Utah made a late push for Chase Roberts, but the American Fork Wide Receiver kept with his 18-month verbal commitment to the Cougars and officially signed with BYU.
BYU is getting one of the most productive and dynamic players in the state of Utah. After a junior campaign where he had 1,200 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns, Roberts elevated those numbers even more as a senior. In 13 games played this season, Roberts tallied 97 receptions, 1771 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. His big season earned him a spot in the prestigious Under Armour All-American Bowl.
Roberts burst onto the recruiting scene even more back in May after receiving WR MVP honors at Nike’s The Opening in Canton, Ohio. Roberts competed against some of the country’s top recruits from the midwest and more than held his own.

At 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, Roberts is an elite route runner who uses his size to effectively high point the ball and come up with catches in tight coverage.
Roberts has stated in the past that he is tentatively planning on serving a church mission before enrolling.
