Big has its likely QB for the Big 12.

NCAA Football: Pittsburgh at Miami Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

BYU seemingly has its QB heading into the Big 12 as former Pitt and USC quarterback Kedon Slovis announced his commitment to BYU.

Kedon Slovis is a 4-year starter who spent his first three years at USC and this last season at Pitt. For his career, Slovis has thrown for 9,973 yards, 68 TDs, and 33 interceptions with a 66% completion percentage. His best year came as a freshman in 2019 when he threw for 3,500 yards and 30 TDs while completing 71% of his passes.

Pitt had a new Offensive Coordinator this past season and Slovis threw for 2,397 yards, 10 TDs, and 9 interceptions with a 58% completion percentage. Aaron Roderick has shown a good track record his last two starting QBs with Zach Wilson and Jaren Hall, and he sees enough in Slovis to recruit him as BYU’s starter next season. Slovis has great arm talent, and getting into a system that fits his skill set could set him up for a successful final season. He has also worked with John Beck for the last few years.

Roderick likes to push the ball down the field, and Slovis was among in the best in the country this last season and in years past with down field accuracy.

Slovis has one year of eligibility remaining plus a redshirt season if something goes awry. With his commitment now, he will be able to enroll at BYU for Winter semester and participate in Spring ball.
