He may be Wes Tufaga’s kid, or a close relative. If so, great lineage - Wes was a real menace at LB, along with Kautai Olevao.
(Tufaga is a Samoan last name - pronounced Too-fungah. Samoans have a silent “n” in the “ag”. Eg, former Ute QB/.WR Fano Tagovailoa, or his younger relative, Tua Tagovailoa)
Suggestion: Rename this thread Football Recruiting 2020-21. We can close it and start a new thread for next year after this years class is done.
That way the thread won’t get ridiculously long.
Hayden Erickson announced on twitter that he is enrolling to play football at Utah. I believe he’s returning from a mission and walking on.
I think he’s from Lehi, and signed with SUU out of HS. An OL listed at 6’4" and 260 lbs coming out of HS.
More on Hayden:
TWO NEW COMMITS THIS WEEKEND!
Darrien Stewart, a 3-star safety from Las Vegas
Velltray Jefferson a 3-star ATH/LB from Fresno, CA.
What ever happened to Darren Jones? If he went to JC he should be a 2021 guy.
If I remember correctly, life ate him up. He came from the toughest of toughest situations and he wasn’t able to make it through the JC level.
That there is perfect technique. Head up, on chest, wrapping up. Textbook.
