Three-star cornerback Dayan Lake of Northridge High (UT) has reopened his recruitment just two weeks before signing day, according to Doug Kimmel of Scout. Lake retweeted all of Kimmel's tweets on the matter.
Lake was BYU's second-highest recruit according to 247 Sports composite, coming in behind only Kieffer Longson. BYU is still in the mix for his services:
Breaking: Northridge (UT) four-star CB Dayan Lake has decommitted from #BYU & is exploring all options:http://t.co/ZlCrWBvFR7 @still_flexin6— Doug Kimmel (@DougKimmelScout) January 20, 2015
For #BYU fans losing sleep... Dayan Lake is still visiting 1/30 & is open to the Cougars. http://t.co/x7JFe8AJnX @still_flexin6— Doug Kimmel (@DougKimmelScout) January 20, 2015
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound cornerback was rated four stars by Scout and held offers from Utah, Cal, and Weber State, but verbally committed to BYU on July 9, 2013. While offers slowed down with his early commitment, Lake reportedly received contact often from Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State.
Lake is a superb athlete and often carried the load for the Northridge offense while playing running back, and was expected to compete for playing time from day one and provide a consistent anchor to the secondary for four years. His talents are needed, so hopefully he can be reassured of his spot in Provo on his Jan. 30 visit.
Lake's decision could potentially impact 2016 defensive lineman and high school teammate Noah Kramer. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound athlete got the attention of and offer from BYU coaches at a camp in the summer of 2014. Kramer is rated two stars by Rivals and three by Scout. Kramer currently holds offers only from BYU and Weber State, however, and with one more season in high school will have more time for his recruitment to play out.
Signing day is February 4.
