BYU is off to a strong start this year with seven early commitments only halfway though April. The Cougs reeled in three commitments at their Junior Day this past weekend headlined by one of the top wide receivers in the West region.
BYU was the first school to offer San Jacinto (Calif.) receiver Ryan Kessman and it paid off in a big way as the athlete committed to the Cougs this past weekend.
"I couldn't see myself going anywhere but BYU," Kessman said. "It's their honor code, their family unity, the team's coaches and players were one big family.
"I will get to start my freshman year and I love their passing offense. It has to be the most beautiful campus in the nation surrounded by snow capped mountains. The facilities are top of the line. I just felt right at home and didn't see a need to put the decision off any longer."
Kessman, 5-11, 195 pounds had a nice junior season with 43 catches for 855 yards and 13 touchdowns. He might be the most polished receiver in the region, has good speed and runs very well after the catch.
