Freshman LB Sione Takitaki (profiled here this week) has been dismissed from BYU. While details are not clear at this point what has led to the dismissal, Total Blue Sports tweeted this within the last hour:

This will sting for BYU fans because Takitaki was one of the few three star prospects in BYU’s signing class and had offers from Pac-12 schools. He has a high ceiling and will be a great college athlete.

As we find out more about the situation we will keep you posted.


This is great news for the young man, the football team, and BYU fans.
