One of the most productive running backs in BYU Cougars history is off to the NFL.
Tyler Allgeier, who in 2021 set the school record for most rushing yards in a season, announced on social media Tuesday morning that he will skip his remaining eligibility and enter the 2022 draft.
The 5-foot-11, 220-pound Allgeier arrived at BYU in 2018 as a walk-on linebacker from Fontana, California, before switching to running back late in the 2019 campaign.
He excelled in 2020, rushing for 1,130 yards on just 150 carries, and then became the Cougars’ workhorse in 2021.
This season, he finished with 1,606 yards on 276 carries with 23 touchdowns. The touchdown total led the nation and the yardage total was third.
Allgeier joins Neil Pau’u and James Empey as BYU players who have declared for the 2022 draft.
