Manti Te'o

New Rivals article up on him. He's rated as the #1 linebacker in the country and the #7 player overall.

He's the cousin of former Vol J.T. Mapu, and says the Vols are a school of interest.

Te'o would definitely be a nice pick-up. Anyone know much about him?

I know I would love to hear Kesling struggle with his name.

Only thing I have seen is he is pretty high on USC. He has a close friend there already who is going on his mission soon and Te'o was impressed by that.

He hasn't really talked to J.T. about Tennessee which is kind of weird since they are cousins, but he has talked to J.T.'s dad about Tennessee and he had nothing but good things to say. Article said they are the only ones on the island flying a UT Flag at their house and on their car, kinda cool. Seems like we will be right there until the end.

I do know that the school he goes to was just recently rated the #1 overall highschool in the nation in sports.

The highlights are nice, but take the sacks with a grain of salt - he won't be unblocked that many times for the rest of his career.

Good video. He shows nice burst, takes solid pursuit angles, and plays with some ferocity. He'd look good with a T on his helmet.

I think he stays on the west coast, but I don't know anything more than the articles say.
