BYU football recruiting: Jaterrius Gulley signs with the Cougars

Hoover High School's Jaterrius Gulley made his commitment to BYU official today by signing his national letter of intent to play for the Cougars.

Jaterrius Gulley, an unranked defensive tackle out of Alabama, has signed his letter of intent to play for BYU. Gulley, who played for Hoover High School in Hoover, Alabama, chose BYU over Central Arkansas, Memphis, SE Louisiana, UAB, and Western Kentucky.

The 6-3, 325 pound Gulley, doesn't have the impressive offer list that some of the recruits BYU that sign today have, but don't underestimate this Alabama product. Aside from becoming a member of BYU's all-name team from the moment he signed (If you don't understand the significance of that reference, you really need to watch this), Gulley is a big nose tackle prospect who shows the ability to eat up space in the middle of the line. Gulley has the size and power to overwhelm offensive lineman and make plays in the backfield, but will need to prove he can continue to do so at the next level.

With Eathyn Manumaleuna graduating, the nose tackle position is wide open at BYU this upcoming season. Gulley should be in the mix with last season's backup Maques Johnson as well as JonRyheem Peoples and Travis Tuiloma competing for either the starting or backup role.

Here's some of Gulley's highlights (the music cuts in and out, so I suggest muting the sound):
