Boise State Football

Boise State football adds JC D-lineman to address immediate need

Defensive tackle Josh Fatu of Long Beach (Calif.) City College announced his commitment to the Boise State football program Tuesday on Twitter.

Fatu (6-foot-2, 280 pounds) was a first-team all-conference performer at Long Beach. He was teammates with former Boise State end Mat Boesen, who is going to TCU. Fatu recorded 52 tackles, 14 tackles for loss and a team-best 9.5 sacks.

Boise State only returns two defensive tackles with significant game experience — senior Elliot Hoyte and sophomore Dereck Boles.

Later Tuesday, offensive lineman Donte Harrington (6-3, 295) of San Clemente (Calif.) High announced his commitment on Twitter. Harrington committed to Army on Monday, according to The Orange County Register.
