Austin is a great kid and is going to make every Y fan very happy. Good luck Austin!

Murray, UT

Alot of depth at the MLB position will make for some good healthy competition at the position this fall.

"BYU has a tradition of standout middle linebackers. Players such as Shay Muirbrook, Rob Morris, Cameron Jensen and Kelly Poppinga, among others, have helped build a strong middle linebacker tradition for the Cougar football program through the years."

Add Heimuli and Kyle Whittingham before them.

Can you imagine a kid saying "utah is the only place I would play. If utah hadn't offered me and others did I probably wouldn't be playing college football at all."

No kid feels that way. That could only happen at BYU.


Eagle Mountain, UT

Looking forward to seeing this kid play. BYU LB's are always excellent.

The future continues to look bright as we attract outstanding talent.

When I saw the title of this article I thought it was about baseball (MLB). I'm glad, though, that it was about football.

I love the depth we have at LB this year. Did anyone else see that Uona Kaveinga was named to the Rivals All-Spring Practice team? He along with Heder and others will make for one of the best LB corps in the country. In regards to Kaveinga:

USC talent + Bronco coaching = Utesies shivering in their boots

We love the BYU linebacker tradition. They tear your head off and then come visit you in the hospital!

Utah will have one of the best linebacker groups in the entire nation, with 3 players that will be playing in the NFL.

Highland, UT


I'm not sure if you are a utah "fan" that is making serious comments or else a BYU fan making utah fans look foolish but either way....LOL!

Sandy, UT

laugh it up ducky, looking forward to another 1-4 start?

"looking forward to another 1-4 start?"

A 1-4 start would not be a shocker and 1-6 isn't out of the realm of possibility, when you consider

at USC
at BYU
Arizona State
at Pittsburgh
at California

are all very loseable games for the Utes, especially if Wynn plays like he did at the end of last season.

Just be glad U have Montana State at home to start the season.

@Hondo - From what I've read Kaveinga is going to be a strong asset to your Cougars, but I don't know if you should be bragging about his nomination to the Rivals All-Spring practice team. Do you think Kaveinga ran home to add that to his resume?

Highland, UT


Oh I am laughing it up. Thanks for being there. LOL

@ Ken

If your talking about LB's like Chaz Walker, Boo Anderson and JJ Williams...That's laughable, the won't be even crack the 2nd or 3rd all conference defensive team in the 12 PAC this year, let alone be one of the best LBing corp in the nation.

Tempe, AZ

@Troll Hunter - Ken is not a Utah fan. He's a BYU fan pretending to be a Utah fan and you fell for it.

DevilishUte, You may be right. Just as you fell for Hondo.

Tempe, AZ

@Ted H. - You may be right about Hondo. If so, touche'.

In any event Hondo mentioned a real nomination. Kaveinga was selected to the Rivals All-Spring practice squad. He seems like a nice add for the Cougars (as much as I wish that weren't the case).
