Weeks happy with BYU pledge

Josh Weeks always knew BYU was the right place for him so the 2012 wide receiver from Show Low, Ariz., wasted no time and committed to the Cougars right before their New Mexico Bowl game against UTEP last month.
"I went down there and watched the game and the night before I met with the coaches and I committed," Weeks said.
"Both of my parents went to BYU and ever since I was a little kid I've wanted to go there. Once I got the opportunity to go I wasn't going to turn it down."
Oregon, Arizona, Washington and a few others showed interest in Weeks, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect, but he said BYU was always the most involved and that's always where he wanted to play.
No need to prolong things. Weeks wanted to get his recruitment done early and so he got his pledge out of the way before his junior year ended.
"I knew where I wanted to go and that made it easy for me," Weeks said. "There was only one school I ever pursued so I pretty much knew I was going there."
BYU is getting a quality prospect. Weeks was one of the top receivers at last week's U.S. Army National Combine which was held in San Antonio making the Rivals.com All-Combine team. He also finished with 73 receptions for 1,561 yards and 20 touchdowns in his junior season.
Playing in BYU's offense is exciting to Weeks, who said he's looking forward to playing with quarterback Jake Heaps and competing for playing time.
"The offense that they have and the quarterback they have, with all the new recruits coming in, and with their new schedule, there was a lot that stood out to me that I liked," Weeks said.
