(Ben B. Braun, Deseret News)
PROVO, Utah – Ryner Swanson, a four-star tight end from Laguna Beach, California, announced his commitment to BYU Football last week.
Swanson considered Oregon, Texas, and Utah. But, ultimately ended up deciding to become a Cougar.

“Never thought this would happen to me. I’m just a California boy,” Swanson said. “The school that I know will be the best for me is Brigham Young University. Thank you so much to Kalani Sitake and all the coaches.”
Ryner Swanson is the seventh member of BYU Football’s 2024 recruiting class. He is the first four-star commit of that bunch.
“Obviously BYU’s a great program and is currently on the rise,” Swanson said. “But, every time I step on campus and speak with the coaches I know without uncertainty that BYU is the place for me. The spirit is incredible.”
I just got done with a day at the beach. Fitting because BYU continues to ride the wave of landing heralded tight ends.
Ryner Swanson is going to be a good one for the Cougs. https://t.co/WcVGdFZP5F

Prassas joins quarterback Enoch Watson as another Arizona native to commit to BYU Football this year.
Enoch Watson from American Leadership Academy in Arizona is the first quarterback in the 2024 class for BYU football.

BYU is the only FBS school that has extended a scholarship offer to Watson.
Watson committed to BYU days after competing in one of BYU’s summer camps. He also visited Provo during spring ball last March, where he talked with Kedon Slovis and Cade Fennegan as they walked off the field.
One of the traits that appealed to BYU with Watson was his big arm. He has the arm strength to make big plays downfield, which is a trait that Aaron Roderick loves in his quarterbacks.
