Jason Munns Likes BYU Trip

Junior Day at BYU brought a lot of talented high school football players to campus. One of the most highly recruited of the day's guest is four-star quarterback Jason Munns. TotalBlueSports.com talked with Munns to find out his thoughts on the visit.

"I had no idea what to expect, because I had never been to BYU before," said Jason Munns. "[My family] came away very impressed. It was just a really good visit."

Friday Munns spent the day with Kyle Withingham at the University of Utah, getting a good look at their program, then came down to Provo on Saturday.

"Coach Whitingham said the facilities at BYU were nice," Munns said, "but that was a major understatement. The facilities at BYU were amazing. The trip to BYU defiantly changed my view of the school, I had such a good time."

Munns said Utah offered him a scholarship on his visit there, he also has offers from Arizona State, BYU, and Washington State.

"After I leave every school I've visited, I think to myself that I would be lucky to play there," Munns said. "Having been to Washington, Washington State, Utah and BYU's campus so far it has really made things confusing for me."

Munns is not sure when he will make his college decision. He indicated that he would just wait until it feels right. He said that he would definitely like to visit BYU again, because one day was not enough.

"I'm not sure if I'll make it for their summer camp," Munns said.

One of the highlights of Munns's visit was meeting with Coach Mendenhall in his office with his brother, grandfather and father.

"We were all very impressed with Coach Mendenahll," Munns said. "He is a coach I would love to play for. Its definitely apparent to me that he has BYU on the right track and the players have bought into his system."

Munns said that Coach Mendenhall explained that the QB at BYU has major responsibilities on and off the field.

"He said that the QB at BYU represents the school and the church," Munns said. "You have a lot of outside stuff like speaking at firesides and being a leader, and just representing the school."

The Blue-White game was also impressive for Munns who said that Fui Vakapuna definitely stuck out to him.

"That running back who just got back from his mission was unreal," Munns said. "He had great moves and was a nice running back."

When asked if the BYU and Utah coaches exchanged cheap shots at the other school, Munns said no.

"It's a big rivalry between the two, so they joke about that," Munns said, "but both coaches have a lot of respect for each other."

At the moment, Munns has no leaders and likes all the schools that have offered him. He said each school has their pros and cons. He did mention that a good season for BYU would be helpful for him because it will show that BYU is good program.
