It’s uncommon for us to write up a post previewing another post. Then again, this is an uncommon story with no real template, so here we are.
After keeping silent for the past few days outside of a statement, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o is breaking his silence on the Lennay Kekua hoax story. Specifically, he’s breaking it in an off-camera interview to ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap. Details of the interview are expected to come some time later tonight.
ESPN PR has released this photo of the session.
Obviously, we’ll have more as it develops, so stay tuned.
If for any reason you need to get caught up on what’s going on, here’s our original post on the Te’o story (and the story itself) along with thoughts from Jack Swarbrick’s press conference and the development today from “Outside the Lines.“
