Blake Anderson’s Utah State program is making a habit of adding transfers this offseason.

The latest commit came from a player who’s played on both the offensive and defensive lines in college — Jahaziel Lee from Georgia Tech.

He announced his decision to head to Logan via Twitter.

“Just want to thank God for this opportunity. I’m extremely blessed. Cant wait to get down there and get to work. Committed!” Lee wrote on Twitter.

He is Utah State’s sixth Power Five transfer this offseason, joining Oregon State running back Calvin Tyler Jr., Miami linebacker Patrick Joyner Jr., Texas linebacker Byron Hobbs-Vaughns, Kansas cornerback Kyle Mayberry and TCU offensive lineman Quazzel White.

The 6-foot-2, 308-pound Lee played in four games on the defensive line as a redshirt senior this past season before entering his name in the transfer portal in October, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Lee played in 31 games on the offensive line from 2016-18, starting 17 games along the line. He played on both the offensive and defensive lines and started two games at left tackle before suffering a season-ending injury in 2019.

He was on track to graduate at Georgia Tech at the end of last semester, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and will play in 2021 as a grad transfer.
