BYU added additional depth to their defense yesterday as Alta cornerback Kimball Henstrom added a verbal commitment to the Cougar Class of 2019.
After a great offical visit and discussion with @kalanifsitake I’ve decided to continue my academic and athletic career at BYU. 100% committed 🔵⚪️. #BuiltNotBorn #gocougs @coachtuiaki @jernarogilford @CoachPHadley @BYUrecruiting pic.twitter.com/ZYLmHcRaAT— Kimball Henstrom (@KHenstrom) February 3, 2019
Henstrom preps at Alta High School, where as a senior he recorded 25 tackles, with 3.5 tackles for loss, four passes defended, a fumble recovery, and two interceptions with 48 return yards and one touchdown. As a junior he had one 12 yard rushing touchdown, 39 tackles, with 10 passes defended. Henstrom will join BYU as a preferred walk-on.
