BYU landed a huge commitment as 2022 4-Star WR Cody Hagen from Corner Canyon HS (Draper, Utah) committed to BYU. BYU was in his final four along with Stanford, USC, and Utah.
In addition to the above schools, Hagen also had offers from Michigan, Oregon, Vanderbilt, Washington State, Arizona, and many others. He is rated a 4-star recruit by 247 Sports ranking and the number 6 overall rated recruit in the state of Utah from the 2022 class.
BYU was the first school to offer Hagen and he broke out after a huge junior season in 2020. He finished the year with 55 receptions for 1183 yards and 18 touchdowns. Through just 7 games this season he already has 906 receiving yards with 44 receptions and 8 touchdowns.
Stanford was considered the favorite and USC was a strong contender with Jaxson Dart, Hagen’s QB last year at Corner Canyon. Hagen attended the BYU-Utah game on September 11, and BYU’s strong start and Big 12 exclusion this month no doubt played part in swaying Hagen to BYU. Utah was also considered a contender since Cody’s dad played WR at Utah for a bit.
At 6-foot-1, Hagen is a dynamic receiver who brings speed and crisp route running. He clocked a 10.52 in the 100 meters earlier this year and has loads of big plays down the field where he constantly outruns the defense. Hagen has all the ability to be a #1 wide receiver for BYU and an All-Conference player in the Big 12 (wow that feels good to write).
Hagen is BYU’s 16th commitment in the 2022 class and the first 4-star recruit BYU has landed this class. He intends to first serve a mission before joining BYU for the 2022 season.
