Latu served a two-year church mission after high school and redshired in 2018 upon his return. He was a member of the scout team and did not play in a game.
A first-team Honolulu Star-Advertiser All-State selection at linebacker as a senior, Latu committed to BYU over offers from California, Hawaii, Oregon State, Utah, Utah State and Washington State.
He is currently listed on the BYU roster as a 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive lineman.
Earlier this week, former Oregon State linebacker Isaiah Tufaga decided to transfer and 24 hours later had committed to Hawaii.
