As for Unga himself, he's poised for a strong finish to his improbable career at BYU.
"There were a lot of times I'd regret leaving Oregon State, but I don't have any of those regrets anymore," he said. "I've come to love BYU, the mission of BYU football, the coaches, and I'm going to do my best to play as best I can to finish out. We made the right choice to be here — no doubt now."
