Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o told the NFL Network on Friday that he will address the media on Saturday. Te'o said he will participate in all the workouts and that he is undecided if he will attend the NFL Draft in April. Te'o made headlines in the fall when it was reported that his girlfriend died on the same day that his grandmother died. Months later, news broke that the girlfriend never existed. A 22-year-old California man, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, eventually admitted that he created the fictional Lennay Kekua, and that he engaged in a lengthy "relationship" with Te'o via phone and text. Both Tuiasosopo and Te'o said that the linebacker was never in on the hoax. It's unclear whether the hoax will impact Te'o's draft status.
