BATON ROUGE -- LSU learned it had a late addition to its 2012 recruiting class on Thursday night with the commitment of junior college offensive lineman Fehoko Fanaika.

Fanaika pulled the trigger with the Tigers after a two-week waiting period following a visit to Baton Rouge. The 6-foot-6, 340-pound offensive guard didn't make himself available for comment, but Tim Tulloach, his recruiting coordinator at the College of San Mateo (Calif.), was able to shed some light on the big man's decision.

"He was split down the middle with Florida and LSU, as well as looking at Hawaii, but it really came down to Florida and LSU," Tulloch said. "He went away with his family and came back, and he just said LSU was the right fit."
