Another week of spring football is in the books, and it concluded with an open practice in St. George, Utah.
Spring Football is usually a time to drink the blue Kool-aid, as most of the comments and observations are largely positive. With media observation being limited, this year is not much different. Nonetheless, good things are coming out of BYU’s spring practices.
Here is a tweet roundup of highlights from week 3 of BYU spring ball:
Corbin Kaufusi has rejoined the football team after an end to the basketball season:

Tanner Mangum and the offense have shown improvement in year two of Ty Detmer’s offense:
I'm just leaving BYU spring ball media observation. The offense looked really good today and Tanner Mangum looks much improved.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 13, 2017
BYU spring ball standouts today:— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 13, 2017
Jacob Jiminez (took starting center reps) looked solid.
Things are starting to take shape at BYU. Trey Dye and Ula Tolutau have been the most consistent RBs. Shumway and Davis most consistent WRs.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 15, 2017
Notes on the Tight End group:
BYU TEs coach Steve Clark said TE Troy Hinds recently had another hip surgery. Hinds not with team right now, football future in jeopardy.— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 13, 2017
Notes from #BYU spring practice. Moroni Laulu-Pututau said he initiated the change to TE from WR. Felt it would be beneficial for career.— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) March 13, 2017
Clark said that Utah State signee/transfer TE Joe Tukuafu probably won't be eligible to play this fall, but is having a great camp.— Jay Drew (@drewjay) March 13, 2017
Walk-on Running Back KJ Hall has turned heads during spring camp:
Kalani is happy w/numbers at RB right now. He said that KJ Hall is still a walk-on, but he’s “high on list” for a scholarship. #BYU— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) March 13, 2017
Safeties have been performing well, particularly Texas Tech transfer Tanner Jacobson:
I expect Tanner Jacobson to have a real shot at starting free safety. Good speed, decent size, excellent work ethic and attitude.— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) March 15, 2017
