BYU Signing Day: Player Videos — Page 2
Welcome to page two of our video highlights of the 2014 BYU football recruiting class.
The Cougars appear to have signed a very solid group of student athletes on national letter of intent day, including seventeen high school players and three transfers.
All three transfers are wide receivers who should be able to step in and make immediate contributions and help offset the loss of seniors Cody Hoffman, J.D. Falslev and Skyler Ridley.
However, we begin page two with a wide receiver who may also contribute–straight out of high school. He’s the son of a former BYU great and his exploits on video have caused a buzz among Cougar fans…
WR Trey Dye (5-9, 175 Fr.) Abilene, TX (Cooper HS)
Trey is the son of former BYU star James Dye. He was one of the top running backs in West Texas this past season and projects as a receiver and return man for the Cougars. He committed to BYU last February. Dye is a little bigger than his father, but still flashes some of the speed and athleticism that made James a productive receiver and the nation’s best kick returner in 1995-96.
S Kavika Fonua (5-11, 185 Fr.) Syracuse, UT (Syracuse HS)
Fonua is one of the top recruits coming out of Utah this year. He was tabbed as the No. 1 safety prospect in the state and had one of the better SPARQ scores in the country last summer. He was the MVP among the defensive backs at the Nike camp held at Oregon. In addition to the Cougars, he was also offered a scholarship by in-state rival Utah.

Teancum “Tico” Fuga (6-1, 280 Fr.) Huntington Beach, CA (Edison HS)
Tico is the younger brother of former BYU standout Romney Fuga. Like his older brother, Teancum is projected as a two-gap nose tackle at the next level. He started the year under the radar as a recruit, but finished the season rated as a three-star prospect. He told DSB this summer that he was also offered by Utah and Utah State.
NT Jaterrius Gulley (6-3, 325 Fr.) Hoover, AL (Hoover HS)
Gulley was a key factor in Hoover High School winning the 6-A state championship in Alabama this year. He was a late offer by the Cougars and will look to make a contribution at nose tackle as a true freshman. He could be one of the under-the-radar guys who makes an real impact. He was also offered scholarships by FBS schools Memphis, Southeast Louisiana, UAB and Western Kentucky.
OT Chandon Herring (6-7, 270 Fr.) Gilbert, AZ (Perry HS)
Herring impressed BYU coaches when visiting for camps over the past couple of years and committed to the Cougars last June. He was ranked among the top 20 offensive linemen in the state of Arizona and is a towering prospect at nearly 6-foot-8. He may be a bit of a project at the next level, but could develop into a contributor at a position of need for the Cougars.

DB Isaiah Kaufusi (6-2, 185 Fr.) Salt Lake City, UT (Brighton HS)
Kaufusi was a late commitment, deciding on BYU this week. The Brighton High star was offered by all of the in-state FBS schools in Utah as well as Hawaii. He has family ties to both BYU and Utah and is considered a big win for the Cougars. He could play either linebacker or safety in Provo.
