    Does anybody know why Tuitele did not graduate early & enroll at U-Dub early to participate in spring ball like Sama Pa’ama?

    I know a family friend that’s close to them. I asked the same question. They said he wanted to finish school and enjoy being a HS student 1 last time.

    Maybe he just wants to enjoy his high school days. Can’t blame him for that. I think he should catch up real quick once he gets there.
