What Te’o said to try to explain girlfriend hoax
Question of the Day
Q: SO, IF IT WASN’T TE'O, WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HOAX?
The Deadspin story pointed to Tuiasosopo as being most involved, and Te'o said that the 22-year-old contacted him on Jan. 16 to apologize.
Te'o said the message went like this: “I have two people that I want to come clean with and that’s you and your family. I’m not going to say anything to the press. I just want you to know the truth. And God bless, and blah, blah, blah.”
Tuiasosopo has not yet spoken publicly about the situation.
Q: WHAT NEXT?
A: It seems no laws were broken, and Te'o has given no indication he wants to pursue a civil suit against the pranksters. Unless someone comes forward to refute Te'o’s claims, or new evidence is unearthed contradicting what he has said, the next people he’ll need to answer to are NFL coaches and executives.
Te'o will likely attend the combine in February and there he will start doing job interviews with prospective new employers. He has been projected as a potential high first-round pick. The first round is held the night of April 25 in New York City.
