Class of 2017: LB Tayler Katoa

| No Comments

When USC's spring semester commenced on Monday, four young men became the newest members of the Trojan Family.

Tayler Katoa did everything for his high school team in Utah but drive the bus. As a senior, he played linebacker, defensive end and quarterback, making 36 tackles, 2 sacks and a fumble recovery for a TD on defense. He also ran for 784 yards on 117 carries (6.7 avg) with 14 TD and threw for 299 yards with 3 TD as a QB. At USC, he is expected to become a linebacker, joining a lineage that is second to none among college football programs. Katoa knows something about lineage as he comes from an extremely athletic family. His father, Fotu, was a tight end at BYU (1985, 1988-90), his mother, Elizabeth, was a distance runner at BYU in 1990, and his sister, Eliza, is a senior outside hitter on Utah's volleyball team.
