Texas Football adds Sione & Maea Teuhema, 2014/2015 recruits

The package deal from Keller joins the Texas fold.

The Teuhema brothers, Sione and Maea (also called Tristan), pledged to Texas yesterday.

Sione, the older brother, is a 6-3, 215 pound three star OLB/DE prospect in the 2014 class. His "little" brother Maea, an OT, stands 6'5", 340, is considered the top prospect in Texas in the 2015 class and is an elite national recruit (24-7 has him ranked as the 11th best junior in the nation). And yes, it's still very early.

Burnt Orange Nation had a nice write-up that's worth your time.

Although Sione is considered the lesser talent of the two brothers, he had offers from LSU, OU, Oklahoma State, and TCU. He also played his junior year as a 3-4 DE in an over-shift defense (see his HUDL highlights) and his senior season will be his first chance to show off his pass-rushing skills as a more traditional edge player. As a developmental take, he evidences a lot of what I'm looking for in a high school player. He's certainly tough enough. Redshirt him, give him some developmental time, and see what we have as a 3rd year sophomore.

The more acclaimed Teuhema brother, Maea/Tristan, is regarded as an elite prospect for his motor and agility as much as his enormous size. He's a future right tackle/guard at the college level. And he has two more long years to develop. Needless to say, if he gets sloppy bigger, he could Taylor Bible his way right out of football. But one of the primary reasons for his lofty ranking is in how he carries his massive weight (in his bone structure) and his hard-nosed work ethic.

His Hudl highlights are damn impressive for a sophomore. Rag dolls everywhere. Forget his ridiculous strength - look at those sweet feet and his desire to finish every play. I will write a more comprehensive scouting report later, but this is one of the most impressive young OL I've ever seen.

Welcome to the 40.
