    Matayo Uiagalelei is the younger brother of Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei and he'll be a top-100 player in the 2023 class (and maybe much higher than that). He's already checking in at 6-foot-6, 265 pounds and there might be a real debate as to whether he's a better defensive end or tight end. It's surprising how smooth he is as a route runner at that size and he has great hands when catching the ball.

    USC is going to be a real option if they continue to pursue him. He's really into making music, so USC's music school could be a big pull for him.

    Jimmy Iovine and Dr Dre helping to pull in the music-minded! Hope MUiaglelei decides to be a Trojan!

    He carries his size well.

    He looks like he's 235, NOT 265. If he is at the higher weight, he moves really really well. Man oh man.

    I'm at around 240 and he's way bigger than I am; 265 seems right.

    Kid will be a matchup nightmare at TE.

    I need to see some videos of him coming off the edge. Judging from these clips, I see no reason why he couldn’t beast on that side of the ball, too.

    I don't bang the table that often unless a prospect is really special... I'm banging the table on this kid. WOW! He explosion off the line of scrimmage at the snap, mixed in with his size, makes him look like the next Tony Gonzalez, Gronk, Kittle...you fill in the blank. Very impressive looking young athlete.

    Would be a nice option to have in 2023.
    By then we would have a new HC and/or OC so things SHOULD be a lot different for USC as far as a balanced production from all of our offensive weapons.
