BYU's 2016 recruiting class is continuing to take shape, as another athlete announced his intent to continue his playing career in Provo. 2016 offensive lineman JT Gentry announced that he will commit to play for BYU today, per his Twitter account.

Gentry is listed as a two-star recruit on both Rivals and Scout. The 6'5, 275 pound offensive tackle from Littleton, Colorado also had an offer from Air Force and FCS San Diego, but had attracted recruiting interest from Ivy League, Mountain West, and even a few Pac-12 programs.
Gentry is another under-the-radar line prospect to recently commit to the Cougars, joining Caden Haws, who also committed on Sunday, but with some seasoning in an FBS weight program, he could be an important part of future offensive lines. After all, the Cougars have recently had success turning lightly regarded offensive linemen into important cogs on offense.
If nothing else, BYU is getting a very smart player who was very successful in high school, and you can never have too many of those. You can see highlights from Gentry below:
