USU Football - Having a Suite time

Three full days into fall camp, Brian Suite is still on the field and not on the sidelines.

Gary Andersen considers that a major victory.

Last season, the sophomore safety hurt a shoulder and missed the entire year. Injuries forced a redshirt the previous season.

"He's healthy, and that's the main thing," Andersen said. "He's always had a setback, and that hasn't happened here. He's been able to stay on the field."

There was an episode of limping on Friday, when he collided with McKade Brady, defending a pass by Chuckie Keeton. But that's it.

And if Suite, out of Hawaii, can find a way to stay on the field? He changes the complexion of Utah State's secondary.

Suite has size at 6-foot-3, and speed that coaches look for at the position. He's big enough to help in run support, and fleet enough to defend the passing game. That's why he's shot to the top of the depth chart this season.

"He's doing exactly what we recruited him for," Andersen said. "He's been very good so far."

Suite gives the back of the secondary size the Aggies have been longing for. But can he stay healthy?

That's the question.
