As first reported by TotalBlueSports, Seleti Fevaleaki has committed to BYU for the class of 2017. Seleti is a defensive tackle out of Centennial High School in Corona, California. He is a 3-star athlete according to Scout and had offers from Boise State, Hawaii and UNLV. BYU head coach, Kalani Sitake and defensive coordinator, Ilaisa Tuiaki have been looking at Seleti for a long time. According to Talo Stevens of Scout.com, he was originally offered by Utah and then Oregon State when the two coached there.
Confirmed: BYU has received a commitment from Centennial (CA) DT Seleti Fevaleaki Jr. for the Class of 2017. @TotalBlueSports first— Ryan McDonald (@ryanwmcdonald) December 6, 2016
This is a great get for BYU as the defensive tackle position needs depth moving forward.
Seleti is a teammate of highly-touted recruit Tanner McKee, a 2018 QB prospect who is being looked at heavily by BYU, Utah and others. There is some speculation that Seleti is the first dice to fall and plenty of optimism that McKee and several other teammates may join him at BYU in the future.
According to Hudl, Fevaleaki is 6’ 2” and 270 pounds currently as a defensive end. From the film, it looks like he plays a lot of both end and tackle for the defensive line. He should mesh well in Tuiaki and Sitake’s defense as they often times move players around.
