LOGAN, Utah – Former BYU Football running back Sione Finau announced his transfer to Utah State on Wednesday.

Finau posted an Instagram story on the Utah State campus with the caption “New Home”.

The Kearns native played at BYU from 2018 to 2021.

He had his most productive season in 2019, posting 59 rushes for 359 yards and two touchdowns.

At Kearns High School, Finau was a four-year starter, helped lead the program to their best regular season since 1993, and was the Deseret New Region 6 MVP.

Finau joins an Aggies football team that went 6-7 in 2022.

USU had 14 rushing touchdowns last season and averaged just under 160 rushing yards per game.

Calvin Tyler Jr. headlined the rushing attack for the Aggies. He had seven rushing touchdowns to go along with 1122 rushing yards on the season.

Utah State football will open its season against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday, September 2.

The Aggies will play their first home game of the season a week later on Saurday, September 9 against the Idaho State Bengals.
