Manti T’eo, the Notre Dame linebacker who had a fantastic regular season, but then had his life flipped upside down when it was revealed the dead girlfriend he told the media about was fake, is going to the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers are in need of lots of things, and linebacker was one of them. 36 year old Takeo Spikes was starting for them last year, along side Donald Butler.
Te’o is from Hawaii, but has lots of connections to Southern California. He even had an imaginary girlfriend who lived there.
