In the first clip released from his forthcoming interview with Katie Couric, Notre Dame quarterback Manti Te’o admits to lying briefly after discovering that he had been hoaxed.
“Katie, put yourself in my situation. I, my whole world told me that she died on Sept. 12. Everybody knew that. This girl, who I committed myself to, died on Sept. 12. Now I get a phone call on Dec. 6, saying that she’s alive and then I’m going be put on national TV two days later. And to ask me about the same question. You know, what would you do?”
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
Do you believe Te’o?
