Wiley No Longer Committed to BYU

Zeke Wiley, who had previously committed to play football for BYU and Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall, is now keeping his options open. Wiley will continue the recruiting process by looking at those schools that show him interest and then make a decision.

"I still like BYU, but I like Utah as well and some other schools might come with offers," said Zeke Wiley, a 6-5, 315 OL/DL prospect from Orem high school. "I'm just going to wait and see what offers come in and then decide."

So why did he commit to BYU early on?

"I was excited that they offered me and I really do like BYU and Coach Mendenhall," said Wiley. "I'd love to play there, but I'd love to play for Utah as well and some other schools."

As of right now Wiley states that Utah and BYU are dead even.

"I like Utah because they have a good tradition of putting out good defensive linemen", said Wiley. "I like their coaching staff and playing there would be great."

BYU also has several things in its favor, however, Wiley wants to see proof on the field that things have really turned around.

"I really like Coach Mendenhall and how he does things, but I really want to see how they do this year and all," said Wiley. "I like that my teammate Ryan Freeman is going there. He's a great guy and playing with him again is something I like."

The real key for Wiley may be if BYU, Utah or any other school offers his cousins, twins Josh and Micah Wily back in Hawaii.

"Right now I'm really thinking that I want to play with my cousins," said Wiley. "If BYU or Utah were to offer them, then I'd really be likely to sign with them. I really want to play with my cousins in college."
