Kipeli Koniseti
ATH, 6'3, 235 LBS
FR, Sacramento, California (Grant HS)

Lookin' good. QB in HS - LB in college?

Overview/Scouting Report
Versatile, tough athlete that guided one of the top teams in California. Starred at quarterback for Grant and has the size and athleticism to be an excellent linebacker. A tough, courageous player with a tremendous will to win. Somewhat of an enigma due to his rough, rough profile as a QB - many colleges shied away from him despite his physical prowess.

Rated as the No. 93 quarterback in the nation by That is about it. Not scouted by other outlets.

The Decision
Chose ASU over San Jose State, committed to ASU on February 4, 2009, National Letter of Intent Signing Day

The Verdict?
An interesting player that not much is known about. Clearly not a college level prospect as a QB or RB, he will probably find his home as a freaky athletic LB or a SS. Probably will end up redshirting, but will be interesting to keep an eye on.
