PROVO, Utah – The BYU football program released a new roster for the upcoming 2019 season earlier this week.

On the Cougar Tracks Podcast, I analyzed the new names and the changes to the latest installment of the roster.

A total of 21 newcomers are listed on the new roster and I size up every one of those players.  Along with the newcomers, there are also a few players that are not on the summer roster since spring ball concluded.  Those changes are discussed on the podcast.
