PROVO, UtahΒ – The recruiting trail is heating up for BYU football. Not necessarily for the 2022 season, but in future seasons when the Cougars are in the Big 12 Conference.

This week BYU football extended scholarships to a Southern California quintet that includes four recruits in the class of 2023 and one in the class of 2024. All five players compete on the same 7-on-7 team in California called “Team Makasi.”

Here are the five players that BYU offered.

Surahz Buncom, Athlete

Buncom is a 6-foot-4, 175-pound athlete who plays both sides of the ball at Mater Dei Catholic in Chula Vista, California.

A 2023 recruit, Buncom holds offers from BYU and Pittsburgh. He had 467 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games played.

Jeremiah McClure, Wide Receiver

McClure is in the same receiver room as Buncom at Mater Dei Catholic. A 6-foot-2, 195-pound pass-catcher, McClure has already pulled in offers from Michigan, USC, and Washington to go along with his BYU offer.

McClure is the 49th ranked receiver nationally in the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Marcus Ratcliffe, Defensive Back

Ratcliffe preps at Cathedral Catholic in San Diego. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound defensive back holds Arizona and San Diego State offers.

Chris Snyder Jr., Athlete

A two-way player at Mater Dei Catholic, Snyder is 6-foot, 175-pounds. To go along with his BYU offer, Snyder, who has a nickname of “Boom,” has offers from Oregon, Pitt, among others.

Isaiah Buxton, Cornerback

Buxton is the lone 2024 recruiting in this Southern California quintet. The 6-foot, 150-pound defensive back had 29 tackles and four interceptions in his sophomore year for Mater Dei Catholic.
