Troy Hinds commits to BYU

Troy Hinds of Davis High School in Kaysville, Utah had offers from many prominent football programs around the country, but in the end the talented defensive end decided to stay in-state and committed to the BYU Cougars on Monday. He issued a press release announcing his decision.

The following is Troy Hinds' press release regarding his commitment to BYU:

After much thought and deliberation I have made my decision where I will be getting my education and playing football. My Dad and I met with Coach Mendenhall in his office this morning and I committed to him that I will be enrolling at Brigham Young University after I complete my LDS church mission. I'm very excited about the academic, social and football opportunities I will have at BYU.

I want to express my sincere appreciation to Coach Whittingham and Coach Hill at the University of Utah along with Coach Anderson at Stanford, Coach Tupoi at Cal, the coaches at Notre Dame, Coach Brown at Nebraska along with all of the rest of the wonderful coaches I have met along the way. They have all been very kind and professional in the way they have recruited me. I have made good friendships with many coaches across the country during the process and I hope to continue those relationships over time. It was a difficult decision saying no to the great Pac-12 schools and others that have recruited me but in the end I know in my heart that BYU is the best school for me.

I would also like to thank my Mom and Dad along with coach Ryan Bishop for their support throughout the entire three-year recruiting process. It was a fun ride but I'm relieved and excited that I know I'm going to be playing football and getting my education at BYU.
