Doman on whether he was in on Te'o's recruitment:
"I was, yeah. I know him and I have been in his house. We fought all the way to the end. I was in Hawaii there the last week of recruiting, trying to get him to come to BYU."
BYU tight end Kaneakua Friel, who is also from Hawaii, on whether he knows Te'o:
"I only know him from high school. I played against him in high school. I went to Kamehameha High School and he went to Punahou. So I only know him from playing across the line.
He used to play outside linebacker, and I used to play tight end. So we used to play against each other pretty much half the game.
He was a year younger than myself. Now he is a year older than me in eligibility, because I went on a mission. So it is going to be a good game.
He was not as big as he is now in high school. I feel like he is just as fast and more aggressive. So, I have gained some size. I don't know if I am faster. I feel like it will be a good matchup.
Him, a great, great player in the nation, going against our front. He's a great player. I respect him."
Friel on whether he figured Te'o would be that good:
"He was a good player in high school. One thing I always loved about him is he always pursued to the ball. He was a very passionate player and no matter where the ball was thrown, or no matter where it was run away from him, he was always chasing it down and that contributes to the amount of tackles he has now and the number he has had the last couple of years.
He is just another player. We can't let that hype get into our heads. He is just another guy."
