PROVO, Utah – The countdown to BYU football fall camp rolls on with the Cougar Tracks podcast.

Every day on the podcast a different position is sized up as the Cougars prepare for the 2019 football season.

The next position preview we’re looking at is the wide receivers.  This is a position group that has generated some questions heading into camp.  Who will be the top targets from this group for quarterback Zach Wilson?  Will anyone emerge as a number one wide receiver?  Is it needed to have a number one receiver?
