Vainuku signed with the Utes in 2012, but left the team for a church mission until returning in 2015. The 6'3", 295-pound lineman was sidelined with an injury in 2015 as a redshirt and played in just two games during the 2016 season.
The two-time all-state offensive lineman will have two years of eligibility remaining with Nebraska.
