The first ripple effect of BYU’s shake-up of their offensive staff came today as three-star quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann decommitted from BYU. He posted the following message to Twitter Monday evening.
The quarterback out of Somerset, Texas decided to open up his recruitment after “unfortunate circumstances”, those most likely being the firing of his uncle Ty Detmer last week. It’s unclear if Dinkelnmann has another destination in mind but he did have offers from Louisiana-Monroe and UT-San Antonio.
Zadock had originally committed to play for LSU as an eight-grader, but changed his plans after BYU offered him a scholarship in March. 247 Sports has the 6’4’’, 228 lbs pro-style quarterback listed as a three-star recruit, with a composite score of .846.
With the offensive staff in flux, it’s unclear if BYU will continue to utilize the pro-style system that Ty Detmer installed in 2016 or return the spread attack. Either way, they’ll likely be looking at other QB targets to fill the vacancy.
Overall, the 2018 recruiting class will probably dip below 60th in the country after losing a three-start recruit. According to the 247 Sports, BYU currently sits at 57th in the national rankings.
