BYU Football extended a transfer offer to Southern Utah offensive lineman Austin Leausa, who has garnered interest from multiple schools, including Baylor, Houston, and Fresno State, after entering the transfer portal. Leausa, with two years of eligibility remaining, played for SUU, briefly transferred to Utah State, and then returned to SUU as a starter. BYU has a pressing need to bolster its offensive line during the Spring transfer window, and Leausa could vie for a starting spot if he commits.

By the Numbers
  • Leausa played in all four games for SUU as a true freshman in 2021 and appeared in seven games in the Fall of 2021.
  • His pass-blocking grade was 83.6, and he accumulated 325 total snaps per PFF during the 2021 season.
State of Play
  • BYU aims to bolster its offensive line and has identified the position as a top priority during the Spring transfer window.
  • The team has three returning starters along the offensive line and is looking to fill at least one or two spots during the transfer window.
What's Next

More updates on BYU's Spring transfer window activity are expected in the coming days.

Bottom Line

If Leausa commits to BYU, his experience in a similar offensive scheme at SUU could allow him to quickly integrate into the team and vie for a starting role, addressing the team's pressing need for offensive line depth.
