Former BYU running back Harvey Unga has officially declared for the NFL Supplemental Draft to be held next month.

Harvey is spending several hours a week working out to prepare himself for what he hopes will be a successful attempt at making an NFL roster this coming season.

Unga made national news shortly after BYU’s spring football camp when he removed himself from BYU for violating the school’s honor code. His attempt to return to BYU in time to resume his college football playing career was later denied by the university.

Unga and his agent Eric Metz, who has represented several other former Cougars, are in contact with multiple teams who are expressing interest in BYU’s all-time leading rusher. In fact, Unga recently spent over an hour on the phone speaking with the front office brass of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Teams that use a pick in this year’s supplemental draft must surrender a pick in next April’s draft, making it difficult for players in Unga’s situation.

In addition to his training regimen, Unga is also taking a big step in his life this weekend. He and his fiance, Keilani Moeaki, will be married in a ceremony to be held in the Chicago area.

In an exclusive interview with Deep Shades of Blue, Unga talks for the first time since leaving BYU about his plans for the future.
