Saint Louis offensive lineman Eliki Tanuvasa received his first scholarship offer: Army.
The 6-foot-3, 270-pound junior shared the news on his Twitter account on Monday night.
Here is what Crusaders offensive coordinator Ron Lee, a former college coach, said about Tanuvasa in December.
Our center was the best: Eliki Tanuvasa. If you look at tape, he was the best center by far in the state, so consistent. He blocked the nose guard by himself. Very, very consistent. Smart. He’s going to be one of the best linemen, and we got some linemen who are coming back, returning starters. His sophomore year, until he got hurt (broken thumb), was one of our better linemen. Positioning, feet. Next season, he’ll dominate. And he’s a 4.0 student.”
