Top WR Recruit Visits BYU Practice. More Planned.

A Northern California recruit, considered by one knowledgeable recruiting analyst as the top LDS wide receiver prospect in the last 10 years, visited BYU's practice yesterday as an interested and silent observer.

Austin Collie, who attended BYU's summer camp this year, was asked whether he was any closer to making a verbal commitment to a college, he said, "Stanford and BYU are still my top choices, as of right now. I have no idea which school it will be, but I'll just play it out. I have a while until I have to decide."

Collie said he plans to check out more BYU practices this year on unofficial visits. "The way I'm going to decide is just by visiting BYU and Stanford as much as I possibly can and go with whatever feels right."

Collie, or any recruit, can visit a college campus multiple times as long as they pay their own costs. His visits are not coordinated by either BYU or Stanford. Both schools can only invite him on one official recruiting visit and cover all reasonable traveling, food and accommodation expenses.
