A former star at Hunter High, Tauauve’a played at Snow Junior College before signing with the Aggies. He was a backup defensive tackle most of this season, but had recently been moved to the offensive line.

Calls made to Utah State coach Gary Andersen seeking comment were not immediately returned.
