Utah football has announced the signing of Herriman (Utah) Herriman tight end Tevita Fotu. Fotu is the younger brother of Utah defensive tackle Leki Fotu. Both Fotu and Jarren Kump flipped to Utah from BYU on the same day in October. While he is listed as a tight end, I expect Tevita to follow in his older brother’s footsteps and play on the defensive line at Utah.
I cannot find any film of Fotu, but he is listed at 6’ 4”, 250, meaning he has a great frame to add weight at Utah. Leki was listed at 6’ 6”, 255 coming out of high school, so Tevita has a similar build. Leki is now 6’ 5”, 323 just as a reference, so there are definitely some good genes in the family. It is always nice to flip players from BYU and to have multiple members of a family play at Utah.
Welcome to the family!
