Malosi Te'o is the cousin of Shiloah Te'o, who will be joining BYU's team this fall, and of Manti Te'o, who is the much prized linebacker recruit from Hawaii. The three Te'o cousins are very close friends with each other.
Malosi plays running back and always dreamed of playing for BYU as a kid. His high school film shows him to be a running back with lively movement and good straight-ahead speed, drawing comparisons to J.J. DiLuigi. TBS will have more on Te'o's commitment later.
