Coming out of high school, Larsen was a three-star prospect and ranked as the 24th-best recruit in Utah.

As a senior, he posted 55 tackles, four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He returned two interceptions for touchdowns and blocked nine kicks. On offensive, he had 762  all-purpose yards and nine touchdowns. Larsen led the Bobcats to their second-straight 4A state championship in 2020 and was named MVP.

Larsen played in 11 games (4 starts) in his redshirt freshman season in 2022. In his first season with the Aggies, Larsen recorded 33 tackles (19 solo tackles), 2 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, a team-best four interceptions, a team-high three blocked kicks, two pass breakups, and two quarterback hurries.

Larsen’s three blocked kicks set a Utah State school record.

Larsen was named a College Football News Honorable Mention Freshman All-American and a second-team all-Mountain West selection.
