SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #18 is BYU’s Isaac Rex (TE).

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).

“Had an unfortunate injury last year but is a huge presence for our quarterback as a big target,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said of his tight end. “6-6, very athletic, soft hands, can block at the line of scrimmage as well. Next-level tight end for us, great compliment to what we have going on with Dallin Holker. Looking forward to seeing him healthy and catching balls in the end zone.”

BYU’s Isaac Rex

Rex is a sophomore from San Clemente, California. In high school, Rex and San Clemente High School won the California state championship during his senior season and was the leading receiver in the playoffs. He joined BYU in 2019 after serving a two-year church mission in Samoa. In 2019, Rex played in just three games, recording one catch for 23 yards. During the 2020 season, Rex appeared in 12 games, hauling in 37 receptions for 429 yards and 12 touchdowns.

This past season, Rex played in 12 games, finishing with 18 receptions for 191 yards and three touchdowns. Entering the 2022 season, Rex was named to the John Mackey Award preseason watch list. The Mackey Award is given annually to the best tight end in college football.

Rex and the Cougars open their 2022 schedule on the road against the USF Bulls on September 3.
