The old christmas red is now blue.


Dick Harmon was correct sir.


It's very good for Cougars.

nice work Heaps

It is because he is a Mormon. Good mormons go to BYU.


Best of luck and lets hope that everyone can be respectful when discussing a 17 yr olds life decision.

Go cougs

Good work.....

This is a good day for BYU faithful. This is good for the state of Utah and the MWC at large.


How great is this for state football? Lets hope the Utes and Cougars both maintain their winning ways. The games are so much more exciting when both teams have legitimate BCS aspirations.

Go Cougars!


Weird thing is, if they want to win a national championship why did they go to BYU. If they want a good education or a good experience then BYU is a good choice. I am not a BYU hater like a lot of you but there is not a chance any of them are going to win a championship at BYU.

The impact of this kid signing has already played out with 2 blue chippers signing on with him. Apo decommits from Texas? Wow - this Heaps kid is pretty persuasive. And Stout is the #5 Middle Linebacker in the Nation. Looks like the Cougs defense got a much needed boost as well.

Colo Coug

This is a very exciting announcement. It will be great for both the boys and the football program. Go Cougs!!!

RE: Fan

Heaps chances of winning a NC with BYU is hire than it is with Washingtons program. Besides if the kids are good enough and they get enough of them, then they bring the National Champion title to them selves. But its not all about a National Champion ship. If thats all Heaps was after he could have accepted Oklahomas offer.


I must say...congrats! I've looked online at his highlight video. Terriffic arm and athleticism. The kid de-committing from Texas to BYU?

I just experienced the "un-expected" Heaps said.

Look forward to his first game against Utah whether it is at Rice Eccles or Lavell Edwards Stadium.

ALERT TOM HOLMOE, I would not schedule Univ of Washington anytime soon, within the next 4-8 years (depending on mission, red shirt, etc)

To Yewt fans

Take that--the Cougars are officially back!!

Oregon Cougar

Good for the MWC.

Cougar fans

Dick was correct??? Manti Teo is coming to BYU afterall???


This is music to my ears after several disapointments over the last few years in recruiting. This could be a recruiting class to remember. To also get the kid from Texas and California that is exciting for Cougar fans.

Great players !!

Great players get noticed from the pros no matter where they play, just ask Jerry Rice and many others. Look out BYU opponents! Cause we are the cougars of BYU!!!!

CA Coug?

Is Apo really a blue chip signing? He is a 3 star on scout and ranked near 60th in the receiver position. I thought you had to be a five star commit to really be considered a blue chip


ESPN QUOTE!: "BYU took one day to go from OK to having one of the better recruiting classes in the country!"
