2016 San Jose State football recruiting: Spartans get JUCO OLB's

Two OLB brothers sign with the Spartans.

Quick Bio

Sitiveni is the twin brother of fellow San Jose State 2016 commit Suliasi. Although he is not as highly touted as his twin brother, Sitiveni still holds the same offer list as Suliasi. This has probably has more to do with the fact that getting these two would be a "package deal". Playing at junior college Mt. San Antonio College, Sitiveni wasn't recruited out of high school to play college football. They actually played rugby for two years before trying junior college football.

Per Scout, the Tamaiveni brother's explain why they chose the Spartans:

"We're really known for our pressure, we get a lot of pressure," Suliasi said of the brothers' strength. "San Jose State, they have the No. 1 pass defense, so all they need is some pressure and that's what me and (Sitiveni) are good at. We thought if they can hang on to the receivers for a while, that's more time for us to get to the quarterback."
