BYU recruiting update

Get caught up with all of the BYU recruiting news from this past week.

Four-star defensive back (for now) Chaz Ah You of Westlake High School (Utah) joined Cougar Sports to discuss his thoughts on BYU and if he will wait until his senior year to announce where he will play football at the next level.

Listen to the interview:

Three-star wide receiver Simi Fehoko (Brighton HS/Utah) recently released his top-five schools which include (in no specific order): BYU, Michigan, Washington, Utah and Stanford. Fehoko is visiting Stanford for a second time this weekend. He is also wanting to head out to Michigan but he does not have a visit lined up. Fehoko was at BYU last Friday and met with wide receivers coach Guy Holliday.

Fehoko has expressed interest in Michigan but he has yet to go to one of their camps nor been able to get to Ann Arbor, but he is trying to schedule a trip to the school. Michigan seems out of place as the four other schools are on the West Coast and proximity is a key factor for what college Fehoko wants to attend.

“Education is the number one priority for me,” Fehoko told Rivals. “Second is family, I want to stay close to family and preferably would like to stay West Coast, but we’ll see.”

BYU offered 2017 QB/WR Mannie Netherly out of Crosby, Texas, on May 11, and he projects as a wide receiver at the collegiate level. In addition to getting an offer from the Cougars, Netherly has scholarship offers from SMU, Texas Tech, Louisiana Lafayette, and Kansas.

Check out his high school highlights from his sophomore year as both a quarterback and wide receiver.

The live period for college basketball recruiting gets underway in July meaning that college coaches can visit with recruits and attend games. Wes Morgan is a 2017 guard out of Charlotte, North Carolina, and has been on BYU’s radar for the past few months. An ankle injury has caused schools to back off on any offers, and his only current offer comes from Maryland Eastern Shore. In addition to BYU being interested, he is hearing from Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Xavier, Appalachian State and Winthrop.

BYU associate head coach Tim LaComb is the one on staff who has recruited Morgan and staffers have gone out to see some of his games. Morgan is religious but not of the Mormon faith, however he is familiar with BYU from classmates.

“Not being Mormon doesn’t really affect me at all in the decision, Morgan told Vanquish the Foe. “I have a couple friends in some of my classes who are Mormon, we always talk about BYU together.

“I’m just trying to go to the school that’s the best fit for me as a player and a man, and it’s going to be where I get my education for four years,” Morgan said. “It being a religious school, I have no problem whatsoever. I love that environment, and I love their style of play.”

Here are highlights of Morgan.
