Zayne Anderson from Tooele, Utah, signed his letter of intent to play football at BYU today.  The 6-3, 190 pound senior from Stansbury High School runs a 4.51 40, and has a 33-inch vertical jump, according to his Hudl page.

Anderson played several positions for the Stallions, including free safety, wide receiver and running back.  247 Sports composite rates him at .8274 and their own ranking lists him as the no. 9 Utah recruit. His senior totals, according to Deseret News, were 31 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 interception; 148 yards and 5 TD on 24 carries; and 7 catches for 89 yards. The Cougars will use his skills to fill one of several vacancies in the defensive backfield.

Prior to December 10, 2014, it looked like Anderson was off to Logan to become an Aggie, committing to Utah State in December of 2013. But due to the persistent efforts of coaches Kelly Poppinga and Nick Howell, Anderson flipped his commitment one year later, stating that BYU is a better fit for him.

Anderson plans to serve an LDS mission, and will likely do so after playing for the Cougars this fall.
