BYU offers Texas defensive end

First evaluated at the All-Poly Camp as being one of the standout performers, Trinity's Sam Tevi received another scholarship offer to go with his 11 others. The 6-foot-5-inch, 270-pound defensive end was at BYU's morning session on Tuesday prior to receiving a Cougar offer.

All the way in Euless, Texas, Sam Tevi's father Motukia received a message from his son on Tuesday announcing that he had been offered by BYU.

"I'm still at work, and so I haven't been able to give my son a call yet," Motukia said with a laugh. "I'm really excited for my son to have his offer from BYU."

The news came by way of a photo that brought a smile to a father's face.

"My daughter sent me a picture of my son standing with Coach Mendenhall and Steve Kaufusi, and his brother with my two daughters were there too," said Motukia. "I'm pretty excited about it too."

The offer from BYU was something Sam Tevi was hoping would occur.

"I went down there expecting them to offer me," said Tevi, who wanted to make it know that although he expected the offer, he wanted to be humble about it as well. "Like I said, I don't want to make it sound like I'm prideful, but I expected myself to go down there and perform well enough for them."

Total Blue Sports will try and do a follow-up article once Sam Tevi and his family become more available.
