Pineview High School QB Kody Wilstead committed to BYU yesterday. Check out what the three-star prospect adds to the Cougars' 2015 class.

Today Geoff Martzen, BYU's recruiting director, tweeted out that 2015 quarterback Kody Wilstead, from St. George's Pineview High School, has committed to play for BYU (or at least as close to that as he could without mentioning Wilstead's name).  Martzen seemed particularly excited by this commitment as he wrote, "My favorite so far...NFL arm, no question!  Happy Birthday to me!"

The most intriguing part of this commitment is that Kody is a pocket passer.  He has good mobility, but he is not a running quarterback.  He is 6-6 and 215 lbs.  His other offers were from San Diego State, Louisville, and Southern Utah.  He is listed as a three-star prospect by 247sports, and the number 12 recruit for 2015 in the state of Utah.

He has played varsity for his whole career and has career totals of .578 completion percentage, 6518 yards, 57 touchdowns, and 37 interceptions.  In 2013, he had his best season with a .626 completion rate, 4390 yards, 36 touchdowns and 18 interceptions, while leading his team to the 3AA state championship game.  He led a 90+ yard touchdown drive to force overtime in the fourth quarter against Juan Diego to eventually win in overtime and go to the state championship.

He has plans of graduating early and serving his mission so he can return for spring ball to prepare for his freshman season.  Kody is also a three-year starter in basketball, averaging 12 points and 11 rebounds for his career.  He is a talented athlete, with a cannon for an arm and should help BYU's passing game if he earns reps when he returns from his mission.
