Amazing, everybody thought the world of Heaps coming out of High School.
What a complete bust.

Remember when heaps and Apo and stout held a press conference to say they were going to byu to win national title?


Kaysville, UT

Always trying to move on to "greener" pastures

Palo Alto, CA

Good luck Jake!

Hey Chris B they could have totally won a few national Titles.

Kansas and Weiss were a serious mistake. How he was managed at BYU was a mistake. My advice to Jake would be to drop out of football and focus on a career outside of sports.

I feel bad for the guy. I hope goes to a school with a good name and gets a degree that helps him in life after football.



It's almost as amusing as when Brent Casteel said he was going to win the Heisman haha

SUU is a draw with Crowton, but look what Crowton did with another LDS blue chipper in Ben Ohlson.

Poor kid, didn't live up to his own hype. Lost his starting job at BYU to a LB playing QB (older brother to the great "kicker") because the head coach valued toughness over talent. Bad situation from the beginning, should have steered clear of Provo, all together.

At least he didn't have to pay for college.

Remember when Chris B wasn't the first to comment on a BYU football/sports related article? Neither do I! Obsessed, LOL

Jake never has been willing to get gritty and do the work necessary to excel in D-1 football. Lots of talent and natural ability, no work ethic. Classic tale.

Salt Lake City, UT

"set several BYU freshman records in 2010, including passing yards, touchdowns and wins."
"Utah State and Boise State are potential landing spots for Heaps"
Good choices. Heaps was a good QB at the MWC level.

Cedar Hills, UT

Jake got his chance in Kansas but couldn't make it work. Too bad. Feel bad for him and his mom.

Crestucky, FL

Perhaps Heaps should consider coaching.

I feel sorry for Jake. A lot of hype and promise coming out of high school that never seemed to materialize.

If the transferring report is indeed true, then he'd have to transfer to an FCS school to play this fall. Or, if he's on track to graduate from Kansas this spring (he has been in college for four years now), he could transfer to an FBS school.

Jake, go back to BYU, they start a RB as a QB

Hyde Park, UT

Utah State? He would be 3rd string behind Chuckie Keaton and Darrell Garretson.

Highly unlikely!!!

I don't understand how he could transfer to Boise or Utah State. He used his redshirt year already, it seems clear that his only option is to move to a lower division.

I wish Jake the best in all of his future endeavors.

BYU recycled the OC...if bring Heaps back...kind of like Ground Hog Day...

Layton, UT

Jake should finish his degree and become an NFL referee.
