BYU Fall Camp 2019: Roster Notes and Updates after the First Practice

NCAA Football: Brigham Young at Utah Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

BYU Football is here! Day one of practice is in the books as the team prepares for the 2019 season. Here are some of the highlights after the first practice.

Notable Roster Notes

  • Neil Pau’u- Pau’u is still on the BYU roster, but will redshirt this year according to Coach Sitake. He will have two years of eligibility of remaining beginning in 2020.
  • Navy linebacker transfer Pepe Tanuvasa is now on the roster. Tanuvasa played in all 13 games for Navy last year and recorded 32 tackles. Tanuvasa is a redshirt sophomore and presumably have to sit this season due to NCAA transfer rules.
  • Joe Tukuafu is officially on the roster as a tight end. Tukuafu was not on the team after redshirting in 2017 (Thanks, Matt Wells). He is a redshirt sophomore.
  • Beau Hoge is no longer on the team and has medically retired.
  • Beau Tanner is back as a defensive back after not being on the team in 2018. Tanner played WR in 2017 and has 12 catches for 135 yards and 1 TD. Tanner is probably one of the faster players on the team and will look to make an impact in his final season.
  • Utah OL transfer Mo Unutoa is offically listed. Unuota will have to sit this season.

Other Notes

  • Zach Wilson was back as expected. Coach Sitake said that he has no worries about Zach he think he’s “really close.” Here is Zach’s full interview with the media.
