BYU Football has strengthened its offensive line for the upcoming 2024 season with the addition of Colorado offensive line transfer Isaiah Jatta.

Jatta, a 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive tackle, announced his commitment to BYU on Monday via X. He brings experience, having started one game for Colorado last season and appearing in a total of 11 games for the Buffaloes.

Following his entry into the transfer portal during the post-spring transfer window, Jatta received offers from various schools, including USC and San Diego State. After taking an official visit to BYU last week, he decided to join the Cougars for the upcoming season, bringing with him one year of remaining eligibility.

BYU’s recruitment of Jatta was facilitated by a prior connection, as they had previously pursued him during his time as an NJCAA All-American tackle at Snow College in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Although he chose to play for Coach Prime’s Colorado Buffaloes last year, Jatta’s decision to transfer to BYU adds depth and competition to the team’s offensive line unit.

This acquisition aligns with the efforts of BYU offensive coordinator Aaron Roderick, who focused on bolstering the offensive line during the spring portal window. Jatta is expected to compete for a starting role at right tackle, potentially challenging returning letterman Caleb Etienne, who also saw action at guard last season.

Additionally, BYU has added Southern Utah transfer Austin Leausa to further enhance its offensive line depth following the conclusion of spring practices.
