One day after BYU received its first football commitment during the busy June camp season — a time when players routinely commit to future recruiting classes — the Cougars got three more Wednesday for their 2022 class.

This time, the commits came from a pair of in-state players — Timpview defensive lineman Braxton Fely and Richfield athlete Kaden Chidester — along with Arizona athlete Brooks Jones.

Fely also held scholarship offers from Air Force and Colorado State, according to 247 Sports, and is a 6-foot-2, 240-pounder who announced his commitment via Twitter. He helped the T’Birds reach the 5A state championship last fall and had 56 tackles and three sacks on the season.

Chidester, meanwhile, is a standout basketball player for Richfield. The 6-foot-7 athlete said on Twitter he talked to both BYU defensive coordinator Ilaisa Tuiaki and first-year offensive line coach Darrell Funk when the offer was extended, an indication his future at BYU could be in the trenches on either line or perhaps even at tight end. 

Jones lists his positions as defensive end and tight end on his Twitter profile. The 6-foot-6, 200-pounder plays at American Leadership Academy in Queen Creek, Arizona, the same school where former BYU quarterback Max Hall is the offensive coordinator and Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer is the team’s new head coach.

With the addition of all three, BYU has 10 players committed in its 2022 recruiting class.
