Chicago Bears take BYU's Harvey Unga in supplemental draft

Harvey Unga's first child was born a few weeks ago. He's getting married today. Thanks to the Bears, the former Brigham Young running back now has a means of supporting his young family.

The Bears selected BYU's all-time leading rusher in the seventh round of Thursday's NFL supplemental draft, capping off a tumultuous spring and summer for the BYU standout, who was dismissed from his college team this spring for having sexual relations with someone outside of marriage, which is considered an honor-code violation at the Mormon university.

Unga's fiance, former Wheaton-Warrenville South standout Keilani Moeaki, who played for BYU's basketball team, also voluntarily withdrew from the university. The couple's son was born on July 4. Shortly after learning he had been drafted by the Bears, Unga helped set up the tent where his nuptials will take place today in Provo, Utah.
