CSU football adds graduate transfer OL T.J. Roundtree

Colorado State completed its 2018 signing class with the addition of graduate transfer offensive lineman T.J. Roundtree Friday afternoon.

Roundtree spent the last three seasons with the University of Louisville, primarily serving as a backup lineman. He is the second graduate transfer to join CSU from a Power 5 school this week after former Washington quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels signed with the program last Sunday.


The 6-foot-6, 315-pound lineman could have an immediate impact on CSU’s relatively inexperienced offensive line. After the Rams lost three senior starters from a season ago, Roundtree figures to compete for a starting position.

Prior to his time at Louisville, Roundtree spent one season at Eastern Arizona Community College. A native of Gainesville, Florida, Roundtree played high school football at Yonge High School.

After one year of junior college football, Toriano was ranked as a three-star recruit by 247Sports and the No. 24 JUCO offensive tackle in the country. He also received interest from Florida before choosing Louisville.
