SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #2 is BYU‘s Kingsley Suamataia (OT).

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).

After only one season with the Cougars, Suamataia has been projected as a first round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

BYU’s Kingsley Suamataia

Suamataia is entering his second season as a member of the BYU football program. Last year was his first year after transferring to the Cougars from the University of Oregon. Suamataia is a former five-star recruit from Orem High School.

He stands at 6-foot-6, 315-pounds, and is making the switch from right tackle to the left tackle position along BYU’s offensive line.
