Way to beat out Porttland State on the recruit.

Frisco, TX

Great start to a great recruiting class.

2014 - 2015 - Hill
2016 - 2018 - Mangum
2019 - 2020 - Domena

So were Portland state and Colorado state just some of his offers or all of them? Does anyone know if even one of the 50 or so bcs teams offered him?

Ernest T. Bass
Bountiful, UT

I think he could be totally pretty awesome.

Federal Way, WA

I hope that Mangum ends up returning to BYU. With the change of offensive philosophy, he may end up going elsewhere. Boise State or Washington may now be his best fit.

Not a lot of competition for this player. Remember, some QB become great DB's.

Danbury, CT

I'm more concerned with how well we develop these kids once they get to BYU. We don't have a great record of turning good talent into great talent. Until Bronco hires some coaches that know how to do that, we'll be a mediocre team.

Frisco, TX

cb - is it stars that matter or number of offers? U seem to flip flop whenever it's convenient for you.

Springville, UT

It sounds like BYU has given up on the drop back, pocket passing game.

Cheyenne, WY

According to CBs Philosophy
he is a 3 star quarterback and BYU only gets 1 to 2 stars.
Same thing happened with Fred Warner last year. He committed early then the Pac came with offers later on.
Guy will be offered by several pac schools by signing day.

Spanish Fork, UT

Everyone knows now that BYU is recruiting someone Utah will be offering him a scholarship today!

Salt Lake City, UT

re: BeSmart

Chris B has a point. If a 3 star prospect who lives in P12 country & 3 his best offers were as listed. What does does that really say about the player?

Chandler, AZ

Chris B might have had a point if he hadn't referenced "BCS schools". There is no BCS.

Cheyenne, WY

@ Pendergast
You have to look at the situation.
Oregon has offered 55 scholarships already for next year. Not a single 3-star recruit.
USC has offered 79 with 2-3 star recruits.
Big name schools do not offer 3 star recruits this early. As high players commit lower ranked players receive high offers
Utah has offered 82 scholarships and about half are 3 star guys (shows a big difference in quality of programs)
Fred Warner last year was an early three star commit who had early offers from BYU an New Mexico State, but by the end 7 pac schools had offered him.
I am not saying this kid is the next Mariota but he will have Pac-12 offers by signing day like most 3 star kids get.

@be "smart" - Can you back up your claim I've ever said byu only gets 1-2 stars?

You wouldn't make things up would you?

Interesting you note Utah and how many offers are 3 stars guys and then leave out byU? Are their numbers ever worse than Utah's if you're saying Utah's show a big difference in quality? Typical byu fan

Highland, UT

As for the kid himself, well just like all of the rest of you I really don't know anything about him other than what has been written, so just like christina I don't have a clue if he'll be a good player or not, but it is obvious that BYU is looking at a different type of QB these days. They are now recruiting dual threat types.

Cheyenne, WY

From Feb 27
"A good coach can turn a team full of 1-2 stars nobodies into national champions.

Oct. 10th
"Some byu fans try to convince themselves that 1-2 star byu kids are just as talented as 4 star Alabama players because stars don't mean anything."
Want more references?

J. Richardson

To the Ute fans who will read this article in order to write disparaging things about BYU and/or this 3-star recruit, please realize that the U has never, in the history of football, outrecruited the Y when it comes to quarterbacks. That was true when they were in the same conference and it will continue to be true with BYU as an independant, including this instance with this very fine HS QB.

Cheyenne, WY

BYU has made 13 offers and 5 out of the 13 are 4 stars.
Difference is BYU has a two commits that are 4 stars in one of the recruiting outlets.
Utah has 3-3 star commits.

Littleton, CO

There were more players from Portland State in the last Super Bowl than from the U of U.

Provo, UT

Chandler Cox, a 3 star recruit from florida has a recent BYU offer. Checvk him out
