BYU received 4 commitments (as of this writing) over Tuesday and Wednesday — three 3-star recruits and a basketball player in whom coaches see potential.
2022 3-star Athlete Cooper Ross committed to BYU Tuesday evening.
WOW! Dreams do come true! After a great camp at BYU, and talks with @coachtuiaki, @CoachSitake, and @CoachPHadley, I have been offered and have committed to play for @BYUfootball! Huge thanks for their confidence, and to my family, @CoachPerrone and @HeritageReese for everything! pic.twitter.com/hUzD1xSVt1— Cooper Ross (@CooperJRoss) June 16, 2021
Ross is listed as a 3-Star tight end according to 247, but he tagged defensive coaches in his tweet and not tight ends coach Steve Clark. Ross is 6-foot-5 and 245 pounds, so coaches may see his size transitioning to the defensive line.
The highest rated of the four commitments, Fely is a 3-star defensive lineman from Timpview High School. Fely also had offers from Utah State, Air Force, San Jose State and Colorado State.
I would like to give a big thanks to my parents for always being there for me and never giving up on me! Without them none of this would be possible! I love you mom and dad! #GOCOUGS @T_BirdFootball @CoachAndyStokes @BYUfootball @kalanifsitake @coachtuiaki @BrandonHuffman ⚪️ pic.twitter.com/GencddBehZ— Braxton_fely (@Braxton_Fely) June 16, 2021
Fely is 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds and could potentially grow into a defensive tackle at BYU, but he has enough quickness to where he could play defensive end as well.
Jones committed to BYU Wednesday and is a 3-Star Athlete from Queen Creek, Arizona.
Learned a lot this week at camp and would like to thank @CoachPHadley @kalanifsitake @coachtuiaki for giving me a chance to compete against great athletes. I am honored to announce my commitment to BYU! I am thankful for my parents and all coaches who have helped me. #GOCOUGS pic.twitter.com/5BC72mPpEh— Brooks Jones (@BreezyB_24) June 16, 2021
Brooks is the younger brother of BYU DB Dean Jones and has intriguing size. He’s 6-foot-6, 200 pounds and will likely end up on the defensive side of the ball. Brooks doesn’t hold any other FBS offers, but coaches are going the Chris Wilcox route and hoping they can work with his measurables to turn Jones into a quality player down the road.
BYU went all in on measurables here as Athlete Kaden Chidester committed to BYU Wednesday. Chidester is a 6-foot-7 basketball player at Richfield High School (Utah).
I want to thank my loving parents my amazing coaches and most importantly my father in heaven for never giving up on me and blessing me with this amazing opportunity.— K̶a̶d̶e̶n̶ ̶C̶h̶i̶d̶e̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ (@Kaden_Chid) June 16, 2021
After a great talk with @coachtuiaki and @Coach_DFunk I have committed to play football @BYU on scholarship! pic.twitter.com/CjazhklfbP
Chidester tagged OL Coach Darrell Funk in his tweet, so BYU could see him as an offensive tackle. Chidester is definitely a flyer, but Kalani and staff see enough athletic potential him to offer him a scholarship and develop him into a starter.
