BYU typically adds a few Texans during each class, and they added one in QB Stacy Conner.
The 6’5”, 185 pound QB committed to UNLV over the summer, but recently reopened his commitment. Conner gave BYU a verbal commitment after visiting Provo a couple weeks ago. Conner also had offers from Memphis, UConn, New Mexico, Nevada, San Jose State, Arkansas State, North Texas and Texas State.
Conner said that he was recruited to BYU as a QB and considers himself a pocket quarterback, which shows on film. Conner throws a nice deep ball, and shows a willingness to stay in the pocket before looking to run. He does, however, have good athleticism, meaning he could potentially play another position if QB doesn’t pan out. With BYU recruiting Corner Canyon’s (Utah) Zach Wilson at QB, Conner’s future position could hinge on whether BYU adds another QB to its 2018 class. WR would be the likely alternative if Conner doesn’t play QB.
Conner is LDS, but recently said in an interview with ESPN 960 that he currently has no plans to serve a mission. He will enroll in BYU this upcoming Winter semester, meaning he will be able to participate in Spring ball.
