Aaron Plantt, a 6-foot-1, 195 pound linebacker, has committed to play for the Aggies next season.
Plantt is from Hallandale Florida and continues to add to the pipeline from that state to Logan. Already, several members of the team will play key roles, who are originally from Florida. Those include Tavaris McMillian, Nevin Lawson, JoJo Natson, as well as Rashard Stewart.
The USU coaching staff has made it a priority to get guys from that area because Gary Andersen values speed above almost all else. Plantt fits right in, as he reportedly runs a 4.3 40. He had solid offers from USU, Liberty and Western Michigan. He had interest from Miami (FL), West Virginia and Minnesota.
