Two Dixie Junior College players have signed national letters of intent to enroll at Brigham Young University, BYU recruiting coordinator Chris Pella said Wednesday.
The two are wide receiver Brent Nyberg, a 1988 National Junior College Athletic Association All-America pick, and defensive lineman Rich Kaufusi, a NJCAA academic All-American.The 6-foot-2 Nyberg, a native of St. George, caught 79 passes for 1,062 yards and 10 touchdowns last fall. He led the league in receptions and ranked fourth in the NJCAA. The 6-5, 265-pound Kaufusi, from Salt Lake City, led Dixie JC last season with 11 sacks. He also had 61 tackles, tops for a Dixie lineman. His brother, Steve Kaufusi, was a defensive tackle at BYU from 1985 through 1987.
