Flowers to visit BYU in June

Tre Flowers, the nation's 28th ranked safety, has visited BYU previously and now plans on making an unofficial visit at the end of June. However, this time he plans on bringing his parents with him so they can know what he knows.

Spring football is over, and like most skill position athletes around the country, Tre Flowers is currently focusing on track.

"I went to the state track meet and ran the 4x1 and 4x2 relay," Flowers said. "I ran the 200 at regionals and got third, so I didn't make state. My 200 meter time is 21.9. I ran a 4.5 flat but that was at the end of spring."

Kansas State was the first to offer the Judson High School safety, followed by BYU. Since then, Flowers has received quite a few more offers to choose from.

"I think it was a timing thing because when I was doing track I was also doing footwork workouts after school and things like that," said Flowers. "A lot of coaches came to watch me and that's when I started getting more offers. I've got offers from BYU, Kansas State, Purdue, Iowa State, Mississippi State, Colorado State, Oklahoma State, Houston, University of Utah, Wake Forest and Memphis."

That brings the total of scholarship offers to 11, with Utah being his last offer. He said BYU and Kansas State are among his top college choices, along with Oklahoma State.

"Yeah, they're still in my top but I just really don't have a ranking yet for all of them," said Flowers. "I just need to sit down with my parents and look at all of the schools and go through everything to sort out my top five."

Will BYU make his top five?

"Oh, of course, because when I went down there they hold their athletes to a different level on and off the field. I like that challenge and it hit me really hard when I was down there."

Flowers made an unofficial visit to BYU during spring camp. It was at that time he received his scholarship offer from BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall. He had plans to return to Provo with his parents on Junior Day, but that has since changed.

"I have some things I have to do down here, so I won't be able to make it," he said. "I think the last week of June, Coach Howell was talking about [me] coming up there for an unofficial visit. I'm going to try and make it out there with my family at that time and do a little workout when I'm there."

Flowers will bring his parents to BYU to help alleviate any concerns they may have.

"I just want to show my parents around BYU and show them what I like in a school," he said. "I want to really show them how friendly it really is up and how nice it is, to help them learn more about it. I want them to know what I know, so that's why I want them to come learn more about it."
