BYU added some more defensive line help as defensive end Nuuletau Sellesin committed to BYU. Sellesin confirmed to me that he is enrolled at BYU for Winter Semester — which starts today — and is joining the team as a preferred walk-on.
Sellesin played in 11 games this last season for the Wildcats and was second on the team with 4 sacks and tied for first with 5 QB hits. He also added 24 tackles, 6 TFLs, and 1 forced fumble on the season. His best performance of the season came versus Eastern Washington when he was named Weber State’s Defensive player of the game with 4 tackles and 2 sacks.
Sellesin was at Weber State for three seasons, but was a redshirt freshman in 2022 due to the 2020 COVID season. He will join BYU as a redshirt sophomore with three seasons of eligibility remaining.
A Woods Cross HS graduate, Sellesin is listed at 6-foot-1, 240 pounds. He will add depth and experience to a BYU defensive line that is looking at a huge rehaul as Jay Hill retools the defense.
With Winter Semester starting today, we may hear about more walk-on transfers. Walk-ons can’t be announced by the school until they are enrolled and the semester is underway.
