BYU landed a commitment over the weekend from one of the top quarterbacks in the NW region. Jason Munns, 6-5, 230 pounds from Kennewick (Wash.) Southridge chose the Cougars over offers from Washington State, Arizona State and Utah.
"It came down to BYU and Washington State," Munns said. "I didn't plan to commit this early but knew if I waited, BYU might take another quarterback and the more I thought about it, I realized BYU was the best place for me. I didn't want to risk losing that opportunity and settling for second best so I went ahead and called up the coaches and committed.
"I'm very excited about my decision. BYU has a great tradition, especially at the quarterback position and I'm excited to be a part of that. I have a good relationship with Coach Doman, who will be my position coach and I like Coach Mendenhall as well. It's just a good situation for me and it's a relief to have this out of the way so I can just focus on football and school next year."
Munns had a very good junior season throwing for 2,178 yards and 32 touchdowns last season. He's a big, strong quarterback who shows up well on film. He has plus arm strength, can make all the throws and has a very nice touch on his deep ball.
