Former Missouri quarterback Trent Hosick will visit Provo this weekend as the former Wendy’s High School Heisman national finalist looks for a new home in which to restart his college career.
Hosick found himself fourth on the Mizzou depth chart after spring camp concluded, behind entrenched starter Marty Mauk, junior Corbin Berkstresser and fellow redshirt freshman Eddie Printz.
Trent led Staley high school in Kansas City to the Missouri 5-A state championship as a junior in 2011, scoring four rushing touchdowns in the championship game. He was rated as the No. 19 …
With national letter of intent day in the rear-view mirror, the BYU coaching staff can now turn its attention to preparing for a brand new season. The Cougars will kick off their preparations for 2014 in just three weeks with the opening of spring camp.
The program announced the addition of 20 new recruits to the fold last Wednesday, to go along with 18 returning missionaries who will bolster the roster and help plug some key holes created by the graduation of several seniors from 2013.
Unlike last season when BYU had …
BYU football announced the signing of 20 athletes to national letters of intent on Wednesday.
Unlike other seasons under Bronco Mendenhall’s direction, the Cougars were in the running for several players late in the recruiting process.
Despite some disappointments down the stretch, this group shapes up as a very solid class. BYU had fewer scholarship to offer this year because of the high number of returning missionaries coming into the program for 2014.
That influx of missionaries combined with a handful of recruits who could contribute right away should help solidify some areas …
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 …
This is page three of video highlights of BYU’s 2014 signing class.
The Cougars signed seven players from the state of California, four from Utah, three from Texas, two from Arizona and Kansas, and one each from the states of Alabama and North Carolina.
Three of those recruits are offensive linemen, as BYU has found itself in need of rebuilding and retooling its offensive line.
We begin our highlights on page three with one of those recruits who has been the center on a team that has won two straight state championships in …
The BYU Cougars can’t seem to catch a break in their attempt to fill the open boundary corner position created by the graduation of two-year starter Preston Hadley.
First, junior college transfer and expected starter Trenton Trammell went down with a season-ending ACL tear on the first day of spring practice.
Then last week, freshman Jacob Hannemann was selected in the third round of the Major League Baseball draft, virtually guaranteeing that he will sign with the Chicago Cubs organization and forgo his college football career.
As a talented two-sport athlete, Hannemann was …
Rarely are true freshmen able to come in and make an impact on the offensive line in college football.
At BYU, players like Matt Reynolds and John Tait are a couple of rare athletes who started on the offensive line as freshmen.
But even those guys were redshirt freshmen who had served missions and came to the job as relatively mature student-athletes.
In 2013, the Cougars may find themselves relying on 18-year-old true freshman Brayden Kearsley more than they would like.
According to multiple recruiting sites, the 6-4, 298-pound native of Aloha, Oregon comes …
Bronco Mendenhall has had a number of true freshmen make an impact on his team during his tenure as the head football coach at BYU.
Current players like Daniel Sorensen, Craig Bills, Eathyn Manumaleuna, Jamaal Williams, Mike Alisa and Spencer Hadley all made significant contributions as true freshmen in recent years.
Despite the lowering of the mission age by the LDS Church–allowing prospective missionaries to leave at 18 instead of waiting until 19–and a large number of junior college transfers set to enter the program this fall, there are still a handful …
When BYU announced the signing of basketball recruit Frank Bartley of Future College Prep in Carson, California on Monday, it took Cougar nation by surprise.
Bartley wasn’t on the radar screen of any of the media that typically covers BYU recruiting. The main reason for that is that he just recently ended up on the radar screen of the BYU coaches themselves. As recent as just a couple of months ago.
The Cougar staff was recruiting Bartley’s teammate Warren Sledge, who ended up signing with The Citadel, when they spotted the Baton …
He’s still five weeks away from graduating from high school, but Lone Peak center Eric Mika has already turned his focus towards Provo and BYU– a place where he will try to fill the shoes of All-WCC post player Brandon Davies next season.
The 6-10, 225-pound future freshman will enter the BYU program as the nation’s No. 3-ranked center for the class of 2013. He will also come to campus with state and national championships in his back pocket.
This past season, Mika was a dominating force on a team that destroyed …
