BYU football recruiting: 2017 ATH Mason Fakahua signs with the Cougars

Student Sports

Mason Fakahua, a 6-3, 210 pound athlete from Cedar City High in Cedar City, Utah, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for BYU.

Fakahua received a 77.90 composite rating from 247Sports, making him a two-star prospect and the 27th best prospect in the state of Utah this year. He also received offers from Utah State, Weber State, and Southern Utah.

The Cedar City product committed to BYU earlier this week, and sealed his decision today with his letter of intent. Fakahua played quarterback in high school, but will likely play safety during his time at BYU.

Kai Nacua seems like an easy comparison for Mason. Both were high school quarterbacks with very similar builds. Nacua’s success likely played a role in Fakahua committing to BYU over the prospect of playing quarterback at Utah State.

Mason’s highlights can be viewed below:
