Isaac Vaha, Pleasant Grove
One of the top recruiting battles BYU wants to be in the mix for in the class of 2021. Vaha, a versatile TE/DL prospect who also excels in basketball. To land a commitment from Vaha, BYU would have to beat out rival Utah and a host of other national programs that include Penn State and Oregon.
Final 7! All glory to the man above🙌🏽 pic.twitter.com/HHkyTaOajH

Kingsley Sumataia, Orem
Suamataia is an elite four-star prospect that has narrowed his dozens of offers down to seven schools. BYU is one of the seven programs in the mix. To highlight how long BYU has been recruiting Suamataia, the Cougars extended an offer to Kingsley before Kalani Sitake coached a game at BYU. Oregon, USC, Arkansas, and Utah are all in the mix for Suamataia who’s looking to lead Orem to a third consecutive state title.

Jaxson Dart, Corner Canyon
Every year BYU looks to land at least one quarterback. In the class of 2021, Corner Canyon’s Jaxson Dart is one of the Cougars’ top targets. A transfer from Roy High School, Dart takes over a Charger offense that has a lot of talented receivers for him to throw to.
Had a great weekend with @Taylor_Kelly10 @jbecktwelve and @train3DQB. Getting all tuned up for a huge senior year! Excited to get back at it! @KjarEric @zachkapono @CCHSFOOTBALL_ pic.twitter.com/Jl0EqXykbM

John Henry Daley, Lone Peak
The younger brother to BYU signee Michael Daley, John Henry will be a prospect to watch this fall along the Knights defensive line. Hard to expect 24.5 sacks like his older brother, but John Henry has the talent to have a big season.
Dallin Havea, Provo
Younger brother to BYU pledge in the class of 2020 Drason Havea, Dallin put up big numbers at running back for the Bulldogs last season rushing for 1,159 yards.
