Southeast's Tuioti commits to Nevada

Omaha North vs. Lincoln Southeast, 11.1

Lincoln Southeast's Teivis Tuioti celebrates his first-quarter tackle against Omaha North in November during a Class A first-round playoff game at Seacrest Field.

Lincoln Southeast standout defensive tackle Teivis Tuioti has verbally committed to play his college football at Nevada beginning next season.

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Tuioti, the son of Nebraska defensive line coach Tony Tuioti, made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday morning. The senior chose Nevada over offers from Idaho State and Army.

In his first and only season at Southeast, Tuioti helped the Knights go 9-2 and reach the Class A quarterfinals by registering 73 tackles and two quarterback sacks. He played his sophomore and junior seasons in Berkeley, California, and his freshman season in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
