LOGAN — Utah State football’s 2021 recruiting class just got a little bit larger.
Late Thursday night, Bingham High defensive end Tupou Maile announced his pledge to the Aggies’ program over Twitter, becoming the fifth player to commit to USU.
As a junior in 2019, he recorded nine total tackles and two sacks, per the Deseret News’ high school football statistical database, highlighted by a season-best performance against Jordan, when he had two tackles and two sacks.
At 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, Maile becomes the second defensive player to join the Aggies’ 2021 recruiting class, along with Sky View High defensive back Isaac Larsen of Smithfield, who committed to the program in November 2019, per 247Sports
Other USU commits include 3-star running back Kendric Rhymes (Houston, Texas), 3-star athlete and current quarterback at Box Elder High Parker Buchanan (Brigham City), and tight end Jaden Allen (Sewell, New Jersey).
