BYU landed another 2018 commitment Monday afternoon, as safety Talan Alfrey committed to the Cougars. Alfrey announced his commitment via his twitter account, and also indicated that he will serve an LDS mission before enrolling at BYU in 2020.
Alfrey is from Auburn, Washington, which is about 40 minutes south of Seattle. The 6’3”, 185 lbs do-it-all athlete has played all over the field during his high school career. Alfrey has played Quarterback, Wide Receiver, and Punter, but he informed Vanquish the Foe that BYU offered him as a safety.
This past season, Alfrey passed for 1,051 yards, rushed for 581, and had 221 receiving yards. On the defensive side of the ball, he led his team with 61 solo tackles. As a punter, he pinned nine punts inside the 20.
In addition to lining up all over the football field, Alfrey is also a 3-sport athlete. According to The News Tribune, Alfrey was a basketball all-league selection and qualified for the state track and field championships in long jump, triple jump, and the 4x100 relay.
Alfrey holds offers from Nevada, Air Force, and Idaho, but he also has been receiving interest from Boise State and Utah.
