PROVO — High school linemen Elia and Enoka Migao, who are twins, decided a while ago that they would like to be package deal when choosing a college football team.

BYU became the grateful recipient of that agreement on Tuesday.

The brothers from Chaparral High in Temecula, California, committed to the Cougars and will be part of BYU’s 2021 signing class. They are 16 years old.

Both are three-star recruits, according to 247sports.com, and both are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints considering church missions before enrolling.

Elia Migao is a 6-foot-2, 320-pound offensive lineman with reported offers from Oregon, Michigan State, Nebraska, Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State, Washington State and others, according to 247sports.com.

Elia Migao credited BYU offensive line coach Eric Mateos and head coach Kalani Sitake for recruiting him to BYU.

Enoka Migao plays defensive end and stands three inches taller than his fraternal twin, checking in at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds. He had offers from Colorado, Arizona, Michigan State, Oregon State and others.

BYU now has 10 commitments from the class of 2021, which will begin signing in December.

The other commits are:

• Raider Damuni, an athlete from Provo’s Timpview High School and the son of BYU assistant recruiting coordinator Jack Damuni.

• Kyson Hall, a wide receiver from Spanish Fork’s Maple Mountain High and brother of current BYU quarterback Jaren Hall.

• Ricky Wolfgramm, a linebacker from East High in Salt Lake City.

• Bentley Redden, a linebacker from San Clemente, California.

• Jovesa Damuni, a defensive back from the new Ridgeline High in the Cache Valley and the cousin of Raider Damuni.

• Quenton Rice, a wide receiver from Las Vegas (Faith Lutheran High) and the son of former BYU defensive back Rodney Rice.

• Nathan Hoke, a linebacker from Pennsylvania (North Allegheny High School) and the son of former BYU defensive tackle Chris Hoke.
