Gary Andersen maintained following signing day that he wasn't finished recruiting and would probably add to his team in the coming weeks.

On Monday, he did just that.

He signed offensive lineman Joe Summers and defensive lineman AJ Pataialii, both out of Snow College, both coming close to 300 pounds.

Both are eligible to play and will join the team for summer workouts.

Expect Pataialii to contend for a starting spot on the defensive line, as he is quick, nimble and explosive out of his stance. His strength also gives Andersen the option of playing him on the interior as well as outside.

A former star at Hunter High, Pataialii played eight games this season, posting 23 tackles and two sacks.

Summers is a former all-stater at Bear River High.
