Hans & Scotty’s 2024 60 in 60 List

Throughout the summer, KSL Sports Zone’s Hans Olsen & Scott Garrard are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

No. 51 Utah State defensive tackle Seni Tuiaki

The Salt Lake City, Utah native built himself into a three-star recruit while at East High School. Rated the 21st-best prospect in Utah by 247Sports.com, Tuiaki registered 24 tackles and a sack as a senior. He helped the Leopards go 11-3 and reach the 2017 6A state championship game.

After making two tackles during his redshirt season in 2021, Tuiaki played four games in 2022 before a shoulder injury ended his year. He made the first start of his career against UNLV before suffering the injury.

As a redshirt sophomore in 2023, Tuiaki finished with 25 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, and one pick-six interception against the Nevada Wolfpack. The former Leopard earned academic all-Mountain West each of the past two years.

What is the 60 in 60?
