LOGAN, Utah – Former Judge Memorial and Liberty offensive tackle Maisen Knight announced he is going to return home to play for the Utah State Aggies.

On January 9, Knight put his name into the transfer portal after graduating from Liberty. He wanted to transfer to start his MBA and finish his last season of football.

On Tuesday, January 12, Maisen announced via Twitter that he is going to Utah State.

When Knight went to Ventura College, played the 2016 and 2018 seasons, earning all-conference honors. He helped the team to an 11-2 record in 2018 and advancing to the CCCAA State Championship game.
