2024 OUTLOOK

FALEPULE ALO
Senior Falepule Alo is hoping for an injury-free final collegiate season as he currently sits at the top of the depth chart here. Alo battled injuries all season long in 2023 and that limited him to just 7 starts in 9 games played. However, he was extremely effective playing 578 snaps and recording 37 knockdown blocks. During his 4-year career, Alo has started in 14 of 31 games, totaling 1,556 snaps and recording 71.5 knockdown blocks.

Alo chose the Aggies over offers from Air Force, Colorado State, Louisiana-Lafayette, South Alabama, and a preferred walk-on offer to LSU.

Alo is a monster up front on the offensive line. He does a good job of gaining leverage on an opposing defensive lineman and driving him from the line of scrimmage. He has a powerful punch and his first step is fast off the ball. He can get under an opposing player and drive them back. He enjoys demoralizing opposing players by leveling them with vicious pancake blocks.

BRYCE RADFORD
Looking to gain valuable experience is sophomore Bryce Radford. Radford saw his first career live action in 2023 earning 1 start in the 13 games that he played in. He totaled 63 snaps and recorded 4 knockdown blocks.

According to 247sports coming out of Green Canyon High (UT), Radford was rated as the 1,831st-best player nationally, the 163rd-best offensive tackle, and the 34th-best prospect overall in Utah. He chose the Aggies over offers from Colorado State and UNLV.

Radford loves to be physical at the line of scrimmage and he if can put his man on his back he will do it. He is a towering figure who often overpowers opposing defenders. He does a great job of standing his ground and he has a strong lower body that makes it difficult for defenders to push him into the backfield. He is mobile and athletic enough that he can pull if needed and he has the footwork to make open-field blocks in the screen game. He is versatile enough to play all five positions along the offensive line.

JARVIS GRIFFITHS
Adding depth to the position is preferred walk-on redshirt freshman Jarvis Griffiths. Griffiths spent last season on the Aggie practice squad as a true freshman.

As a senior at American Fork High (UT) in 2022, he started all 12 games on the offensive line. He saw action in 35 games with at least 12 starts during his three-year high school career.

Griffiths is a steady center, with his snaps rarely off target. He is nimble enough that he is frequently used to pull and is comfortable going to his left or right. Once he snaps the ball, he explodes into his blocks, often driving opposing players into the ground. He uses his smaller stature to his advantage by leveraging his opponent and driving them backward.
