Brandon Gurney is reporting that Dylan Collie, the younger brother of Austin Collie, has committed to play for Bronco Mendenhall and the BYU Cougars in 2012. After his freshman year he will serve a mission.
This is a good commit, it keeps the Collie name alive at BYU. Dylan isn't quite Austin, but he brings the same kind of work ethic and intense competitiveness. He is a good athlete that plays both ways for his high school team, and will be a great addition to the types of teams Mendenhall is putting together.
When someone has a Dad and older brothers that played for the same school, it can sometimes be a little tricky. You'd think it'd be a lock that they'd commit without any effort on the school's part. However, this is often when you see "little brother syndrome" happen, and they go somewhere else just to be unique. Dylan made BYU work for his commit. I'm pretty sure he knew all along that he was going to commit to BYU, but didn't want to miss out on the recruiting experience (and he was getting lots of PAC 12 offers as well).
Lately, BYU has gone after a lot of great recruits from California. Hopefully this primes that pipeline and we see many more commits coming out of there.
