BYU picked up another commit today in 6’5” 285 pound Offensive/Defensive tackle JT Gentry (Class of 2016).

Gentry, the 19th commit in BYU’s 2016 class is the third offensive line commit this week, joining Lisala Tai and Caden Haws.  He preps at Columbine High School, where as a senior he was named to the 5A All-State First-Team (Colorado Preps), and the All-Colorado team (Denver Post). Gentry has also done well on the track team (shot put), and in the classroom which has resulted in interest from a number of Ivy League schools.

Gentry is rated 2-stars by Rivals and Scout, and has not been rated by ESPN. He holds scholarship offers from Air Force, BYU, Colorado School of Mines, University of Pennsylvania, San Diego, and South Dakota. He was also recruited by Bucknell, Colorado, Colorado State, Columbia, Fordham, Harvard, Princeton, SDSU, Utah State, Washington, Wyoming, and Yale. Haws committed to the Cougars on January 24, 2016.
