Utah received a commitment from Snow College's Handsome Tanielu on Tuesday, potentially adding one of the nation's most coveted 2016 junior college defensive tackles to a rotation that's already regarded as one of the nation's deepest.

The 6-foot-2, 310-pound Tanielu was rated three stars in 2010 — coming out of Hawaii's Waianae High by Rivals — which listed offers from BYU, Virginia, Baylor and Oregon State.

According to his Scout profile, he currently holds offers from Penn State, Oklahoma State, Missouri and Louisville, among others.

We'll update this story if we learn more. Watch Tanielu's highlights here.

Below are links to the committed recruits that the Tribune has reported on. Note that Snow College linebacker Kurtis Taufa is no longer included after he committed instead to Kansas.
