BYU recruiting news: Nick Kurtz officially signs

Mike McGinnis

Nick Kurtz, a 6-foot-6 standout WR from Grossmont College officially signed with BYU today.

Nick Kurtz, a highly sought after recruit from Grossmont Community College, signed with the BYU Cougars as part of the class of 2014 on Wednesday morning. The 6-foot-6 wide receiver committed back in August to the Cougars, but made it official today.

Kurtz put up great stats at Grossmont during his time there. He had 697 yards and 10 touchdowns as a freshman in 2012.

BYU is in dire need of a replacement at wide receiver with standout senior Cody Hoffman leaving to graduation this year. Kurtz will join Mitch Matthews, another 6-foot-6 WR, as another big target for Taysom Hill.

According to 247sports.com, Kurtz is a three star prospect who had interest from LSU, Oregon and Texas Tech. USC also offered Kurtz back in September and many fans worried that Kurtz would waver on his commitment, but the junior college transfer felt that his heart was still leading him to BYU.

You can see some of his freshman highlights here.

Nick will graduate from junior college this month and enroll in BYU this January. He will be eligible to play in the 2014 season.

*BYU also received a commitment from Michael Shelton, a defensive back from North Carolina, who will graduate high school early and enroll this January.
