BYU football recruiting: 2017 TE Isaac Rex signs with the Cougars

Student Sports

Isaac Rex, a 6-foot-4, 233-pound tight end prospect out of San Clemente High School in San Clemente, CA has signed a National Letter of Intent to play football for BYU. Rex committed to BYU in March 2016, and made it official this morning.

Rex is the son of Byron Rex, who played tight end for BYU in the early 90s. In 1991, Byron caught 38 passes from Ty Detmer for 547 yards and two touchdowns.

Rex is a three-star prospect with a 247Sports Composite rating of 81.87. He also had recruiting interest from Virginia, Vanderbilt, Oregon State, Utah, Utah State, and UCLA.

Rex played both tight end and defensive end for San Clemente. He has good size and appears to have a body that could add more weight if needed in the future. Rex is proof that Ty Detmer does intend to bring back the tight end to BYU football, and if all goes well in his development, he will play a major role in the Cougar offense in the near future.
