Colorado State Picks Up Appalachian St. DE Lanston Tanyi, According To Report

The Colorado St. Rams lack depth on the defensive line and may even play linebacker Shaquil Barrett there, but head coach Jim McElwain has reportedly picked former Appalachian St. Mountaineers defensive end Lanston Tanyi, according to Josh Buchanan. Tanyi has reportedly graduated already and will transfer to Colorado State under the NCAA's graduate studies rules, allowing him one more year of eligibility and to play immediately. His paperwork still needs to be completed, however.

Tanyi missed the 2010 season with a foot injury, redshirted and then didn't play during the 2011 season due to an unspecified university issue.

If this report holds true, the Rams have a bit more depth, but how fast will he be able to fit into the defensive scheme?
