Future Cougar Report: Marcus Mathews

Marcus Mathews was the fourth member of the recruiting class of 2007 to commit to BYU Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall. The 4-star wide receiver was the first high profile commitment for the Cougars. Eighteen verbal commitments later, the 6-foot-4 Mathews from Beaverton, Oregon is still one of the headliners of a strong recruiting class for BYU.

"This last week we played Aloha [High School] and we beat them 27-6," Marcus Mathews said. "I had a pretty good game and caught 4 passes for about 75 yard and had 2 TDs. One of my touchdowns was from 35 yards and the other was from 13 yards."

A two-way starter for Southridge High School, Mathews also had a good as a defensive back with 15 total tackles.

"I had a pretty good game defensively," said Mathews. "I was in on about 10 tackles and made probably 5 solo tackles."

Despite being fully immersed in his high school football season, Mathews is keeping an eye on the Cougars' season as well. He is also receiving a lot of recruiting attention from other colleges.

"There was no BYU game to watch due to the bye week, which is unfortunate because it's always a ton of fun to see them play," Mathews said. "My commitment to BYU is as strong as ever. I still receive letters and e-mails from other schools such as Oregon, Oregon State, Oklahoma State. I get several letters a week even though those coaches know I'm firm in my commitment."
