BYU added a versatile athlete its 2018 signing class with the addition of 6’3”, 185 lbs Safety/WR Talan Alfrey.
The Auburn, Washington native is one of the most versatile athletes in the Seattle area. This past season, Alfrey was fifth in the state of Washington in receiving yards (1,081), and was second in the state in receptions (68). He also had the fourth-most tackles in his region and led his team in rushing yards. He was named the South Puget Sound’s ( 60+ schools) Player of the year.
As a junior, Alfrey was lined up at even more positions. He passed for 1,051 yards, rushed for 581, and had 221 receiving yards. On the defensive side of the ball, he led his team with 61 solo tackles. As a punter, he pinned nine punts inside the 20.
In addition to lining up all over the football field, Alfrey is also a 3-sport athlete. According to The News Tribune, Alfrey was a basketball all-league selection and qualified for the state track and field championships in long jump, triple jump, and the 4x100 relay.
Alfrey told Vanquish the Foe back in July that he was recruited as a safety, but his performance at WR could cause coaches to consider a position change. Alfrey is planning on serving a LDS mission before enrolling in school.
Alfrey held offers from Nevada, Air Force, and Idaho at the time of commitment. He is rated as a 3-star prospect and one of the top 20 prospects in the state of Washington by 247 sports.
