Your ID pairing is 2001:3319. Unfortunately this device is not supported in the current kernel. Fortunately, the current upstream (kernel.org) kernel seems to have the driver (rtl8xxxu). Can you try installing ELRepo's kernel-ml and see if your device works?

Hi,
as described on elrepo site you can:

rpm --import https://www.elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org
rpm -Uvh https://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-7 ... noarch.rpm
yum --enablerepo=elrepo-kernel install kernel-ml

Bye
