Tivao now listed at 5-10, 349

Among the interesting things about signing day is seeing the official heights and weights of the players as they are announced.
The school takes the measurements during physicals when they come on their visits, so they are about as up-to-date as can be, and usually a little better than the ones that float around earlier, which are often taken during scouting combines in the summer.
And maybe the most eye-opening measurement released today is that of DT Johnny Tivao of Cerritos CC, listed at 5-10, 349 — which may make him one of the more unique-looking DLs in UW history.
I spoke yesterday with his coach, Frank Mazzotta, who gave me a little rundown on Tivao.
“He’ll be an inside guy, a three-technique kid,” Mazzotta said. “He’s definitely a D-I guy but he’s kind of a plugger. It’s going to take you a whole week to run around him.”
Tivao originally signed with Boise State out of high school but wasn’t academically eligible.
