On a busy day for BYU Football, they picked up another important commitment for the 2017 class. Bentley Hanshaw is a three-star TE prospect out of Moorpark High School in California. He announced his decision on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

Bentley Hanshaw is the 10th player to commit to BYU for the 2017 class. He had numerous offers from other schools including: Oregon State, Utah, Utah State and San Diego State.

Bentley is ranked as the 64th TE in the nation according to Scout.com. He should be a great pass-catcher for BYU. In addition to tight end, he plays defensive end for his high school. Listed at 6'6 and 220-pounds he could probably add some more weight to his tall frame to compete at the next level. Either way, he looks to be a great pick-up for BYU and has great speed for his size.

Bentley has several BYU connections with the top one being that he is the son of former BYU football player Tim Hanshaw. He is also close friends with Tanner Baker and Isaac Rex who are BYU commits for the 2017 class. BYU's recruiting classes are coming together early and hopefully they have a big impact on the Cougars' future.
