Katie Couric has just scored one of the most sought after interviews of 2013 thus far! After speaking with ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap off camera, Manti Teo will finally go on camera to talk about the recent girlfriend hoax controversy with the Couric.

During the interview with Jeremy Schaap, Te’o admitted he handled the Lennay Kekua situation distastefully … but maintained he was completely innocent and in no way involved the hoax.

The Notre Dame linebacker told Schaap he only realized for sure this past week that he was being duped.

According to ABC News, Couric will sit down with Te’o and his parents, Brian and Ottilia Te’o. The interview will air this Thursday.
