Despite suffering a broken leg that caused him to miss half of his junior season, Southlake (Texas) Carroll wide receiver McKay Jacobson had stockpiled over 10 offers by the first of May.
The 6-0, 180 pound speedster took a few phone calls from colleges this first week of May and then decided he was ready to make his decision.
"McKay committed to BYU this evening," said Jacobson's father Evan via email.
"We are excited for him and he is excited about the chance to play early at BYU.
"McKay feels relief with this decision as now all the phone calls can stop and he can concentrate on his senior season."
Jacobson, who clocked a 4.47 at the NIKE Camp a year ago in Stanford, chose the Cougars over offers from Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Purdue, Northwestern, Missouri, Minnesota and several others.
Last fall he caught 35 passes for 437 yards and three scores in an injury-shortened junior season for the FAB 50 No.1 ranked Southlake Carroll Dragons, returning from a mid-season injury to play in the playoffs.
As a sophomore, Jacobson caught 70 passes for 952 yards and 10 scores.
A solid student with a 3.8 GPA, Jacobson will graduate in December and enroll at BYU in January.
