Defensive tackles Mark and Matt Fitu can now be added to that list of walk-ons.
"I don't have any information on my weight room stats right now since I just recently got home from my mission," said Mark Fitu. "I'm about 6-1 and I weigh 310, but I just got home from Guatemala."
Both Mark and Matt Fitu live together in an apartment in Provo and Mark is currently enrolled at BYU while his brother Matt is currently at UVSC with plans to transfer to BYU by the end of the year. While in high school, both Mark and Matt were all-CIF performers at Eisenhower High School.
"They're going to go out for football and both are return missionaries for the LDS Church," said younger brother Joseph Fitu. "They've been playing football their whole life and in high school. They were all-CIF back in California and they're going out for defensive tackle since that position is open."
Matt Fitu was also an all-CIF heavyweight wrestler in California. All three brothers were invited to play in an all-Star football game that covered both San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
Although Joseph is the younger brother, he certainly isn't the little brother. Joseph, who comes in at 6-foot-5, 330 pounds also plans on following in the footsteps of his older brothers by walking on at BYU following a LDS church mission to the Philippines.
"I graduated in 2005," said Joseph Fitu. "Back in high school, my squat was 650 and my bench was at 245. I play defensive tackle and offensive tackle.
"My plans right now are to serve my mission. I got called to serve in the Philippines. I leave on May 13th, but I plan on coming back and going to BYU. I like the environment and plus I like their football team. They've got a good program where I know I can get better."
