The BYU football program got some more transfer news, as Tevita Mounga and Jacob Jimenez both announced their transfers via Twitter.

Jacob Jimenez

Jimenez announced on Twitter that he will graduate in April and transfer for his final season of eligibility.

The offensive lineman from Texas was BYU’s backup center this season and played in 9 games. A member of the 2015 recruiting class, Jacob played in 15 games during his BYU career.

Good luck to Jacob in his next stop!

Tevita Mo’unga

Another member of the 2015 recruiting, Mo’unga also announced his intention to transfer via Twitter. He did not indicate if he will be a graduate transfer.

Tevita played in 23 games during his career, including all 13 during the 2016 season. Mo’unga was a large presence on the interior of the defensive line with his 6-foot3, 340 pounds frame.

For his career, he tallied 26 tackles and 1 tackle for loss. After sitting out this past season, he was expected to compete for a spot in the two deep in the 2019 season.

Best of luck to Tevita moving forward!

With the transfers of Jimenez, Mo’unga and previous ones already announced, BYU can be more aggressive in the traditional and graduate transfer market as they look to improve the roster for next season and beyond. We’ll keep you posted on transfer news as it continues to unfold.
