BYU added the 17th member of its 2018 recruiting class Wednesday afternoon with the addition of Bingham High School wide receiver Brayden Cosper. Cosper committed to BYU via his twitter account.

Cosper joins Jaren Mitchell as the second wide receiver of the 2018 class. According to Scout.com, Cosper will play in 2018 and is leaning towards not serving a LDS mission, meaning BYU would have him immediately for 4 straight years.

Cosper is listed as a 3-star prospect by scout and is considered the top receiver in the state of Utah. The 6’4”, 200 lbs receiver brings size, great hands, and crisp route running to the wide receiver position. The very first play of his hudl film shows off his speed as well, as he is seen running away from 2017 BYU signee Ammon Hannemann.

With many unproven commodities at the wide receiver position and the graduation of Jonah Trinnaman after this season, Cosper will have an opportunity to make an immediate impact. The other wide receiver commit, Jaren Mitchell, will also be playing right away in the 2018 season.

Cosper’s signing continues a busy June for the Cougars, as many high school players and FBS transfers have committed to the Cougars. June is one the busiest times of the recruiting calendar, and BYU’s coaching staff hasn’t missed a beat.
