Brigham Young's football program picked up two more oral commitments over the weekend from prospects who were on campus for its annual Junior Day.
Jesse Taufi, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive lineman from Long Beach Community College in California, said Friday he plans on joining the program. Taufi is the cousin of Cougar lineman Russell Tialevea and will play this fall for Long Beach before joining BYU in 2008.
Saturday, BYU coaches received a commitment from Timpview linebacker/running back Michael Alisa, who began his prep career at Kahuku High in Hawaii. Alisa started on defense for the state champion Thunderbirds last year and backed up all-stater Jackson Owen at running back
