Casey Lundquist

Recruiting is the lifeblood of any college football program. Today, let's look at the 25 players on the current BYU football roster that were the highest-rated recruits.

(Jersey #, Name, 247 Composite Recruiting Rating)

1. 69 Tristen Hoge - 0.9585 (Four star)

2. 3 Chaz Ah You - 0.936 (Four star)

3. 4 Troy Warner - 0.9007 (Four star)

4. 74 Kieffer Longson - 0.8847

5. 18 Gunner Romney - 0.8801

6. 57 Alden Tofa - 0.863

7. TBD Kody Epps - 0.8625

8. 31 Max Tooley - 0.8608

9. 3 Jaren Hall - 0.8549

10. 1 Zach Wilson - 0.854

11. 21 Jackson McChesney - 0.8538

12. TBD Sol-Jay Maiava - 0.8521

13. TBD Connor Pay - 0.8519

14. 89 Matt Bushman - 0.8518

15. 46 Drew Jensen - 0.8516

16. 66 James Empey - 0.8491

17. 99 Zac Dawe - 0.8478

18. 41 Keenan Pili - 0.8465

19. 68 Mo Unutoa - 0.8462

20. 33 Ben Bywater - 0.8455

21. 55 Lorenzo Fauatea - 0.8451

22. TBD Elijah Unutoa - 0.8449

23. 71 Blake Freeland - 0.8418

24. 61 Keanu Saleapaga - 0.8416

25. 88 Alema Pilimai - 0.8405

Here are a few of my takeaways when I see this list:

  • First, recruiting ratings are important. Star ratings aren't perfect - Khyiris Tonga was a two-star recruit, for example. However, a lot of BYU's best players were highly regarded coming out of high school.
  • BYU can still get highly-rated Quarterbacks.
  • The Offensive Line makes up a large part of the top 25 - that can only mean good things for the BYU offense moving forward.
