Pili is a multi-talented player who plays on both sides of the ball. On offense, the Bulldog coaches use Pili's speed and quickness as a tight end. On the defensive side of the ball, where he'll play at the college level, Pili doubles as a linebacker and speed-rush defensive end.
Upon receiving a full-ride offer from Coach Mendenhall this past summer, Pili quickly committed to BYU. He is a member of the LDS faith and will serve a mission. Pili is the second BYU commit – Arizona wide receiver Josh Weeks being the first – to be recently named as one of the top football prospects in their perspective states.
Congratulations to Pili on being named one of Nevada's overall top 25 football players. BYU is getting a good one in Trajan Pili.
