Tolutau prepped at East High School, where he rushed for 2465 yards as a senior, breaking the Utah 4A record. He also broke the state record of 100-yard rushing games, finishing with 13 in 2013. He averaged 12.6 yards per carry and had 31 touchdowns and was named Deseret News’ Mr. Football in 2013.
Tolutau is rated 3-stars by Rivals, Scout, and ESPN (grade of 71). Out of High School he was offered scholarships by BYU, Hawaii, Oregon State, Utah, Utah State, and Wisconsin and was also recruited by Arizona State, Colorado, Michigan, SDSU, Stanford, UCLA, and Washington. A one-time Wisconsin commit, Tolutau de-committed this past summer following his LDS mission. He will enroll in classes at BYU in January.
