When the Teuhema brothers both dropped Texas on the same day, everybody in the southeast was licking their chops.

It was nearly inevitable they’d be a package deal. Sione, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound defensive end, is a high-end three-star prospect for 2014, while younger brother Maea is rated the No. 21 prospect in America for 2015–a solid five-star offensive tackle recruit.

Well, on Wednesday, Sione signed a letter of intent with LSU, and Maea made a commitment that was mostly overshadowed by all of the 2014 signing news going on during the day. But make no mistake, Maea is one of the cornerstones of what is already an incredible 2015 group for the Tigers. So far, the Tigers have the No. 1 prospect in America in Jacksonville (Fla.) DB Kevin Toliver, and now they have another five-star prospect. The class has six players overall.

The Teuhemas are from Keller (Texas).
