Leuta burst onto the national rugby scene in early 2015 when he attended a recruitment camp at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.

He caught the attentions of high performance staffers and was included in USA Falcons and Men's Eagles Sevens squads before the end of the 2014-15 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

After missing the Rio Olympics due to injury, he was named to the USA Rugby Selects team that played in the inaugural Americas Pacific Challenge developmental tournament in October 2016.

He started all three matches for the USA Select XV and then started tests against Georgia and Canada in 2017.

In October 2021, he signed a deal with Major League Rugby side, Houston Sabercats.
