The NCAA Recruiting Period officially ended June 1 (Arizona State didn’t seem to care, though) and BYU has had over 100 high school prospect on campus for camps and unofficial visits.

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.

Cooper Ross

2022 3-star Athlete Cooper Ross committed to BYU Tuesday evening.

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.

Braxton Fely

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.

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.

Brooks Jones

Jones committed to BYU Wednesday and is a 3-Star Athlete from Queen Creek, Arizona.

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.

Kaden Chidester

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).

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.
