PROVO — BYU is adding yet another wide receiver to its roster.
Keanu Nelson, a 5-foot-11, 184-pound senior from Stanford, has signed a scholarship agreement with the Cougars, coach Bronco Mendenhall announced Monday.
Nelson graduates from Stanford this spring with a bachelor's degree in science, technology and society and will have one year of eligibility at BYU.
"We look forward to having Keanu join our program," Mendenhall said in a statement. "He is a talented athlete and his high football IQ should serve him well during his transition while preparing to contribute to our team this season."
Nelson is one of several receivers that have, or will, join the program this season, including transfers Nick Kurtz, Jordan Leslie and Devon Blackmon, and freshman Trey Dye.
A Tucson, Ariz., native, Nelson caught 61 passes for 1,135 yards and eight touchdowns as a high school senior, and he finished with 2,065 rushing yards and 31 rushing TDs as well as 994 career punt return yards during his prep career.
Nelson caught one pass for 4 yards last season at Stanford.
