SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #24 is BYU’s Tyler Batty (DL).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“If Tyler stays healthy, he’ll be a big-time pass rusher for us, but also dominates the line of scrimmage in the run game,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said of his defensive lineman. “Much bigger than he’s been the past two years. Looking forward to his dominating presence at the line of scrimmage and definitely looking forward to him making plays for us on third and long.”

BYU’s Tyler Batty

Batty is a sophomore from Payson, Utah. He prepped at Payson High School, where he was named first-team All-Region, All-Valley and All-State honorable mention. Coming out of high school, Batty was recruited by Utah, Utah State, Air Force, Hawai’i, Princeton, Boise State and UCLA. Before joining BYU, Batty served a two-year church mission in Madrid, Spain.


Batty’s first season at BYU was in 2020 when he played in four games, finishing with 13 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, four sacks and three quarterback hits. Despite dealing with injuries in 2021, Batty played in 12 games, recording 43 tackles, seven tackles for loss, three sacks, one forced fumble and two quarterback hits. Batty’s best game was against UBA in the Independence Bowl, posting eight tackles, three tackles for loss and two sacks.
