At 6-foot-3, 230-pounds, the former UCLA commit, also held offers from Boise State, BYU, Colorado, USC, Washington State, and others.
Having that sense of family already established not only with the players, but the fans, coaching staff and overall environment in Corvallis truly helped seal the deal for Tago. He has mentioned numerous times previously about how close he is with current Oregon State commits such as Isaiah Smalls and current players like Charles Moku Watson.
Tago will look to come in and compete for playing time right away among the linebacker group.
