Timpview guard Frank Jackson is shooting up the recruiting boards and is inching towards top 10 status in the 2016 class. Scout.com put out their West recruiting notebook and the take on Jackson is that he is a lean toward Stanford and Duke, but BYU, Utah and Arizona are still there. The big news out of this piece is that there is the possibility that Jackson may not serve an LDS mission. Serving a mission has been what Jackson has said during his entire recruitment.
Josh Gershon who wrote that bit on Jackson joined Cougar Sports to expound upon Jackson’s recruitment which might include not going on a mission, and if he doesn’t plan to serve then the recruitment will only intensify. Also, these high level programs that want Jackson are willing to wait as well to get his services in 2018.
Snow College wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman joined Cougar Sports earlier this week, and he went over what his plans are for recruiting. Trinnaman plans to spend two years at the JUCO level and also that BYU is one of his two dream schools.
Pleasant Groves’ Alan Hamson center could possibly be joining the BYU basketball team as a walk-on this fall. He was not highly recruited out of high school by being a two-star prospect. However, he has grown from 7-feet to now a towering 7-feet-4-inches tall. He does not get from his mission in Ventura, California, until late August or early September. So, if he does indeed join the basketball program he may not play any meaningful minutes in this upcoming season.
Have a look at his highlights:
Keeping in basketball, power forward Yoeli Childs has been offered from BYU, and how has six offers which include Arizona State, Boise State, Idaho State, Auburn Utah State and Wyoming.
