Tevita Finau Saga Finally Over At WVU

From the "saw this one coming" file, highly touted recruit Tevita Finau is finally done in Morgantown.  Hoppy Kerchival and WV MetroNews are reporting that Finau, who has been in Morgantown for over a year but not enrolled in classes, has informed West Virginia University of his intention to enroll at a different school.


Finau, a highly recruited Junior College Defensive End had signed multiple letters of intent to play for the Mountaineers but has struggled to become academically eligible.  By enrolling at a different school in a lower division, Finau can become immediately eligible to play. No one on the WVU football staff, in the crowd, or on the internet expected Finau to make it onto the field this season, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise to anyone.
