Schools In Hot Pursuit of Teuhema Bros.

Sione and Tristan Teuhema of Keller High School are two of the most sought after prospects in the Lone Star State.

Keller, Texas is home to two of the most sought after prospects in the Lone Star State not only for the 2014 class, but for the 2015 class as well. It just so happens that these prospects are brothers; Sione and Tristan Teuhema.

Sione is a 6-foot-4, 215-pound linebacker/defensive end prospect from the 2014 class while "little" brother Tristan is a mammoth 6-foot-5, 335-pound offensive line prospect in the 2015 class.

Both brothers have racked up multiple offers from programs such as Baylor, Oklahoma, Iowa, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Utah, Washington State, Texas and TCU among others. They've made unofficial visits to TCU, OSU, Texas, Baylor and Texas A&M.

It's no secret that the brothers want to play at the same college and they confirmed that again last Sunday at the Nike Football Training Camp in Allen.

"We're going together no matter what," Tristan said. "Sione is basically choosing our college."

The interest they've received is somewhat surprising to both considering they "just play the game". In fact, they admitted that each Saturday they rarely find themselves in front of a television watching games from around the country.

"We don't really watch college football, we just play," Sione said. "It's cool to get some interest."

Sione is receiving interest to play either defensive end or linebacker at the next level and said it really doesn't matter which position he plays.

"This year I played d-end, it doesn't matter what position I play," he said. "Colleges are recruiting me for both."


Tristan is a top OL in 2015
For Tristan, the early interest from colleges was a big surprise to him.

"It feels good because I'm just a sophomore and it's already happening," he said of his recruitment.

The brothers visited TCU in early February for a junior day and received an offer from the Horned Frogs while on the visit. Sione doesn't know much about the program but knows they have a good school.

"TCU offered when we went to their junior day," Sione said. "It's a good school."

Like a true offensive lineman, Tristan liked the food on their visit among other things.

"They gave us food!" he said. "I really like their facilities and I like how everything is close together, it's all within walking distance there. I really liked that."

Another school that impressed the brothers when they visited was Texas; who both say is among their favorites at the moment.

"Getting an offer from them was pretty cool too, they're near the top of our list for colleges," both said.

From all indications, it appears the recruitment for both brothers is coming to a rapid end with the pair hoping to make a decision by the end of Keller's spring workouts.

"We're not going to choose until after spring ball, we're going to sit down together and talk about which schools we like the best," Tristan said.

What is the biggest factor they're looking at?

"We're looking at academics first," Tristan finished.
