BYU football! Why would you play for anybody else! Go BYU!!!

Don't Feed the Trolls
Salt Lake City, UT

One of the biggest reasons to play for BYU is the unrelentingly loyal fans -- like Chris B.

Salt Lake City, UT

A man after my own heart. If I had been talented enough to play college football at the Division I level, BYU would have been my only choice. But, alas, my fate only has allowed me to be a vocal and loyal (and admittedly sometimes annoying) fan. I look forward to seeing Trey play. May he carry one the legacy that his father left. Go Cougars!

His dad sure was fast.

And shifty.

What about getting the leading receiver and rusher to come to BYU?

Ah James Dye. Most notable in my memory for his contributions to Utah State as a RB/WR in 1996 alongside Profail Grier.

Then he transferred to BYU to return kicks. USU missed him. With the coaching changes at the time who can blame him?

Correction to Mr. Dye:

Cougar Stadium sells out when Utah comes to town and for Stadium of Fire. Not 65,000 each game.

The rest of the games do not sell out. Look it up.

Who am I sir?

Two star rated; one offer. The title says it all.

I did look it up, KamUte. BYU averages 96% capacity, and has higher attendance than all but two Pac-12 schools. I think we can forgive Trey's rounding from 61.5k to the more-typical 65k. It's been there before, and it'll be there again.

Why do you care?

Spokane Ute
Spokane, WA

He signed with and plans on playing for the school he always wanted ind intended to. He also is standing by his comitment. Good for him on both points!

Lindon, UT

They are closer to a sell out than RES. LOL

Missouri Coug
Greenwood, MO

He's as quick as "a flea on a hot stove"...He will be a great player with his quickness and speed.

DEW Cougars
Sandy, UT

Again, welcome aboard Trey. Your dad was awsome but I hope you will be better than your dad in all positions which I think he would agreed. Can you play DB as well which I think it would be a plus? Whenever you come, 2014 or 2016 Go Dye and Go Cougars!

Orem, UT

I remember his dad well. What a great player! I also remember the signs in the stands to the opposing team, "You punt, you Dye!"


@KamUte Really??? You want to talk about sell outs? BYU still puts more people in the stands when it doesn't sell out than the 45K RES holds. I wasn't really shocked at the Ute bandwagon fans this year when the last game of the year against your "rival" Colorado, there were plenty of red seats. BYU had more fans against Idaho State during a downpour, than your game against Colorado. As the Utes continue to struggle in the PAC10+2, you will see more and more red seats at games.

Happy for this young man and the opportunity he's getting.
Best of luck and finish your degree.

Marysville, WA

Seeing players like this who want to come here and who commit as soon as they're offered is one of a hundred things I love about BYU, and what keeps me a rabid BYU sports fan.

Great young man, from a family who loves and appreciated what BYU did for them, and has built that love into their son. Quoting from an earlier article: “I was starting to hear a lot from Utah, Utah State, Texas Tech and some other schools, but I didn’t grow up dreaming of playing for any of those schools — I grew up dreaming about playing for BYU, so why wait around to see what offers I could get?”

Looking forward to cheering you on, Trey


I remember Dye returning a punt vs Baylor when he still an Aggie for a touchdown to help the Ags beat the Bears at home. Good to see his boy will be playing in the state anyway.
