Jimmy Rex

Check out what were the top BYU stories over the weekend, plus the top local properties.

Each Monday we will have the top three BYU stories with Jimmy Rex of Rex Real Estate and also his top three properties of the week. Check out their complete list each week of best properties at their website,

 1. BYU upsets Boise State on another Tanner Mangum last-second heave and is getting plenty of buzz from national writers./Eagle Mountain – $251,000- 3300 square feet house – bank owned and built in 2005, comps all close to $285-290K.

Tanner Mangum had two passing and one rushing touchdown and a pair of interceptions and Kai Nacua had three interceptions including a pick-six. The fashion in which BYU won provided the nation to focus on the Cougars with the big time plays to get wins. Everyone is focusing on BYU and are waiting to see what happens against UCLA.

Jake Kuresa likes the hype for the program with the exposure it gets but dismisses the Heisman trophy talk for Mangum.

2. BYU picks up commitments from two Bingham prospects, QB Keaton Torre for football, and PF Yoeli Childs for basketball/ Orem – $224,000 is 2,700 square foot house and is bank owned. Finished basement which sold for $210,000 in 2006.

BYU continues to get big time recruits to help their football and basketball programs. The big question is if any of these commits, especially Torre could help reel in other big recruits such as Troy Warner who was at the Boise State victory. Also, big wins and at home will help bring in big recruits. An exciting game and full house stadium and a memorable ending goes a long way to go land top end talent.

3. South Jordan – $529,000 and is 6,600 square feet and built in 2004 has a finished basement and is in a great area. This is a bank owned home/BYU players in the NFL

The big player in the NFL this week of former Cougars Uani Unga who got the start at middle linebacker for the Giants on Sunday Night Football and led the game with 12 total tackles with 10 solo, he also had an interception and deflected a pass. By far Unga had the best performance, Ziggy Ansah had a pair of tackles and a sack; while his teammate Kyle Van Noy is still out with an undisclosed injury.
