The University of Utah announced Tuesday that freshman defensive end Mika Tafua has been added to the Utes’ roster. He is immediately eligible to play, a school official confirmed. The 6-foot-3, 228-pound lineman from Kamehameha High School in Hawaii originally committed to BYU in 2015. Following a two-year LDS Church mission to Tacoma, Washington, though, he joined the Utes this month and was placed on scholarship, according to his roster profile.
