Pleasant Grove receiver to attend Junior Day

Many of the top wide receiver prospects from the state of Utah were in attendance for the RT25 Camp that was held last Saturday. However, prior to becoming the top wide receiver performer at the camp, this Pleasant Grove High School prospect was invited to attend BYU's Junior Day.

Head coach Les Hamilton of Pleasant Grove High School has talented prospects to work with on his roster. One in particular is Skyler Munson, who was the top performer at last Saturday's RT25 Camp.

"I've received a lot of letters, but I don't know if they're anything serious or not," said Munson, who will be a senior next season. "The school that I've had the most contact with is BYU."

Coach DuPaix has had his eye on Munson for some time now. The Cougar recruiting coordinator and running back coach has invited the quick, sure-handed receiver to attend BYU's Junior Day on Wednesday.

"I've been talking to Coach DuPaix a lot when I can, and I have a great relationship with him," said Munson. "We'll just see how things go, but I plan on being there for Junior Day."

This Wednesday will be a first for the 2013 prospect.

"I'm from here, but this will be my first time ever attending a BYU Junior Day," Munson said. "I've been down to BYU's summer camp but just not their Junior Day. I was down there for a seven-on-seven last year. I love their seven-on-seven camp and I scored a lot of touchdowns during the tournament."

Munson had good things to say about Coach DuPaix.

"I love Coach DuPaix and he's not only a great coach but a great person," said Munson. "I follow him on Twitter. The way he talks about his family and his life outside of football, he's a guy that I really respect."

Munson is hoping he does well enough during the Junior Day activities to earn a scholarship.

"Oh, I would love for that to happen," said Munson. "I would love it. BYU has been my dream school since I was a little kid. I would go there in a heartbeat if I got a scholarship offer."

Coming in at 6 feet and 170 pounds, Munson has played multiple positions at the varsity level on Pleasant Grove's high school football team. He's a sure-handed athlete who is light on his feet and has decent speed.

"I played quarterback my whole life until last summer when my coaches moved me to wide receiver," Munson said. "I moved to wide receiver last year and was leading our team in receptions. But our quarterbacks were struggling, so they moved me back out to quarterback about halfway through the season. I think wide receiver is probably my primary position though next year at Pleasant Grove."

Munson is one that BYU fans should be hearing more about in the future. Last year during BYU's summer camp, he earned the wide receiver MVP award. He was also named the overall National Underclassman Combine MVP down in Los Angeles last year. He was also invited to Oklahoma University last year and was named the Top Prospect Elite at the NUC camp, which is invitation-only.

On top of that, Munson is not only a standout football player but a track and field athlete who placed third in state in the long jump. He also plays centerfield for the Pleasant Grove baseball team, and holds a 3.91 GPA.
