INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Manti Te'o wants everyone to know he's over the embarrassment of an online hoax, and he's ready to focus on football.
The Heisman Trophy runner-up acknowledges he could have done things to avoid a public spectacle. But he says if he was still embarrassed by it, he wouldn't have taken questions Saturday at the NFL's annual scouting combine.
Instead, nearly two dozen television cameras and a room full of reporters were capturing every word out of Te'o's mouth as he again tried to explain how he was duped into believing a girlfriend that never existed died last fall.
It was the largest group of reporters Te'o has faced since the story broke last month
More than 300 players, including Te'o, are in Indy this weekend to work out for NFL scouts.
