PROVO, Utah – 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.
