The BYU Football team learned today that Tejan Koroma will be rejoining the program.
Provo, UT – BYU’s coaching staff met with the football team today to announce that Freshman All-American center, Tejan Koroma would be rejoining the program.
ESPN 960 was able to confirm the news with multiple sources within the football program.
Koroma withdrew from school at the beginning of the winter semester and missed spring practices. BYU Head Coach Kalani Sitake was adamant that Koroma would be welcomed back if he chose to return to the program.
Koroma has started 25 games at center since arriving at BYU – including a streak of 21 consecutive – and has been a staple on the offensive line. With his absence – among others – BYU was left thin at the offensive line during spring ball.
The lack of depth led to BYU bringing in two graduate transfers from SUU in Andrew Eide and Keyan Norman to help bolster up the offensive line.
Eide is currently enrolled at BYU and is working out with the team.
The post-spring depth chart had the starters listed as Brad Wilcox – LT, Ului Lapuaho – LG, Parker Dawe – C, Tuni Kanuch – RG, Austin Hoyt – RT.
BYU also saw the return’s of two other offensive stars earlier this season in Jamaal Williams and Taysom Hill. Their experience and leadership should be able to help as the new staff prepares for their first season at BYU.
