Who is Sione Veikoso?

The 6-foot-7, 325-pound lineman hails from Kailua, Hawaii, and was a two-star recruit in the 2018 recruiting class prior to leaving on a two-year church mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He originally committed to Oregon State in 2020 before flipping to Arizona State later that year, according to his 247 Sports recruiting profile.

Veikoso redshirted last year after playing in one game for the Sun Devils and will have four years of eligibility as a redshirt freshman.

He joins former Oregon offensive tackle Kingsley Suamataia as the second Pac-12 offensive line transfer to join the Cougar program in recent months.
