BYU football recruiting: Class of 2016 prospect big board and interactive map

New, 4 comments

Click, zoom, and scroll your way through BYU football's 2016 recruiting efforts.

Here is your hub for BYU's 2016 football recruiting class. Click and zoom through the map for some interactive fun, consult the recruiting board below of targets and their highlights, and view the running blog of changes/updates to the board.

It's important to note that there are many prospects who will be officially rated by scouting services as we progress through summer, where many players will be evaluated at various camps throughout the country, including the two BYU puts on in June. We'll also begin to see whether some targets simply like BYU or if BYU has serious interest in them.

We'll keep all ratings and happenings updated on the map and in the table.
