Bleacher Report: Why Jake Heaps will become the greatest QB in BYU history

Let's hope this guy knows what he's talking about... "No BYU quarterback has been a full-time four-year starter. Heaps has the ability to become the first—barring injury, of course. The sheer number of games Heaps would play under such a scenario gives him a great chance to rewrite the BYU record books. Assuming the Cougars play 12 regular season games and a bowl game in each of Heaps’ four years, the total comes to 52 games. Even if Heaps lost 19 of those games, he could still pass Max Hall’s career wins record of 32. The last time BYU lost at least 19 games in a four-year stretch was 2003-2006. Keep in mind that only eight of those losses came under Bronco Mendenhall. Despite Hall’s ascent up the career wins list, Ty Detmer is still the gold standard for career statistical dominance at BYU: 1,530 pass attempts, 958 completions, 15,031 yards, and 121 touchdowns in 46 games. Here’s about what Heaps would have to average over 52 games to pass the Heisman Trophy winner: 29.5 attempts, 18.5 completions, 289.1 yards, and 2.4 touchdowns. Seems pretty reachable, doesn’t it?"

Brigham Young is the clear-cut winner among BCS programs with two weeks to go until national signing day. The Cougars wrestled Sporting News Top 100 quarterback Jake Heaps away from Tennessee, Notre Dame and in-state Washington, and that kicked off what looks like a potential top 25 overall class--BCS included. Fellow top recruits like WR Ross Apo, who was previously committed to Texas, and four-star recruits like DEs Kona Schwenke and Bronson Kaufusi, are just as big for BYU as Heaps. This truly is one of the school's top classes ever, and there are 28 players lined up to sign."

Daily Herald: Rich, Hansen recovering from offseason surgeries


"The following players have had or are scheduled to have post-season surgery: senior defensive back Andrew Rich (ankle), sophomore defensive back Robbie Buckner (shoulder), junior offensive lineman Marco Thorson (shoulder), sophomore offensive lineman Braden Hansen (thumb) and freshman wide receiver Ross Apo (shoulder). Rich, Buckner, Thorson and Hansen have already undergone surgery for injuries sustained during the 2009 season, and Apo is scheduled for surgery this week to treat an injury suffered in high school. Hansen is probable for spring practices, Rich and Buckner are questionable, and Thorson and Apo will be out for spring. All are expected to participate in fall camp."

Heaps stellar in high school bowl


BYU commit Jake Heaps led two touchdown drives to help lead the West high school stars to a 30-14 victory over the East in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday. Heaps completed 9-of-12 passes for 91 yards, including connecting on his final five passes. After fellow quarterback Austin Hinder took a West drive to the East's 44-yard line early in the fourth quarter, Heaps finished off the drive by throwing a 39-yard pass down the sideline to Robert Woods on third-and-11. Later in the fourth, Heaps led a TD drive that started at the East 44. He completed all four of his pass attempts for 25 yards on the drive -- Heaps also had a fifth completion, a 16-yarder, nullified by a penalty. Heaps also quarterbacked two drives in the second quarter, both of which ended in punts. For the game, Heaps completed all three pass attempts to the left side of the field (for 29 yards), 1-of-2 to the middle (minus-4 yards) and 5-of-7 to the right side (66 yards). WR Ross Apo, another Cougar commit, had one pass thrown his way on the West's second drive, but the ball was tipped away. Ricky Heimuli, a four-star defensive tackle recruit who prepped at Brighton and has scholarship offers from several Pac-10 schools, as well as BYU and Utah, had a sack in the first half.
