Could USC linebacker be transferring to BYU?

There have been rumblings and rumors about USC linebacker Uona Kaveinga transferring to BYU.

Kaveinga, who has been in Las Vegas this weekend, committed to the Cougars before deciding to sign with the Trojans as part of the 2008 recruiting class.

Coach Bronco Mendenhall can’t talk publicly about Kaveinga until a transfer is official, but he did have this to say during this morning’s Las Vegas Bowl press conference while addressing questions about mid-year transfers and high school early enrollees: “We have young man who is considering transferring from another Division I school. He wouldn’t be placed on scholarship right away. When we get back in January, and I can’t tell you if he’s coming for sure or not, but that would be noteworthy if he chooses to come at that point.”

Obviously, if Kaveinga were to transfer to BYU, it would be a coup for the Cougar defense.
