Teo staying at Notre Dame; Delaying Mormon mission

By Mike Cherry - bio | email

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Manti Teo was the star recruit for Charlie Weis and Notre Dame last year, now he may be giving new Irish head coach Chris Kelly a reason to smile as well.

The Punahou alum says he will delay taking a Mormon mission and return to South Bend to play his sophomore season.

Teo's freshman season was very productive... he started the last 8-games for the Irish and had 63-tackles and 1-sack.

Teo says he reached the decision after speaking with his parents and his bishop in South Bend.

Brian Kelly was installed as Notre Dame's coach earlier this month after Charlie Weis was fired.
