Eichorn shared his decision via social media on Sunday, April 23.

“Proud @BYUfootball,” the former Wildcat posted on Twitter.

Eichorn has three years left of collegiate eligibility.

The Beaver, Utah native followed former Weber State head coach Jay Hill to Provo. Hill became BYU’s associate head coach and defensive coordinator and this offseason after serving as Weber State’s head coach from 2014-22.

Prior to the start of his college career, the former Beaver High School standout helped the Beavers win back-to-back state titles in 2019 and 2020.

Eichorn was one of the best high school football players in the state of Utah and signed with Weber State in December 2020. The offensive lineman sat out his first season with the Wildcats in 2021.

As a redshirt freshman in 2022, Eichorn played in 12 games, including multiple starts. He helped the Wildcats reach the FCS postseason and a 10-3 record.

Eichorn is the second addition to BYU’s offensive line via the NCAA’s transfer portal in the past week. On April 17, former Oklahoma State lineman Caleb Etienne announced his commitment to join the Cougars.
