BYU Football: Puka Nacua Enters the Transfer Portal

Post by E-Zone15 »

Lionel Nacua (father) said that he wanted his boys to end up at BYU, before tragically passed away in 2012 (at the age of 45). Story found here; Nacua brothers fulfill deceased father’s wishes by committing to BYU football

Last week Samson Nacua entered the portal as a grad transfer from Utah and today Puka Nacua entered the portal (Washington transfer). It's been rumored that this could be a package deal to BYU for a few months now.

Here is a few write-ups
Can BYU Land Transfers Puka and Samson Nacua?

That would be great. It would had been even better if they were here last year instead of basically missing the last season in the PAC.

It is now official. Both Puka (up to 4 years to play) and Samson (1 year to play) commit to BYU.

Sounds like Samson is getting the additional year as a covid-exception year so he is eligible immediately. Reports made it sound like we need to see if Puka gets a waiver to be immediately eligible or if he has to sit for a year as a transfer.
