Kamakani Crosby

Newbury Park (CA) defensive lineman Kamakani Crosby says BYU is high on his list and that he plans to make multiple visits to Provo

Kamakani “Mack” Crosby from Newbury Park High School (CA) was first offered by BYU back in February of 2016 when he popped up early on BYU’s radar. TotalBlueSports.com caught up with the 6-4, 285-pound defensive lineman to catch a glimpse of the recruiting landscape for him currently.

Hailing from Newbury Park High School, Kamakani Crosby, who is LDS, has remained in contact with the coaching staff at BYU since the day he was first offered.  

“My recruiting process has remained strong with BYU,” said Crosby. “I love the coaching staff and the strong brotherhood they have built. My relationship will always remain strong with BYU, the family roots there are so strong. I always keep BYU in mind.”

During the year plus since he was offered, Crosby has primarily talked with BYU head coach Kalani Sitake. The two often talk about about topics other than football.

“I talk most with Coach Sitake,” he said. “We mostly talk about the family and how much of an impact they have on my decision, as well as where and how I'd fit into the program.”

Heading into his senior year, Crosby currently only has one scholarship offer and that’s from BYU. With that being said, BYU is high on his list.

“BYU remains to be one of my top schools,” Crosby said. “I like the brotherhood and the family atmosphere that Coach Sitake implemented. It creates a bond and trust and it transfers onto the field. To win championships you have to be able to lean on the guys next to you and remain solid. You have to fight for the guy next to you.”

Crosby plans on visiting BYU soon. He hopes to get a firsthand view of the campus and learn more about the program on a personal basis.

“I plan on taking both unofficial visits and an official visit to BYU,” said Crosby. “While there I want to fully grasp the true meaning behind being a Cougar through the players, coaching staff, and fan base.”
