BYU has prioritized the preferred walk-on program since Kalani Sitake was named the head coach. It has paid off in a major way in 2020. BYU's leading rusher (Tyler Allgeier) and leading receiver (Dax Milne) both arrived on campus as PWOs in 2018. On Tuesday, BYU extended a PWO offer to Micah Fe'a. Fe'a is a quarterback prospect out of Orem High School who won three-straight state championships at Orem. I caught up with Fe'a to discuss his recent offer from BYU.
Fe'a described BYU as his "dream school" when he announced his offer:
On why BYU his dream school, Fe'a said, "BYU has always been my dream school since I was little. My family grew up just up the street in Orem. My Grandma had a huge influence, because she worked at games and the bookstore. I grew up never missing a game."
Coach Roderick, who is Fe'a's main contact at BYU, extended the offer as a quarterback. Listed at 6'4 210 lbs., Fe'a has the frame that college coaches look for at quarterback. However, Coach Roderick also told Fe'a that he "could play different positions as [he] continues to grow in size." Fe'a has some experience at other positions already. Before starting at quarterback for two years at Orem, he played wide receiver as a sophmore.

Fe'a doesn't have a set decision date, but he plans to have a decision made this month before signing day.
