It would be interesting to know if Cal has any scholarship player in any sport who has a lower or the same entering GPA and SAT score than McTyer. I'll bet that their high academic standard fits best when it serves their recruitment needs.

Your Football team was 5-7. (No Bowel).
Your Basketball team is 9-11 (1-7 in the Pac)

Get back to us when the U can compete, in any sport.

The ones I am most happy for are the cougar fans. For so many years it seemed like BYU recruiting was 90% done by June. And the only excitement in the last month or so was in getting two star recruits who had no other offers. (Two years ago they signed 5 in January that fit that profile) I felt the cougar fans missed the highs and lows that I loved in the last minute recruiting activity. (This year with four days to go I feel the Utes could lose two 3 star recruits and or gain a three star and a four star) Including this recruit, two mentioned in another article, and a rumored tweet the Y could add three three star recruits (and one more that only two of the 4 services had on their data base) Good Luck - and I hape the fans are enjoying the moment!

You think his dad would tell his son why bother going Wyo?

I understand that Torry dad would come back and go for Master Degree while he plays at BYU. Would love to have them both here.

My Cougar friends, why bother reading Chris B. nonsense stuff he posts, just don't read them or respond to him or is it her.

A classy post...

Navel vet, don't worry about Rival's current ranking and his speed. If he comes to BYU those numbers will all be downgraded before the ink is dry on his LOI. We all know the validity of Rivals' rankings for any player who shows interest in BYU. About as valid as a White House press release.

I would be great to see fans post intelligent, non-hateful comments. I'm a BYU fan all the way. There is no good reason to say demeaning things about any university. Of course, if he can play like his father I certainly hope he comes to BYU.

Makes me wonder why BYU wasn't on him much earlier, like a year or two ago.

Hes going to be so awesome I can just feel it.

Offer this Cougar... don't let someone else slip him out from under us. What are we waiting for? I will be sick if we finally offer him, and he says too late... I already committed.

If BYU's 2013 schedule is indicative of future schedules, this kid would be crazy to choose Colorado St or Wyoming over BYU. Seems any highly competitive athlete should rather be competing against schools like Texas, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, etc., than the typical MWC schedule. Also, while I would not choose to live in Provo, it's got to be better than Laramie.

Torry was just offered to Wyoming. I hope BYU offers soon. Would be great.

Bluffdale, UT

I am convinced that Chris B. is the moderator or he/she works for the Dnews. He posts stuff that no one else could get away with posting.

Cougars1 - you are correct. DN gives Chris B a major pass. There is no freedom of speech unless you start your post as "Chris B".

Torry - if you like playing in 10 degrees, 15 mph north wind, and 4 inches of snow, then Wyoming is the perfect place for you.

Would love to have you in Provo if you decide to pass on the Cowboys.

Cal won't take him academically but byU will? Impossible."

While I understand that a Ute grad's neck probably becomes sore from looking upward, the academic standards at Cal are even higher than they are at BYU...

Tom in CA-
15 mph north wind. That's a beautiful, calm day here in Wyoming. It's typically more like 30-40 mph winds- & you're correct about 10 degrees, although you need to factor in the wind chill.

Don't get me wrong- I love it in my corner of Wyoming, but wouldn't want to play football in Laramie.
