Hank Tuipulotu, a tight end prospect in the 2016 BYU football recruiting class, has returned from an LDS Church mission.

BYU recruit Hank Tuipulotu, the son of former Cougar Peter Tuipulotu, has returned home from his mission to England.

Read about his experiences and his thoughts as he prepares to join the Cougar football program this fall.

“It’s incredible to see so many people from so many different places," Tuipulotu told The Herald in South Carolina. "I’ve never been anywhere that’s been so diverse in my life. There are so many different cultures. It was just amazing for people to be so hospitable to us, as the missionaries. They were all very open and willing to discuss what we believe, in Jesus Christ. That was very special.”

“No one can predict how many games we’ll win or how many points we’ll score,” Grimes told reporters at the annual BYU football media day on Friday. “That depends on so many factors. But I have confidence we’ll play with a lot of energy and we’ll play a tough physical brand of football and we’ll be able to both run and pass the ball effectively.”
