Coach Paul Petrino picked up another player at the College of San Mateo with the signing of linebacker Eric Tuipulotu.

During his sophomore season, Tuipulotu (5-11, 215) had 59 total tackles (26 solo and 33 assists). In his totals were 2.5 sacks (-10 yards) and four tackles for loss (-22 yards) to go with four pass breakups.

“Eric is a tough, hard-nosed guy,” Petrino said. “He just runs around and hits people, and when he hits you, you know it. He has great passion and plays the game the way everybody wants to see a Vandal play.

“We’re so excited to have Eric on the team.”

Tuipulotu is a 2010 graduate of Serra High School at Menlo Park, Calif.
