The BYU football program's 2017 recruiting class continues to fill up, as Cougar coaches have received a commitment from Seleti Fevaleaki Jr., a defensive tackle from Centennial High School in Corona, California.
Fevaleaki's father confirmed the commitment with the Deseret News.
Listed by Scout.com as a three-star prospect at 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, Fevaleaki also held interest from Boise State and Hawaii.
Totalbluesports.com was first to report the news.
The fact that Fevaleaki has a number of close family members who live in Utah and that it would be easier for family in California to come to games was a key in helping him choose BYU.
"I gave him that, but it came to him to decide where he wanted to go," his father, Seleti Fevaleaki Sr., said. "I gave him my point of view, then when he went on a visit he really liked the coaches out there."
Fevaleaki intends on serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints immediately after graduating from high school next spring.
He becomes the 14th player to commit to the Cougars as part of their 2017 class.
