Cravens, who prepped at nearby Timpview High, started his college career at Utah, though he redshirted the 2018 season after playing in one game for the Utes that year.

He then transferred to Boise State, where he’s been the past four seasons.

Cravens will have one year of eligibility remaining at BYU.
