Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline quarterback Jake Heaps appears to be Provo bound.
The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting on its Web site that the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder has committed to Brigham Young.
On Wednesday, the Heaps family sent out a press release saying a decision had been reached and an announcement would be made on Thursday, even though a time and place was not finalized.

Sources indicated Heaps will announce his decision at 2 p.m. local time at Iggy's Sports Grill in Salt Lake City.
Heaps, who is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has been scheduled for months to attend BYU's annual Junior Day, which is Friday in Provo. However, he's not given clues about when a final decision was going to be made until the release earlier today.
Heaps, who ranks as the nation's No. 8 pro-style quarterback and is a four-star prospect, had recently narrowed his list to BYU, Cal, LSU, Tennessee and Washington. At the recent Palo Alto NIKE Camp, Heaps said he did not have a timeline for a final decision, but it looks like Thursday is the end of the road.
Rivals.com recruiting analyst Barry Every said Heaps has the talent to be the top-ranked quarterback in this year's class after a strong showing at the NIKE Camp.
"I saw a guy that didn't throw a single knuckleball," Every said. "He had spin on every pass, had good velocity, nice touch and was able throw pretty much any route he wanted. Whether it was the slant, curl or out, he was on the money every time."
Heaps commitment looks to be an absolutely huge start to a monster recruiting weekend for the Cougars.
