#USCtotheNFL: How Stevie Tu’ikolovatu is Doing at Bucs Minicamp

The defensive tackle was selected in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft and looks to make an impact during his rookie campaign

It’s always fun to check in on Trojan alumni in the NFL just to see how they’re doing - something that we, here, at Conquest Chronicles will begin to do more of throughout the rest of the summer (you know, we have to occupy our time somehow until the new college football season starts).

Before the draft we gave a brief scouting report on the defensive lineman and so, without further ado, let’s take a peak into how he has adjusted to life with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Here is some footage of Stevie T going through mini camp drills:

And here is a clip of Tu’ikolovatu briefly explaining how others have adjusted to pronouncing his name:

All signs seem to be pointing to “Stevie T” having a decent camp thus far. If anything, people are realizing one thing about him: he is big, and he has “grown man strength.”

Furthermore, here is an interesting tidbit from a conference call featuring Tu’ikolovatu - as he reveals in the interview, Tampa Bay was the only team who granted him a formal interview during the entire draft process. Seems like they knew there would be value in drafting him in later rounds. Cool stuff.

We’ll post more as the summer progresses!

Fight on!
