2023 (Redshirt Freshman)
Brodie Tagaloa suffered a preseason injury and missed the entire 2023 season.

2022 (Redshirt)
Tagaloa worked as a tight end in his first season at Nebraska. He redshirted and did not play in a game before moving to the defensive line during spring practice.

Before Nebraska (De La Salle HS)
Tagaloa came to Lincoln from California, where he starred for prep powerhouse De La Salle High School. Tagaloa was selected to participate in the 2022 Polynesian Bowl.

Tagaloa did not play football his freshman season, but he still earned a starting role as a sophomore in 2019. His junior season was disrupted by the pandemic, as De La Salle played a six-game spring schedule. As a senior, he helped De La Salle to a 10-3 record and a trip to the state playoffs. In addition to playing on the defensive line, Tagaloa was also a tight end for the Spartans.

A consensus three-star prospect, Tagaloa had offers from several Power Five programs. He chose Nebraska over fellow finalists California and Washington State, while he also considered Arizona State, Oregon and Oregon State, among others. His brother, Boss, played football at UCLA from 2016 to 2019, while his brother Beaux is a junior fullback at California.

Brodie was born on Feb. 2, 2004, and he is the son of Corazon and Sam Tagaloa. He is majoring in child, youth and family studies and has volunteered his time with the Nebraska Football Road Race, Legacy Retirement home, the Huskers’ Day of Service and Thanksgiving hospital visits.
