Too bad. Unreasonable expectations out of high school and by college fans. Hope this one works out better than the last 2 stops. he did get his degree. . . congrats, a college degree will take him further than football.


Good Luck Jake

Enough of the comments about this kid's premature celebration out of high school, his lack of work ethic, lack of good coaching and (my favorite) poor parenting as a kid growing up....you posters have NO IDEA what is going on with Jake OR the program. There seem to be so many judgmental BYU and Utah fans (why the Utes even care is beyond me).

So things didn't play out for this kid the way he had dreamed. Big deal. Have any of you ever banked on some dream going big only to see it fall flat? Anyone ever celebrate prematurely?? I say let the kid go do what he wants. His life has no bearing on yours or mine. I wish him well and am happy for him that he got his degree.

Hoping for the best. Go get 'em Jake!

Good luck Jake. When I was a kid I remember watching George Mira play QB for the Canes on TV. Mira threw bullets, Jake is the same way. I hope he finds success.

Salt Lake City, UT

Wow! From Sammamish, Washington to Miami, Florida. Talk about working your way across the country!

I wish him well.

All the best to Heaps. Here's hoping he gets one great year at Miami. He deserves it.

And Jake - thanks for giving the Y a great effort. I wish we would have done better by you - and all Y fans are cheering for you.

Didn't he lose to the real U 54-10?

Jake will be competing with four other quarterbacks, but none of them have ever taken a snap in an actual game. He should have a good supporting cast around him. This could be a good opportunity for him.

Jake did great under Robert Anae. He set all kinds of records as a freshman at BYU. One can only wonder what would have happened if Anae had not headed to Arizona, but that is sand under the bridge (sand, in Arizona at least).

I am not surprised he did not do well on a team with little or no talent surrounding him.

Best of luck Mr. Heaps. I hope you have a fantastic year in Miami and fulfill your dream of becoming an NFL QB.

Go get'em Jake you are a class act.

Very strange chain-of-events. He is not good enough for "red dancing shoes" U but is good enough for a perennial national champion. It looks like Miami still passes the ball. Charlie Weis from the Patriots realizes the "handwriting is on the wall" for the new type of running quarterback even though he coached Tom Brady. Charlie has to win quickly or a new coach will bring in a runner for him.

When is the press conference?
