Brigham Young's squeaky-clean image is taking a hit. There are allegations that involve consumption of alcohol — a violation of the honor code — during the weekend of Jan. 10-11, when 24 recruits were on campus.
The allegations started after hotshot linebacker Manti Te'o of Honolulu's Punahou High called Bronco Mendenhall last Saturday and said he had crossed BYU off his list.
Te'o, named the high school player of the year by the Sporting News, was among the recruits visiting Provo that weekend. Te'o, a Latter Day Saint, has three cousins at the school and BYU was once his college of choice.
