Mounga Verbally Pledges to BYU

Today BYU received a commitment from California defensive tackle prospect Tevita Mounga. The 38th-ranked defensive tackle prospect according to Scout.com from Vista Murrieta High School made his intentions known today that he will indeed sign with BYU and become a Cougar.

It’s been some time now since Tevita Mounga received his BYU scholarship offer from Bronco Mendenhall. Today he decided to lock it up with a commitment that he would sign with BYU on national letter of intent day next.

“I talked to my parents about what I wanted to do,” said Mounga. “After praying and thinking about it for some time now I decided to make my decision to commit to Coach Mendenhall and BYU.”

The 6-2, 290-pound Mounga chose BYU over Washington State, Washington, Utah, Colorado, and Arizona, among other offers. The reason he decided on BYU was based more on a personal level that deals more with spirituality than anything.

“My parents and I felt that I needed to go to a place that would be best for me,” said Mounga. “After all the prayers and talking things over we felt BYU would be the place that would be best for me spiritually and to help me grow. I decided that I might as well just make my commitment and get it over with, so I did.”

Mounga becomes the tenth prospect of the 2015 class to commit to Coach Mendenhall and BYU. Once we are able to talk with Mounga more in-depth about his decision to commit to BYU a more lengthy report will be given. In the meantime, congratulations to Tevita Mounga on his decision to commit to BYU.
