Student Sports

Jonah Trinnaman, a 6-foot, 185-pound dynamic wide receiver prospect out of American Fork High School in American Fork, UT and more recently Snow College, has signed a letter of intent to play for BYU. Utah made a late push for Trinnaman after hiring former BYU WR coach, Guy Holliday away from the Cougars, but Trinnaman stuck with the Cougars.

Trinnaman is a three-star prospect and the seventh ranked junior college wide receiver in the country according to the 247Sports composite. His composite rating is 87.43, which barring any late surprises will make him the second highest rated prospects to sign with BYU in the 2016 class. Trinnaman also had offers from Oregon State and Utah.

A NJCAA First Team All-American, Trinnaman caught 47 passes for 803 yards and eight touchdowns as a sophomore at Snow College. He added another 576 yards and a touchdown in the return game for the Badgers.

Trinnaman has a combination of speed and quickness that is rare for the Cougars. Trinnaman reportedly ran a 4.35 40-yard dash at BYU's Junior Day. He also just missed setting the 5A state record in the 100 meters while he was in high school with a time of 10.68. And did I mention he has a 41-inch vertical. In addition to his athleticism, Trinnaman has a high football IQ and is versatile skill set that allows him to play inside or outside receiver.

Trinnaman may be the signee from this year's class that will have the biggest impact for the Cougars this upcoming season. BYU will need to replace the production of Mitch Mathews, Devon Blackmon, and Terenn Houk in the receiving game. Trinnaman's skill set and experience should allow him to come in and contribute (and even start) for the Cougars right away.

Here are some of Trinnaman's highlights:
