Mariner to make his commitment. We talked to Panther coach John Brandom the past two weeks and it seemed like a decision was imminent but once again, it's still going to be a few more days.
Tuioti-Mariner, 6-4, 300 pounds was supposed to visit Hawaii two weeks ago and then commit the following week. He then was supposed to visit the Warriors this past weekend but once again missed the trip.
"I'm not sure what happened, I saw him Friday and asked if he was still going and he said he didn't know," Brandom said. "So I assume if he was still here Friday, that would be a no. He's going to his home visits this week and then he'll make his decision by the weekend.
"Colorado is coming to his house tonight, Oregon is coming on Tuesday and Arizona is coming Wednesday. I haven't heard from Cal yet but I imagine they'll want to come in one last time as well.
"I know I've said it twice already but I really think this is the week that Max will make his commitment. I think he just needs his family to talk to the coaches and then he'll be comfortable making his decision to one of these schools."
