He is rated by 247Sports as the 70th-best interior offensive lineman in the class and Utah’s 11th-best prospect. Tonga’s other offers include Arizona, Oregon, Utah, Colorado and others.
Joining Tonga in ASU’s class of incoming offensive linemen are Filiva’a Saluni (No. 49 IOL) and Champ Westbrooks (No. 76 IOL).
According to reports, head coach Kenny Dillingham is also trying to flip Tonga’s Salt Lake City West teammate Nuku Mafi, who was committed to join Tonga at Oklahoma State.
Mafi is listed at 6-foot-4, 295 pounds and is also a three-star senior. However, he is rated a little higher than his teammate at 69th-best at his position and eighth-best in Utah.
ASU visits the two linemen’s initial choice Oklahoma State in 2024 as part of their first Big 12 schedule after non-conference matchups with the Cowboys each of the past two seasons.
