KAHUKU, HI - Shiloah Te'o, a 5-foot-11, 212-pound safety/rover who played for BYU in 2008 and the first five games of 2009, is transferring to Oregon State next month, according to his father David.

For the Beavs, it's Te'o time, although it won't begin in earnest until 2011.

According David, his son has been admitted to Oregon State and will enroll at OSU for a summer session beginning on June 21st.

NCAA rules stipulate a player must sit out a year, so Te'o will have 2-to-play-2 beginning in 2011.

Te'o was slated to be a starter this upcoming season but was dismissed from BYU in the beginning of October of 2009 for an undisclosed violation of team rules. ESPN reported at the time that Provo City Justice Court records showed that Te'o was charged Sept. 18, 2009 with driving under the influence from an arrest in August. The Mormon church-owned school has an honor code which forbids drinking alcohol.

Coming out of Kahuku High in 2008, Te'o was ranked three stars and the No. 61 safety prospect nationally.

He was a Honolulu Star-Bulletin First-Team All-State selection and First-Team All-State pick by The Honolulu Advertiser as both a junior and senior.

Te'o was also named Oahu Interscholastic Association Red East Division Defensive Player of the Year his senior campaign, and reportedly held offers from BYU, Utah, Hawaii and UNLV.
