PROVO — It’s only late June, but for BYU few recruiting functions will likely hold more weight than the upcoming one this weekend.

The Cougar football program is set to host as many as seven top recruits during the final weekend of June in hopes of accumulating a top signing class for the 2024 signing period. Six of the known seven prospects are top local products, as the Cougars hope to cash in on a a typically strong in-state recruiting crop.

Big recruiting weekends historically occur later in the process, but the new recruiting calendar, along with an increasingly active transfer portal, have necessitated constant changes to traditional recruiting endeavors.

Here’s a look at the known visitors and why each of them project as top prospects.


Asiata is a 6-foot-2, 205 linebacker prospect from Hunter High School in the Salt Lake City area. Asiata is yet to receive a star ranking from the 24/7 Sports Network, but already claims offers from the likes of BYU, Utah and Wisconsin, and recently took a visit to the Ute program on June 16.

His father is Matt Asiata, who was a star running back for the Utes from 2007-2010 and has received mounting interest from the likes of USC and Tennessee, among others.


Andrews is certainly one of the biggest in-state prizes for the 2024 recruiting class, with the 6-2, 190 pound athlete from American Fork High School already claiming as many as 13 offers, according to 24/7 Sports from the likes of Utah, BYU, Notre Dame, UCLA and Tennessee, among other top programs.

This weekend will mark the fourth official visit Andrews has made this summer having previously visited Utah, UCLA and Notre Dame. He’s rated as a 3-star prospect by 24/7 Sports.


Satuala claims a very similar offer list to that of Andrews and is also rated a 3-star prospect by the 24/7 Sports Network. The 6-3, 195 safety prospect from Bountiful High School has already made official visits to both Utah and UCLA.


Dillon is a 6-5, 220 Edge prospect who is rated a 3-star prospect by 24/7 Sports. The Corner Canyon High product claims an impressive offer list, which includes top programs such as Washington, UCLA, Wisconsin and Arizona State, along with both BYU and Utah among many others.

Dillon has made an official visit to Utah and by several reports lists Utah as his favorite at this current stage of the process, although there’s a lot to play out.


Suesue plays quarterback for Granger High School, although he projects as an athlete at the collegiate level. The 6-5, 200 prospect is a 3-star recruit and claims offers from the likes of BYU, Utah State, Utah, Arizona State, Tennessee and Pittsburgh, among several others.


Nelson is a 6-5, 210 tight end prospect from American Fork High School who claims an offer from BYU although other programs are certain to come forward with offers shortly. Nelson is rated a 3-star prospect by 24/7 Sports.


Vander Haar is a punting prospect from Australia who entered the transfer portal after playing for Pittsburgh for one season.
