BYU Football Recruiting: DE Cade Albright signs with Cougars

BYU added one of the top pieces to its 2019 recruiting class as 3-star DE Cade Albright committed to the Cougars. Albright’s high school announced the commitment via Twitter.

The San Juan Hills High School product (Orange County, California) is one of the best pass rushers in all of California. Albright led Orange County in sacks during the 2018 season, finishing his senior year with 19 sacks and 33 tackles for loss.

Albright has a quick first step, high motor and shows multiple moves that allows him to beat opposing tackles. He’s listed at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds and seems to have the body type that can pack on the pounds without sacrificing much — if any — speed and quickness.

Albright also had offers from UCLA, Utah, Utah State and Yale. UCLA really came after Albright hard the past couple months, but Cade ultimately decided to stick with the school that offered him his first FBS scholarship.

In regards to mission plans, Albright told Greg Biggins of 247 Sports back in November that he was “hoping to go straight out of high school.”
