Projection

Power-5 Starter


Tagoa’i is a long, athletic defender who plays inside and outside ‘backer for the Tritons and we could see him adding weight and growing in to an edge rusher in college. At 6-4, 195 pounds, he has a projectable frame and does a little of everything well. He’s an explosive athlete with a quick get-off and can really get around the edge. He has very good closing speed and can run down plays from behind. He’s a fluid athlete and looks natural dropping in coverage and he plays with a nice edge in his game as well. He’ll take some chances and will need to start disciplined but his upside is extremely high. When you look at his ability to play in space, rush the passer or even drop in coverage, he’s an easy player to project as a national recruit with the talent to play for just about anyone in the country.

H.S. Athletic Background

2022: Credited with 73 tackles, including six for a loss, in 10 games as a sophomore. Recorded an interception and nine pass deflections, while also contributing on the offensive side of the ball.
