A quartet of four-star recruits visit BYU Football
American Fork edge rusher Hunter Clegg, Timpview OL Spencer Fano, Skyridge DB Smith Snowden, and Folsom, California TE Walker Lyons all were at BYU.
During their visit, the four-star prospects watched practice and heard from Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid speak to the BYU football team. Reid was in Provo to be the keynote speaker for BYU’s High School Coach’s Clinic, which had 275 coaches in attendance.
TE Walker Lyons
Lyons, who has BYU in his top six schools with Alabama, Ohio State, Stanford, USC, and Utah, tweeted a picture with Reid, BYU coach Kalani Sitake, and former BYU tight end Chad Lewis saying, “Goat talk!!”
