Tanuvasa is a sophomore defensive tackle from Mission Viejo, California.

Coming out of high school, Tanuvasa was ranked as a three-star prospect and the 63rd-best player in the state of California.

He ended the year with six tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in four games played.

Last season, Tanuvasa started in all 13 games and was a CFN Freshman All-America Honorable Mention.

He posted 27 tackles, six tackles for loss, two sacks, and a forced fumble.
