Arizona Football signs Stanley Ta'ufo'ou from USC Defensive Line

The Arizona Wildcats continue to shape their roster for the upcoming season and a new member has been added from the transfer portal.

On Wednesday, former USC defensive lineman Stanley Ta'ufo'ou announced his transfer to Tucson.

Ta'ufo'ou played five seasons in Los Angeles, his best year being 2022. He played in 14 games with 13 starts and collected 27 tackles, 5.5 for loss, with one sack and one fumble recovery. Overall, he posted 55 tackles, 7.5 for loss, one sack and two fumble recoveries in his career with the Trojans. He started 27 career games at 'SC.

After entering the portal on April 16, Ta'ufo'ou kept his recruitment fairly secret. For this reason, it is unknown which schools made him an offer.

The 6'2″ and 275lb lineman was a 3-star prospect in the 2019 recruiting class at Grace Brethren High School in Simi Valley, California.

Ta'ufo'ou didn't seem to have the development needed in LA to reach his full potential. It will be interesting to see the steps he makes in Tucson. One thing is for sure: he brings a lot of Power Four starting experience and that's something that can't be overlooked.

He is Arizona's ninth transfer this spring, the third on the defensive line after former Memphis defensive player Jarra “Bear” Anderson and former edge rusher from Utah Chris Kennedy.
