Slovis will be BYU's next QB, and here's why

I hesitated saying, “Great” because I don’t know the final receiver count or who our Linemen are, KSL writes a great behind the scenes of how this all came about.
Transfer QB Kedon Slovis is BYU-bound, but who’s catching his passes? |

Very interesting:
"Slovis will report to BYU on the first full weekend of the New Year — sometime around Jan. 7, though wide receiver Chase Roberts has already texted him to see if the former USC signal caller can arrive sooner from his parents’ home in Scottsdale, Arizona.

But the 6-foot-3, 215-pound quarterback has already begun building relationships with his new receivers and pass catchers. Slovis took a visit to Provo shortly after declaring his intentions to enter the transfer portal; and while there, he collected the phone numbers of Roberts, Keanu Hill, Kody Epps and the rest of the BYU receiving group to pick their brains and establish trust with the group — even before he had finalized his decision.

But a group that he first got to know when he worked out with Hall and former BYU quarterback John Beck of 3DQB in Southern California began to assimilate in his mind, and Slovis began to picture himself running Aaron Roderick’s offense. But the conversation began to go two ways after those thoughts began to become more and more real."

1 Jaron Hall worked out with him at John Becks’ 3DQB
2 Hall waited til SLovis was ready to announce before he declared for the draft, just so Coug. Nation would have a continues QB chain. Good for Transfers who are looking to know.
3 Slovis was on track for a big year at Pitt. Injuries and his coaches were recruited away, leaving him with a new offense to run.
4 BYU is still looking for a couple of new QBs in the Transfer P.
5 BYU is still looking for a couple of receivers to fill in for Nacua, Romney, Cosper (retiring)
6 BYU has a solid core of Epps, Hill, Robertson and Rex. That group is talented enough for the Big 12, There are a couple of Transfer P names thrown about, as well as talented HS kids already commited (, but BYU also plans on adding to the group, both from high school recruits and transfers. Eastern Washington receiver Freddie Roberson, who caught 45 passes for 797 yards and seven touchdowns last year, will reportedly visit Provo as a potential graduate transfer destination. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound wide from Seattle also has interest from Arizona State, Washington State and Tulane, he has said.

The Cougars also have an offer to Snow College receiver Marquis Montgomery, a 6-foot-5 native of Kapolei, Hawaii, who had 329 receiving yards and five touchdowns in two seasons with the Badgers.

BYU has already signed four-star tight end Jackson Bowers from Mountain View High School in Mesa, Arizona, and former Sierra Canyon High basketball standout Josiah “JoJo” Phillips, the 6-foot-5, 190-pound receiver from Lancaster, California.)
7) With Hill in as the New DC and a entire Coaching staff, It is clear to me that BYU is 100% commited to not just landing in the Big 12 but to be an impact in it.
8) The INL collective was created to have a “Slush Fund” for Football and Basketball so that BYU can compete with the INL $$ out there. It is a “Bid for Hire” world out there for the top talent. I read where a top recruit was paid 3.5 million by USC to transfer.

9 Just because Slovis committed, doesn’t mean the job is a lock, he has to earn it. but really, 45 or is it 55 P5 games experience (Hall had 11 in his career)
Slovis is in his last year of CFB, Has NFL talent, wants this last year to be his best. Cougar nation is going to love him.

10 also think about a Sol-Jay Maiava-Peters 3rd or 4th down package. We need one or two yards. If you saw Penn States old school red zone line up of Tee formation. a group of Sol-Jay, with Ropati and bruiser, Aidan Robbins leading the way would be tough to stop.
